The EuroJackpot has a fairly sizeable rollover cap in place. The jackpot can reach a maximum of €90 million. If the jackpot remains unwon additional funds will be added to the lower tier prize also to a maximum of €90 million. Eurojackpot originally had a rollover cap in addition to the jackpot cap. The lottery could only every rollover a maximum of 12 times. On the 25th of March, 2016, the second-biggest jackpot record was broken after an enormous prize of €76,766,891.00 was won.
