Eurojackpot is Europe’s most widely played lottery, with tickets on sale in 18 countries, and it’s also available to play online through LotteryWorld.com. With a jackpot that can hit a maximum of €90 million, it offers bigger prizes than many other international lotteries.
You don’t have to be located in one of Eurojackpot’s 18 participating countries to play, which means you can choose your numbers online from around the world. Just follow the steps below to play:
To win you have to match the numbers you have entered to the winning numbers drawn on a Friday night.

How much does it cost to play on Eurojackpot?
Eurojackpot costs $4.20 for a single entry. One-month and three-month subscriptions can work out cheaper per entry but you have to pay for each draw the numbers are entered into.
When do draws take place?
Eurojackpot draws take place every Friday at 9:00pm EET. The winning numbers are added to the Eurojackpot Results page soon after.
What are the Euro numbers?
The Euro numbers are two bonus numbers that are drawn after the five main ones. Many of Eurojackpot’s prizes, including the jackpot, require you to match one or both of them. The Euro numbers are picked from a separate pool to the main numbers, so it is possible to see the same number appear twice in the same draw.

The jackpot starts at a guaranteed €10 million and will reset to this amount for the draw after the jackpot is won.
What is the biggest jackpot ever won?
The maximum jackpot of €90 million has been won on several occasions. A 36-year-old cleaner from Berlin, known only as Christina, famously won that amount when she bet on Eurojackpot online on June 1, 2018.
Is Eurojackpot the same as EuroMillions?
No, Eurojackpot and EuroMillions are two completely separate lotteries with different jackpots, prizes and draw days. EuroMillions takes place twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays where as Eurojackpot only takes place on Fridays. More information on EuroMillions can be found on its dedicated page.
