Almost 3 months later, a German player scored €58,693,173.90 when their numbers lined up with those drawn during the 5th December draw. The third biggest win was again made by a Finnish player, on the 4th April the same year. This winner’s jackpot was €57,275,841.60.

PICKING STRATEGIES WITH EURO JACKPOT

Most people think that their family will bring them luck in the lottery, and choose to use birthday dates, anniversary dates and the ages of children and grandchildren as their chosen numbers.
