Greece Powerball Review

Greece Powerball Review

Did you know that Greece has a Powerball game of its own? Greece Powerball is the unofficial title of Joker – a draw-style lottery that belongs to the national OPAP portfolio.

The Greek Joker came into existence in 1997. There’s a reason why it’s been dubbed Greece Powerball – the game follows a very similar draw style, and tremendous rewards also characterize it.

Joker (Tzoker in Greece) started as a game that “promises winnings beyond imagination.” In a way, it has accomplished the goal. Out of all lotteries in the Mediterranean country, this is the one that produces the most significant rewards for players. Whenever the Tzoker jackpot reaches a new high, swarms of people come to OPAP retail agencies to buy a ticket in hopes of changing their life.

Since it came into existence, the game has handed out more than one billion euros in jackpots. More than 1.5 billion euro was distributed among the lower prize tier winners.

The game has produced at least 600 millionaires so far, and if you want to be the next in line, you’ll need to acquaint yourself with the rules of playing.

How to Play Greece Powerball

Greece Powerball drawings take place two times per week – on Thursday and Sunday.

For a chance to win the jackpot, choose five numbers in the range from one to 45 and a Tzoker additional number from one to 20. If you don’t have the numbers that you like to play, opt for the quick pick possibility at the OPAP retail venue.

Drawings are held at 10:10 p.m. Eastern European Time (EET), and ticket sales close at about 9:30 p.m. on the night of the draw.

Tickets for Joker are very affordable – yet another reason why the game has gained so much popularity. A single entry costs 0.50 euros. Apart from submitting a standard entry, however, you can also choose one of the alternative gameplay options.

System play allows you to choose more numbers than the ones necessary for winning. While a system entry is more expensive, it increases the odds of winning some price, and it also enables the eventual claiming of multiple prizes.

The Greek Tzoker has a full development system, standard development system, and permutation system play. The official OPAP website does a pretty good job of explaining the differences between the different gameplay methods.

Players can also decide to acquire tickets for several consecutive drawings so that they don’t have to visit an agency every single time.

Buying Greece Powerball tickets is an easy task. These are available at all of the OPAP authorized venues throughout Greece. Joker online ticket buying is also available. An online portal and a mobile app have been developed to allow players to get digital tickets.

Some international online lottery agencies may also carry Joker due to the popularity of the game across Europe and in other parts of the world. If you don’t live in Greece, do check for such online opportunities.

There are no restrictions in terms of player nationality, as long as legal age requirements are met.

Greece Powerball Prizes and Payouts

Greek Powerball has a minimum guaranteed jackpot of 600,000 euros. You have to match the five main numbers and the Tzoker number for the respective drawing to win the jackpot. If there’s no winner, the sum will roll over towards the next edition of the game. Over the years, Tzoker has produced some high jackpots exceeding several million euros each.

The largest jackpot in the history of the game was 19.3 million euros. Recently, several similarly impressive jackpots have fallen. In 2018, a prize of 18.2 million euros was handed out to one lucky winner.

The odds of winning the top prize in Joker are one in 24,435,180. Since these odds aren’t the most favorable ones out there, players are being offered excellent payouts in the event of getting lucky.

Apart from the jackpot, the Greek Powerball offers seven additional prize tiers.

The second prize is handed to those who match the five main numbers correctly. It represents 3.85 percent of the funds generated through ticket sales. This amount is divided equally among all players who have the correct numerical combination.

Those who match four of the main numbers and the Tzoker number will win 2,500 euros. The smallest prize belongs to those who get two numbers correct and its value is 1.5 euro. The odds of getting two Joker numbers right are one in 53.

Greece Powerball has overall odds of winning a prize of one in 34.1.

Keep in mind that lottery prizes in Greece are subjected to income taxation. Players who win between 100 and 500 euro will need to pay a 15 percent income tax. For awards that exceed 500 euro, the income tax goes up to 20 percent.
