European Lotteries Back To Basics Tonight

The two biggest lotteries in Europe have brand new basic jackpots to play for tonight, as they were both won by single ticket holders in their last draws. The EuroJackpot, which had rolled over 10 times and amassed a jackpot of €46 million, was won on Friday 12th April 2013 by a single ticket holder from Hesse in Germany, then the Euromillions jackpot of €15 / £12 million was won on the following Tuesday by a Spanish player.

The EuroJackpot has a guaranteed starting jackpot of €10 million, and the weekly draw is held every Friday evening in Helsinki at 21.00 CET. However, the EuroJackpot, which is played across 14 countries, is becoming well known for generating big jackpots via its rollovers, and last week saw the biggest jackpot ever. The winner was a man in his 30s from Wiesbaden which is the capital city of the Hesse region, who took home an impressive €46,079,338.

The Euromillions is the more established lottery, which has been played across Europe since 2004. It has a guaranteed starting jackpot of €15 / £12 million, and has seen an impressive four jackpot winners so far this month. Could the trend continue with another winner of this brand new jackpot being found tonight? If this month’s results so far are anything to go by, it is looking very likely indeed!
