Hungary Players Get a Chance at the EuroJackpot

Hungary's National Tax and Customs Authority (NAV) is allowing the Hungarian National Lottery (Szerencsejáték Zrt) to bring the EuroJackpot game to Hungary.

The EuroJackpot is an international game played in numerous European countries. Up until now lotto-loving punters in Hungary have been prohibited from playing the game, but tickets will be available from lottery outlets all over the country as from Saturday.

EuroJackpot jackpots start at €15 million. Drawings are held once each week on Fridays. The next drawing is on Friday, October 3, 2014. The estimated jackpot is €16 million. Hungarian players will have to sit that one out, but the following week they will be able to cross their fingers along with players in the other 16 participating countries.
