German Lottery Jackpot Record is SMASHED in €76m EuroJackpot Win

German Lottery Jackpot Record smashed – 76 Millions with one hit !

German Lottery Jackpot Record smashed ! The EuroJackpot lotto celebrated its fourth birthday in style last Friday (March 25th 2016). It is the second highest jackpot payout in its entire history. The top prize totalling €76.766.891 was claimed by one lucky ticket-holder from the North Rhine-Westphalia region of Germany.

Not only was Friday night’s win the second largest in EuroJackpot history, it was also the biggest lottery jackpot ever claimed on German soil. The previous German lottery jackpot record was set in December 2014, when one ticketholder in Hessen bagged a huge – but significantly lower prize of €59 million.

The winning numbers in Friday’s draw were as follows:

9, 10, 19, 20, 35 and 3, 4

Our €76 million jackpot winner wasn’t the only player to win big in this massive EuroJackpot draw. Six players matched 5 regular numbers plus one Euro Number to tap into a juicy €421,735 second tier prize fund. A further nine players matched five and shared a third tier prize fund worth €99,232.

An amazing total of 1.237.989 players won a prize in the draw. If you were one of them, congratulations!

EuroJackpot keeps on upping its game

Four years into the EuroJackpot lottery, the continent’s fastest-growing multinational game shows no signs of slowing down. Friday’s €76 million enters the history books as the second biggest jackpot paid out in this particular lotto’s history. Second only to the maximum prize of €90 million won by a player in the Czech Republic in 2015 (read all about it in PlayEuroLotto’s Lottery Moments of 2015).

This month’s win reinforces EuroJackpot’s growing reputation as the lotto that offers a unique combination of good odds and genuinely massive prizes. As awareness of this great game grows across its numerous European host nations and beyond. Thanks to online lottery sites, we’re going to see increased participation and more and more of these jumbo jackpots!

What’s so great about EuroJackpot

EuroJackpot is just like EuroMillions, but it’s a little bit easier to win! You choose from the same amount of regular numbers, but you pick two Euro Numbers out of ten – as opposed to two Lucky Stars out of eleven in EuroMillions. The end result: easier odds!
