What Are My Odds of Winning the EuroJackpot Draw?

You may need to brace yourself here, as the EuroJackpot is a seven-ball lottery game that’s far from easy to win.

In fact, the odds of landing the coveted jackpot are an astronomical one in 95,344,200, which makes it second only to the Euro millions in terms of continental lotteries that are the hardest to win.

How Much Can I Win on the EuroJackpot Lottery?

Whilst these prohibitive odds may initially deter you from playing the EuroJackpot, the size of the prizes on offer should more than compensate for this.

For example, the minimum first tier prize for the EuroJackpot is €10 million, which is reset every time the lottery is one. So, if you match the seven numbers drawn with your selection, you’re guaranteed a share of this prize. This is considerably higher than many of the alternative European lotteries.

In fact, the average jackpot prize fund equates to a whopping €37,247,451, which is an impressive payout by anybody’s standards.
