Why Do Some EuroMillions Players Win More Than Others?

EuroMillions playersEuroMillions players from across the continent have dreams of picking the next winning combination and spending their cash on everything they have ever wanted, but some might argue that top prize winners are more likely to come from certain countries than others. Some EuroMillions players might have even wondered if they’d have more chance of winning the jackpot if they lived in a particular country? We investigate.

EuroMillions Tickets

All participating countries produced winners, but it is hard to deny that some have fared better than others. France leads with 84 jackpot winners, and just ahead of Spain on 82, while Luxembourg, one of the later participating countries, has had just 2 top prize winners.

Number of Players

If you think about it, some of the countries have a much bigger population than others, with bigger participating EuroMillions players. Therefore, it makes sense that more tickets are sold in certain countries. In France alone, for example, there are 65 million people living, compared that of 580,000 living in Luxembourg, so it is normal to expect the nation with the larger number will have more EuroMillions players entering draws and therefore much better odds of winning the top prizes.

Early Starters

At the launch of the EuroMillions game, tickets only went on sale in the UK, France and Spain. Fast forward to eight months later and the other six countries entered the game, Spain, France and the UK have had eight months’ head start to create jackpot winners, and those nations remain the three most jackpot producing countries to this day.

Additional Entries

Certain countries such as Portugal, offer tickets where it is possible to pick more than the five main numbers and two Lucky Stars. EuroMillions players then pay for every additional combination. These entries naturally increase your odds of winning and the main reason why Portugal has had nearly as many top prize winners as the United Kingdom despite having a smaller population.

Random Variation

Each EuroMillions draw is completely random. There is no guarantee that the number of winners produced by one country will correlate precisely to the number of participants from each nation. Just like if you would toss a coin a hundred times, it may not result in 50 heads and 50 tails, where the jackpot winner comes from is entirely down to chance.

EuroMillions Players Odds Remain the Same

While you might wonder if you are residing in an unlucky country, the important thing to remember is that the odds of any ticket winning the top prize are the same, whether you are playing from the UK, Sweden or France.  If you taking on the next big jackpot, you can pick your lucky digits here and play.

Good Luck!

Grim Muerto Slot Game + Chances To Unlock Free Spins!

Grim Muerto is the latest slot game by Play n Go boasting 5 reels and 20 paylines. Based on the Dia de Muertos or ‘Day of the Dead’ celebrations, the slot game features a Mexican Mariachi band.

Grim Muerto is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot. Based on the pleasant Día de Muertos celebrations, it can be played across mobile, tablet and desktop devices. With plenty of zest and thrills, it has an obvious Mexican theme.




The game is based on the Day of the Dead which is a holiday celebrated in Mexico where friends and family pray for and remember the family and friends’ members who have passed away. Featuring spookily good looking members of a Mexican Mariachi band, they include Tauro the trumpeter, Amador the accordionist, Vincente on the vihuela and Fernando the fiddler.

Grim Muerto Wild

Other icons on the reels include the candles scatter symbol, the book scatter symbol, and the guitar wild – the guitar wild can substitute for any other icon except the scatter and is the highest value prize rewarding you with x50 your wager when you get 5 on a payline.



In Grim Muerto, 1 reel is highlighted by a before each spin – if the guitar wild symbol lands on that chosen reel, it duplicates to replace other symbols on that reel.

Grim Muerto Free Spins

The highlight attraction is the Free Spins feature which is triggered when the book scatter symbol appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 – this will reward you with 10 free spins. The good news is that free spins can be re-triggered on an unlimited basis until the maximum win (covered below) is                                                                     won.

If you get 1 or 2 candle symbols on the reels in the feature, you will get 3 or 6 additional free spins respectively. There’s more – the book reveals a high value Mariachi symbol before the feature starts which acts as an additional wild throughout the feature! Furthermore, between 2 and 5 reels are highlighted on every free spin – if a wild or extra wild lands on these selected reels, it duplicates to replace all other symbols on those reels.

There is also a Second Chance feature where you can still trigger the Free Spins feature when only 2 book scatter symbols appear – you get to pick 1 of the 4 symbols on the screen for your chance to enter the Free Spins feature or win cash prizes.

Grim Muerto

Grim Muerto is a medium variance slot game with wins of up to 2,500 times your stake possible on every single spin – the bigger wins will come in the Free Spins feature due to the extra wild and up to 5 reels highlighted where wilds can be duplicated. Highly entertaining, this is a great game from Play ‘N Go. I also recommend you try some of Play ‘N Go’s other slots with Book of Dead highly recommended.

Mega Joker winner will sure enjoy a mega weekend!

Mega Joker Slot GameWe love a winner story to kick off Friday morning 🙂 A huge congratulations to lucky “Morgud” from Kopervik in Norway who won the €21,769 jackpot in our Mega Joker instant win game last night.

What a fantastic start to the weekend! 👏👏👏

Mega Joker is one of our most popular classic slots, so perhaps no introduction is needed. But for anyone new to online casino games, it’s good to know a little more…

The Mega Joker slot has all the features of a very classic slot game, but with added benefits, because it also contains modern components like the “supermeter mode” and mystery wins – as well as the progressive jackpot which can be won at any time, as “Morgud” found out last night!

The look and style of the game harkens back to the days when the you could find those simple slot games in your local bar or pub. The online version is really similar –Mega Joker online contains  fruit symbols; lemons, oranges, plums, cherries, watermelons, bells and bars; simple sound effects and of course, our friend the Joker.

We think players new and old will enjoy this slot, and with the added excitement of the progressive jackpot, it’s well worth taking for a spin. If you fancy trying a similar game, look for the classic slots Jackpot 6000 and Jackpot Jester 50,000 too.

Find theMega Joker slot game under “casino” and “slots” at EuroLotto.com. Lots of luck!

Joker Millions Jackpot Winner

At EuroLotto we love it when a player wins big!  We are so excited to announce that Kim, a Norwegian player from Oslo hit the jackpot on one of our favourite instant wins Joker Millions!

The Joker Millions slot game, created by the talented folks at “Yggdrasil Gaming” is  still pretty new, and it’s the first time the big jackpot has been hit.

Kim won the epic €720,127.50 jackpot on Tuesday afternoon (15th September 2015) just 1 hour after depositing and playing on his mobile phone.

The lucky winner said: “It has not quite dawned on me yet, and I am certainly a little shaky to hear the bank balance once money is in my account, I’ll buy a new car, and then invest in an apartment eventually. My partner loves shopping, so she will certainly spend a few hundred thousand on that as well”

This is how he got lucky:

  • Deposited €30 via his mobile
  • Started playing Twin Spin…
  • Deposited another €20 and made his 2nd attempt
  • Decided to make it 3rd time lucky and deposited a further €30
  • Started playing Joker Millions…
  • Won €375 with a €2.50 bet
  • And hour in, and he won the jackpot of €720,127.50

So it was really  a case of 3rd time lucky, landing him over 6.5 million in his native Norwegian Kroner!
