EuroJackpot began in March 2012 and is a pan-European lottery game played in Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden. The game has a guaranteed minimum jackpot prize of €10 million, with rollovers regularly boosting it to much higher amounts, and a jackpot cap of €90 million.
EuroJackpot drawings are held in Helsinki, Finland on Friday nights, when two machines dispense five main numbers and two supplementary numbers, known as Soles in Spain and Euro Numbers or Bonus Numbers in the other participating countries.
To play EuroJackpot, you select five main numbers from 1 to 50 and two Soles from a pool of 1 to 10, matching all seven to win the jackpot.

If you live in a country that does not participate in EuroJackpot, you can still play through a lottery concierge service, who will send a locally-based agent to buy the ticket on your behalf. A copy of the ticket will be uploaded to your account and will be checked after the draw, with any winnings you are owed paid into your account.
