How Can I Play The EuroJackpot Lottery Online?
Anyone can play the EuroJackpot lottery online just as easily as it is played when buying tickets from a retail location. There are several online lottery ticket purchasing services that will buy your lottery tickets using agents on the ground in locations across Europe. You can use these services, for example The Lotter, to select numbers chosen by you or randomly generated by RNG software. You’ll receive a scanned copy of the actual ticket(s) from your online service. The only thing left to do is wait for the draw.
Can I Play The EuroJackpot Lottery From Outside the EU?
There are many companies that provide an online ticket purchasing service for lottery games around the world. We’ve conducted extensive research to find quality companies that deliver this service, such as The Lotter. These companies buy tickets for their customers outside the EU by visiting retail shops located within the EU. Once online ticket purchases are made, the customer then receives a scanned copy of their lottery ticket(s).
How Do I Claim My Prize If I Win?
An automated message from your online ticketing service, usually in the form of an email or SMS, will be received after the draw if you’ve won. Winning tickets of up to €2,500 are transferred instantly to customer’s designated accounts. If a win is larger than that, a player must visit the place of purchase in-person to claim their prize.
How Long Do I Have to Claim My Winnings?
Tickets purchased in different locations will have different deadlines set for claiming a prize. This can be anywhere from months to years. You’ll have to check with your retailer or online ticketing service to be sure. Don’t wait for this deadline to get closer, claim your win as soon as you are able.
How Long Will It Take To Receive My Winnings?
Tickets with a win amount of €2,500 or less have the option to be automatically transferred to a player’s bank account when tickets have been purchased online. Tickets purchased in-person can be redeemed from a retailer up to the same amount. However, larger prizes must be claimed in-person and before the expiration date. Two weeks is a safe assumption including travel time and the filing of paperwork.
Is the Lottery A Cash Payout Or Annuity Payment Structure?
The advertised jackpot for the EuroJackpot is the actual jackpot amount. There is no tax applied in the lottery so the jackpot amount advertised is exactly the amount of money awarded as a lump sum.
