The Eurojackpot, filled with 104 million euros, was not cracked on Tuesday. This means that the next draw this Friday will be for a record sum of 120 million euros.
After changing the rules of the game, amounts of up to 120 million euros can now be reached instead of the previous 90 million euros. Who is allowed to bet, when do the numbers have to be submitted where and how high is the probability of becoming a multi-millionaire? We have compiled the answers.
There are now two Eurojackpot draws per week – always on Tuesdays and Fridays. It is drawn at 8 p.m. German time under notarial or official supervision in Helsinki, Finland. The game revenues from the 18 participating countries are combined, which is why such high winnings of 10 to 120 million euros can be achieved.
For the main prize, five numbers out of 50 and two so-called Euro numbers out of twelve must be typed correctly.
The next drawing is on Friday 22nd July. You can make your selection at the lottery acceptance points and online.
Game participants must be at least 18 years of age.
The stake is two euros per tip. The additional processing fee may vary from region to region. In Berlin, this is 50 cents per lottery ticket.
Each field on a ticket consists of two number blocks. In one block, five numbers out of 50 are ticked, in the other two out of twelve “Euronumbers”. Up to ten of these betting fields can be filled in per betting slip. The number of correct numbers determines in which of the twelve prize categories the participant ends up.
The chance of winning class 1 is about 1:140 million. This corresponds to the chance of winning LOTTO 6 out of 49.
After the drawing last Tuesday, no player in the 18 European partner countries was able to win first place, worth 104 million euros. Therefore, the jackpot is now in the three-digit million range for the third time since the product change at the end of March.
The drawing of the numbers is left to chance. Nevertheless, “professional” lottery players are looking for patterns in order to leave as little as possible to pure luck.
One theory says that you should primarily bet on unpopular numbers, i.e. number or number combinations that have not been drawn for a long time.
The second approach is based on the opposite: numbers that are as popular and frequently drawn as possible should be typed.
On Tuesday, July 19, no player in the 18 European partner countries was able to win first place. In second place, four players were able to win 891,788.00 euros. They were only missing one more correct “Euro number” to crack the Eurojackpot.
In the third prize category, 154,760.20 euros each went to nine players.
