How to Play Eurojackpot

Simply select five main numbers from 1 to 50 and then two additional Euro numbers from 1 to 10. As the Euro numbers are drawn from a different set of balls to the main numbers, it is possible for the same number to appear as both a main number and a Euro number in the same result.

You can select your own numbers or use the ‘Quick Pick’ option when buying tickets to randomly generate a set of numbers. Alternatively, you can use the Random Number Generator before you purchase your ticket to find a set of numbers you like.

There are 12 prize tiers on offer in Eurojackpot, and anyone who matches all five main numbers and both Euro numbers in the draw will win a share of the jackpot, which starts at €10 million. If nobody matches all of the numbers in a draw, the jackpot will roll over into the next draw, until it reaches its cap of €90 million.

Eurojackpot tickets can be bought online or through authorised retail stores in a participating country.

Buying Eurojackpot tickets online is the easiest and safest way to play, as your tickets will be stored in your online account and automatically checked on your behalf. If you win a prize, you will be notified straight away and the winnings will be paid into your account for you to withdraw or use on future ticket purchases. Getting started with playing online is simple:

  1. Open an online account with the lottery operator in your country
  2. Complete your account registration (this may include verifying your age)

Play Eurojackpot via a Retail Store

If you live in a participating country, you can play Eurojackpot by buying tickets from an authorised retail store. Play cards will be available for you to mark out which numbers you want to play. After that, you hand the play card to the cashier to receive a ticket confirming your numbers and the draw (or draws) for which the ticket is valid. You will need to keep your ticket safe, as it will act as proof of your winnings if you win a prize. You should also sign the back of your ticket to demonstrate proof of ownership and to avoid legal disputes should you lose the ticket and someone else tries to claim the prize.

Playing Eurojackpot from a Non-Participating Country

If you’re on holiday or are living in a non-participating country, you can still buy Eurojackpot tickets. Visit the Playing Abroad page for more details.

How to Play Eurojackpot

To play Eurojackpot, you must select five numbers between 1 and 50, plus two additional numbers from 1 to 10. To win the jackpot, you will need to match all seven numbers drawn. In the event that no ticket holder matches all seven numbers required, the top prize rolls over to the following draw.

The jackpot is capped at €90 million, but in the event that funds from ticket sales exceed this amount, the excess funds are rolled down and added to the second tier prize pool.

Eurojackpot has 12 prize tiers and the winning combinations, as well as the odds of winning, are as follows:
