Europe - EuroJackpot
EuroJackpot is a lottery game that spans several European countries with a once per week drawing on Friday nights. The game rules and participating countries are very similar to the wildly successful EuroMillions as one of the new breed of jackpot lottery games that benefits from a huge pool of players from many countries, and that's why the top prizes are so much larger than single country lotteries can get. The EuroJackpot lottery has a rollover that enables the jackpot to increase in value and get as high as €90 million. So if big money is your goal, this is a game worth playing!
