The enterprise succeeds, but only after 7 years of attempts. And who knows if back in 2005 the States that started the project together in 2012, including Italy together with Germany, Finland, Denmark, Estonia, Holland and Slovenia, would have ever imagined the success that the game would have been able to achieve in the last decade? Today Eurojackpot, 10 years after its birth, is renewed by presenting one to the public even more engaging formula than in the past with the aim, therefore, of consolidating the success achieved over the years and above all of trying to give millionaire jackpots to many other European families.
