EuroJackpot Lottery – Take Your Transnational Roll at the Odds

One of the newest lotteries on the block is EuroJackpot. It is a transnational lottery played once a week. It’s fairly young – started in March 2012. The odds is what made this one for me a little more interesting than many of the others. As a transnational lottery it is also attracting some good action which means a fast building jackpot.

The Odds at EuroJackpot Lottery

EuroJackpot Lottery is quoted at roughly 1 in 59 million versus 1 in 117 for EuroMillions or 1 in 139 million in the German Lotto to win the big jackpot. Winning a lottery still comes down to a certain amount of luck but I do like increasing my odds.

EuroJackpot Lottery Jackpot

EuroJackpot Lottery starts at a minimum of €10 million and grows to a €90 million cap. I personally liked their old rules of a roll down. That meant that when it hit a certain level and no one got all jackpot numbers, the jackpot would roll down to the next tier.

EuroJackpot Lottery Complaints

Folks, I didn’t even bother to go there. This is an official lottery. It’s young but they are paying out already on a regular basis. They do have the usual email and snail mail noise with people using the reputation of this lottery to go after personal details for identity theft and con people on fees for processing ‘their win’. It’s important to remember that players can’t win if they haven’t played!

Who Is EuroJackpot Lottery

EuroJackpot Lottery is owned by the countries that participate. Revenue goes to ‘good causes’ in those countries but it’s a young enough lottery that info hasn’t actually been published yet. Given the whole rules and regulations (and boy do they like to enforce them) of the European Union, I can only assume that they are all in place. The good news is, they haven’t had any problem paying out to their winners.

The Bottom Line at EuroJackpot Lottery

EuroJackpot Lottery has a good range for winning with the lowest prize at 1 in 35 odds. It appears to have better odds than some of the other lotteries and this seems substantiated by the jackpot payouts. In January of 2013, one person in Finland won the big bonanza of €26,540, 651.

Pros:

Official Lottery

Good Jackpot

Better Odds

Cons:

Once a Week

We give EuroJackpot Lottery a thumbs up. What a way to spend Friday night, sitting there to see if you’ve won. TGIF folks!
