EuroJackpot Top Prize Scales New Heights – July 19th, 2012July 20, 2012 26 Comments
One of the newest lottos on the
scene, the EuroJackpot, is causing lottery excitement this week,
because the European draw’s top prize has reached never-before-seen
The EuroJackpot jumbo payout has inflated to an unprecedented €21 million – which is the highest jackpot the game has ever reached.
This is thanks to the weekly draw’s nine consecutive rollovers, with the prize being bumped up by €1 million or €2 million each time the top sum goes unclaimed.
Indeed, the last time somebody bagged this amazing windfall was back in May, when a lucky fan landed a €19.5 million jackpot playing in the May 11th draw – the first EuroJackpot jackpot to be won – so it is high time somebody pocketed this record-smashing payout.
