What is a Double Jackpot feature?
The DoubleJackpot feature allows players to go for twice the official lottery jackpot.

You are to pick 5 numbers plus 2 star numbers. You can do this manually by tapping on “Pick Your Own Numbers.”

With your chosen numbers, you then choose your draw date to either Tuesday or Friday or both and then place your bet.
Your chosen combination numbers are required to match on the official EuroMillions draw which is the jackpot prize. However, if you missed the jackpot prize, there are several cash prizes to be won for those who match even just 2 numbers.
There is no cap on the jackpot amount and it will only keep on increasing. To explain this, if the ceiling jackpot will reach €200 million (approx. ₹1,570 Crores), five more draws will take place and then the jackpot will go back to it’s default prize €17 million (approx. ₹130 Crores) wherein the cap gradually increase by €10 million (approx. ₹80 Crores) The “cap” will go over until it reaches the maximum jackpot cap to €250 MILLION (approx. ₹1,970 Crores).
