History reference: the Eurojackpot lottery was created largely thanks to and partly in opposition to the EuroMillions lottery. An example of the latter clearly showed, that players from several countries allow more tickets to be sold and guarantee a much larger grand prize, rather than local lotteries of a particular country. Therefore, after a cycle of meetings and agreements, potential participating countries, which took several years, in March 2012 of the year passed the first lottery draw. At this point, the drawing took place only in 7 countries: Germany, Denmark, Italy, The Netherlands, Slovenia, Finland and Estonia. And literally two weeks later, Italy joined the drawing.

Initially, the lottery used, as it is today, 50 main balls, of which dropped out during the draw 5, but the "euro stars" was 8. And for the jackpot the rule was: he could grow no more 12 draws in a row. If none of the players succeeded in guessing the jackpot, then it was distributed among those, who guessed 5 balls and 1 "Eurostar".

In February 2013 of the year Iceland joins the Eurojackpot lottery, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden and Croatia. And then the limit on the number of jackpot transitions from one draw to another was removed., instead, a limit was introduced on the amount of the jackpot in the amount of 90 million euros. In this case, the jackpot remains at the top mark as desired number of draws exactly as long as, until it is played. All additional funds, collected from ticket sales, are no longer directed to the formation of the jackpot, and to increase the prize pool of the next level, when guessed 5 balls and 1 "Eurostar". The winning fund of this level will grow until (of course, on condition, that the jackpot will not be drawn), until the amount is 90 million euros. In this case, additional funds will be directed to the formation of a fund for those, who will only guess 5 balls. The filling ceiling of this fund – The same 90 million. In this case, the fund for those, who will guess 4 ball and 2 "Eurostars". Etc.
