## Strategy

Compared to other lotteries, such as Euro Millions and German lotto 6 out 49,, EuroJackpot is arranged this way, so that the main prize finds its winner more often (a chance to win a Euro Millions jackpot - 1 of 117 million, and less 1 of 139 million for German Lotto). As a result, the jackpot does not accumulate to the same levels, such as the Euro Million jackpot, as it is more often won. The biggest EuroJackpot jackpot has been raffled 15 May 2015 of the year. The prize went to the winner from the Czech Republic and equaled 90.000.000,00 euros.
