An Historical Look at Christmas EuroMillions Jackpots

This Christmas everyone has been talking about the biggest Christmas EuroMillions jackpot of all time and that got me thinking about the top prizes of the past that have been available for the Christmas draw. The EuroMillions is in its 14th year now, and that’s a lot of jackpots so we’re taking a look back at the Jackpots of Christmases past with ten years of festive prizes!

23rd December 2016 – €17,000,000

Last Christmas we did not give the EuroMillions our heart, because it didn’t give us a big jackpot. The 23rd December draw, the closet to Christmas Day was a base jackpot, but there was a €61,000,000 winner on the 20th December draw.

Friday 25th December 2015 – &euro:25,000,000

The 2015 jackpot was a single rollover with the draw taking place on Christmas Day, but there was no winner and it rolled over again.

Friday 26th December 2014 – €25,000,000

2014 also brought a rollover for the festive draw, taking place on Boxing Day.

Tuesday 24th December 2013 – &euro75,000,000

Now this Christmas Eve draw really was one to remember, a massive rollover worth almost €75,000,000, but it didn’t find a winner.

Tuesday 25th December 2012 – €17,000,000

It was base jackpot for the Christmas Day draw back in 2012, and it did not find a winner either.

Friday 23rd December 2011 – €30,000,000

Back in 2011 Christmas brought a rollover draw but with no winner it rolled on to the New Year.

Friday 24th December 2010 – €19,000,000

On Christmas Eve 2010 it was a rollover draw, and while the jackpot was just €19,000,000, it was won by a single player from Belgium.

Friday 25th December 2009 – €15,000,000

Back in 2009 the draw fell on Christmas Day and only offered a standard jackpot to players.

Friday 26th December 2008 – €26,000,000

In 2008, ten years ago there was a top prize worth more than €26,000,000 for the Boxing Day draw, but no jackpot winners.

So that’s ten years, and this is indeed the biggest festive jackpot ever. However, as we see in that ten years only one Christmas jackpot has been won too!
