How Does the Eurojackpot Work?
Eurojackpot's winning odds are as good as some of the best lotteries in the world, and even better than others.
The odds of winning a lower division prize are a notable 1:49 while odds of winning a first division prize are 1 in 139 Million. Eurojackpot's overall odd of winning a prize is 1 in 32.
Jackpots begin at €10 million and can climb to a ceiling jackpot prize of €120 million.
To play, you must select five numbers from 1-50, plus two additional numbers from 1-12. These two extra numbers, aside from being included in the jackpot winning combination, give players more chances to win extra prizes.
12 Different Ways to Win
There are 12 winning categories in the Eurojackpot lottery. To win the first division prize, players must match the 5 main numbers and two bonus numbers drawn — but you can win a prize with as few as 3 correct numbers. By looking deeply into how number patterns work in the Eurojackpot, you can improve the odds to your favor.

Eurojackpot prizes, like Euro Millions, are pari-mutuel. This means that the lower level prize amounts will vary depending on the Jackpot amount. The bigger the Jackpot, the bigger the lower division prizes become as well.
