STA, 25 March 2022 - EuroJackpot is celebrating ten years of being present in Slovenia. Over the past ten years of the game, lottery players have won more than 5.2 million different prizes worth EUR 116.8 million in total, and four Slovenians have become EuroJackpot millionaires, said state lottery operator Loterija Slovenija.

EuroJackpot in Slovenia has raised a total of just under EUR 62.8 million in funds for Slovenian disability, humanitarian and sports organisations.

The state budget received EUR 31.9 million from taxes on the winnings paid out, and Slovenian municipalities got EUR 11.2 million, Loterija Slovenija said, adding that the funds had been used, among other things, to build an extension to the Grosuplje community health centre and the beer fountain in Žalec.

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary, an additional lottery draw will be introduced, so the game will now be held twice a week. The jackpot can now roll over up to EUR 120 million.

EuroJackpot, a transnational European lottery, was launched in March 2012.
