There are 12 winning categories, and to win the EuroJackpot lottery's first prize, players must correctly guess 5 regular numbers as well as the two additional numbers.
The general idea in playing this lottery is: to increase your chances of winning, you should play more number selections. Having more selections means added chance of you getting consolation prizes in the lower division tiers.
EuroJackpot prizes are also pari-mutuel. This means that the lower level prizes are directly linked to the available money in the lotto's prize pool. Plus of course, the number of people who actually win the category, so expect that these prizes will change from draw to draw.
