Record highs for the EuroJackpot Lottery - €27 Million jackpot on offer, and €54 Million at Lottoland

18 January 2013

LONDON, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The EuroJackpot lottery jackpot has risen to set a new record: €27 million, or approximately £22.5 million, are on offer on Friday evening as the grand prize.

EuroJackpot has now seen eleven consecutive rollovers in its current streak, breaking the previous jackpot record of €26 million which was set in August 2012. A lucky player from Germany, who held the only winning ticket, broke that particular winning streak to take home the entire jackpot.

The EuroJackpot lottery was launched in March 2012, and is on offer online in most European countries. Lottoland.com, which is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, brings the game to the UK and offers tickets to UK residents.

Similar to the EuroMillions, EuroJackpot's lottery format follows a 5-from-50 and 2-from-8 structure, with players needing to match all 7 numbers to win the jackpot prize. The probability of matching the 7-number draw is approximately 1 in 59 million, making it almost twice as high as the competing EuroMillions lottery. It's worth noting that this Friday's EuroMillions jackpot is actually lower than the EuroJackpot, which is at an estimated €26 Million.

Lottoland.com seeks to provide a unique spin on the traditional lottery, offering additional features like the DoublePot; the DoublePot allows players to double up their jackpot winnings for an additional fee. Coupled with the high jackpots already on offer this week, lucky players at Lottoland could have twice the reasons to celebrate a win, should they walk away with the €54 million on offer for the EuroJackpot, and €52 million for the EuroMillions.
