Ukraine’s Jamala crowned Eurovision Champion.
This year’s Eurovision Song Contest was held in Stockholm, Sweden – and what a night it was! The song ‘1944’ scored 534 points for Ukraine, putting them on top of the table; followed by Australia with 511 points; whilst Russia (the favourite going into the competition) finished third, with 491 points.
The night produced one of the most exhilarating finals in the contests’ history. Australia, (well in the lead with the jury votes) was overturned by the public’s tele-voting, that propelled Ukraine into a 23-point lead!
Eurovision, Euro Lotteries and Casino Thrills!
When the magic was taking place on stage, EuroLotto was adding to the excitement too! We gave away 60 Free Spins to all players, for 3 top slot games in a “Eurovision bonus special”. It gave us a pretty good idea who you guys were cheering on when players showed support for a country by choosing their favourite free spins bonus:
- Ole Ole! If Spain was your superstar, you could collect 20 free Spinata Grande spins
- Or crack the case for the UK with 20 Free Spins on Holmes and the Stolen Stones
- Vote for a Swedish victory and pick up 20 free spins on Vikings Gone Wild.
Vikings Go Wild was the most popular, putting Sweden in the lead for EuroLotto fans – but then it is just a super fun game too 🙂
And whilst Jamala started living her European dream as Queen of Eurovision 2016; lucky lotto winners celebrated too! A total of € 16.5 million was distributed among 363,199 lucky winners in the EuroJackpot draw. A whopping € 19 million was shared between 2,640,882 other EuroMillions winners as well!
We hope that you enjoyed the Eurovision – and found time to have the time of your life with us at EuroLotto too.
