Lotteries and probability calculation
Anyone who wants to become an excellent gambler should know something about probability calculation. The basic principle of a lottery is that a lot of people buy a ticket to participate. Lottery winners are with the money of all the participants. Everyone wants to be a winner, but this happens only to a few. This because of the simple fact that the winning odds of the Eurojackpot lottery are low, namely 1:95.344.200. How more people participate, how lower the winning chances are. Past Jackpots have proven that nothing is impossible though. Besides that, the chance to win one of the other is much higher. Eurojackpot has twelve prize categories in total. The highest categories contain the most money. The chance that you win one of the prizes of the other categories is 1:42.

Other good news is that the lottery also pays out at least fifty percent of the lottery tickets revenue.
Lucky Eurojackpot winners from three countries
Germany and the Czech Republic are certainly not the only countries with big Eurojackpot winners. Just recently the winning number fell on a lottery ticket in the Dutch city of Rotterdam! It was worth a stunning 90 million euros. The Dutch winner wasn’t the only lucky one this time though. He had the same winning combination as two other persons, from Denmark and Germany. So this Jackpot did not knew any boundaries and shows exactly why Eurojackpot is so great. Every lucky winner got 18 million euros each.
This European lottery is known for its amazing Jackpot. It contains a minimum amount of 10 million and will increase over time if there’s no hit. Since the prize of one Eurojackpot ticket is just two euros, it’s definitely worth trying! The number combination is always completely random and a participant can make his or her own combination. This is why a Jackpot hit does not take place every week. This has a positive consequence as well. Without a hit the Jackpot is worth millions more next week and even more after that.
How many times has the 90 million Superjackpot fallen?

It’s hard to imagine all the things you can do with so much money. Did you know that this Superjackpot has fallen three times in the history of this lottery. One time a player from Finland was the lucky winner, and the other two times persons from Germany and the Czech Republic became millionaires in an instant. It comes as no surprise that the Eurojackpot is very popular in Germany. It’s one of the European countries with the most winners. Perhaps you’re the next one in the list of winners. One day you’re a normal lottery participant, and the next day incredibly rich. As Forrest Gump once said: ‘Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get!’.
