The winning combination is made up by extracting 5 different balls from a drum containing numbers from 1 to 50, and two additional balls (euronumbers) from another drum, from 1 to 12. The more numbers you guess correctly the more money you win. There are 12 prize tiers in each Eurojackpot draw, in ascending order: 2+0, 2+1, 1+2, 3+0, 3+1, 2+2, 3+2, 4+0, 4+1, 4+2, 5+0, 5+1 and 5+2. You can see the exact amounts for each tier from inside the simulation.
The draw is held in Helsinki every Friday. The amount of each prize depends on several factors: fixed distribution percentages for each category, collection and participation by country. If there are no 1st category winners (5 numbers and 2 euronumbers) the prize is added to the jackpot fund for the following draw.
The winning odds for matching 5+1 is 1 in 5.959.013
The winning odds for hitting the jackpot (5+2) is 1 in 95.344.200
Eurojackpot ticket costs 2€ in most countries.
