“The Eurojackpot is a European success story. We are proud to be significantly involved and to be able to continue our work,” said Andreas Kötter. Since the first Eurojackpot draw in 2012, the threads for the Eurojackpot have come together at WestLotto. At the company headquarters in Münster, the tips from all participating countries are recorded and the winnings and odds are evaluated. In Bled, the total of 34 state-licensed lottery companies confirmed WestLotto’s outstanding leadership role so far in the gaming offering, which reaches around 325 million people in Europe.

After starting with state-licensed lottery companies from seven countries, the Eurojackpot cooperation has now grown to 19 nations. Most recently, the Greek company OPAP joined the merger in March. Germany is involved with all 16 federal state companies from the German Lotto and Toto Block (DLTB). The draws are carried out every Tuesday and Friday. According to the formula 5 out of 50 and the Euro numbers 2 out of 12, a jackpot of between 10 and 120 million euros is played.
