Eurojackpot oder Euromillions – wo gewinnt man mehr?

Das große Stück vom Glück ist im Idealfall nur einige Zahlen weit entfernt. Schon seit vielen Jahren hoffen zahlreiche Spieler auf der ganzen Welt, bei Lotterien so richtig abzuräumen. Es muss ja nicht immer der ganz große Jackpot sein. Vielleicht reicht es ja sogar schon, den nächsten Familienurlaub zu finanzieren oder die gröbsten Verbindlichkeiten loszuwerden. Lange Zeit war das klassische 6 aus 49 mit seinen zwei Ziehungen pro Woche – jeweils samstags uns mittwochs – in Deutschland das Maß aller Dinge. Doch seit einigen Jahren haben sich zwei weitere Lotterien still und heimlich in den Fokus gespielt: der Eurojackpot und die Euromillions. Beide Lotterien ähneln sich nicht nur im Namen sehr, sondern weisen auch gemeinsame Schnittmengen beim Spielen auf. Doch wo hat der Spieler die größeren Gewinnchancen? Und wo ist mehr Geld zu holen? Der folgende Text klärt ein wenig auf.

Der Eurojackpot

Der Eurojackpot ist eine der beiden sehr bekannten Lotterien. Spieler aus vielen Ländern Europas können an dieser Lotterie teilnehmen. Und es ist in der Tat schon passiert, dass riesengroße Jackpots geknackt wurden. Dabei handelte es sich sowohl um einzelne Gewinner als auch um Tippgemeinschaften, die nach der Ziehung der Zahlen anstoßen konnten und sich wohl keine Sorgen mehr um ihre Finanzen machen müssen.

Eurojackpot

Wie spielt man den Eurojackpot?

Den Eurojackpot zu spielen, ist ganz einfach. Der Spieler wählt aus einem Pool von 50 Zahlen seine fünf persönlichen Glückszahlen aus. Doch damit nicht genug: Zusätzlich zu den fünf Glückszahlen müssen die Spieler auch noch zwei Zusatzzahlen auswählen. Hierbei gilt es, aus einem Pool von zehn Zahlen seine Auswahl zu treffen. Wer den Jackpot abräumen möchte, der muss demzufolge nicht nur die fünf richtigen Glückszahlen, sondern auch noch zusätzlich die beiden richtigen Zusatzzahlen getippt haben. Nur dann landet man in der höchsten Gewinnklasse. Das heißt aber nicht, dass die anderen Gewinnklassen nichts zu bieten hätten. Im Gegenteil. Auch dort lassen sich teilweise sehr hohe Gewinne einfahren, mit denen eventuelle Finanzsorgen der Vergangenheit angehören dürften.

Wie hoch sind die Jackpots?

Beim Eurojackpot gibt es einen Minimum- und einen Maximum-Jackpot. Der Mindestbetrag, der im Jackpot liegt, beträgt satte zehn Millionen Euro. Das maximale Volumen des Jackpots liegt bei 90 Millionen Euro. Bislang ist es einem Spieler aus Tschechien sogar gelungen, diesen Jackpot zu knacken. Der glückliche Gewinner tippte seinerzeit im Mai 2015 die richtigen Zahlenkombinationen.

Wann finden die Ziehungen statt?

Beim Eurojackpot gibt es nur eine einzige Ziehung pro Woche. Diese findet jeweils freitags im finnischen Helsinki statt. Es gibt allerdings Gerüchte, nach denen es eventuell auch einmal eine zweite Ziehung pro Woche geben könnte, da sich der Eurojackpot immer größerer Beliebtheit erfreut.

Die Euromillions

Die Euromillions sind dem Eurojackpot sehr ähnlich. Auch hier hat es bereits satte Millionengewinne gegeben, über die sich die Kunden freuen durften. Allerdings weisen die Euromillions im Vergleich zum Eurojackpot einige Unterschiede auf.

Euromillions

Wie spielt man Euromillions?

Wie auch beim Eurojackpot wählt man aus einem Pool von 5 Zahlen die fünf Zahlen aus, von denen man meint, dass sie den Weg zum großen Glück ebnen können. Auch müssen bei den Euromillions zwei Zusatzzahlen gezogen werden. Diese heißen dort aber nicht einfach Zusatzzahlen, sondern Sternzahlen. Außerdem muss der Kunde aus zwölf Sternzahlen wählen, was die Auswahl im Vergleich zum Eurojackpot ein wenig schwieriger gestaltet. Auch hier gilt: Nur Spieler, die sowohl fünf richtige Glückszahlen als auch die beiden korrekten Sternzahlen getippt haben, gewinnen den Jackpot.

Wie hoch sind die Jackpots?

Die Höhe des Jackpots ist ein weiterer Unterschied im Vergleich zum Eurojackpot. Der minimale Jackpot liegt bei 17 Millionen Euro, der maximale Jackpot kann auf bis zu 190 Millionen Euro anwachsen.

Wann finden die Ziehungen statt?

Hierbei kommt es zu einem weiteren Unterschied zwischen Eurojackpot und Euromillions. Denn bei den Euromillions gibt es zwei Ziehungen pro Woche. Diese finden jeweils dienstags und freitags um 21.30 Uhr statt. Die Ziehungen werden auch nicht in Finnland abgehalten, sondern in der französischen Hauptstadt Paris.

Welche Lotterie ist besser und verspricht mehr Gewinne?

Diese Frage kann man pauschal überhaupt nicht beantworten. Dafür gibt es unterschiedliche Gründe und Faktoren. Jeder hat hier seine eigene Meinung. Auf Seiten wie https://www.lottospielen24.org/ findet man mit Sicherheit noch mehr Daten zu dem Thema. Bemüht man einzig Statistik und Mathematik, dann ergeben sich beim Eurojackpot größere Gewinnchancen. Die Chancen auf einen Jackpot liegen bei Eurojackpot bei 1 zu 95.344.200, während für den Jackpot bei den Euromillions ein Jackpot-Gewinn mit einer Wahrscheinlichkeit von 1 zu 139.838.160 angegeben wird. Es gibt auch Spieler, die dagegen argumentieren, da es bei den Euromillions immerhin zwei Ziehungen pro Woche gibt, während die Glückszahlen beim Eurojackpot nur einmal pro Woche gezogen werden.

Im Grunde genommen spielt es aber gar nicht einmal so sehr eine große Rolle, wie hoch die Chancen in der jeweiligen Lotterie sind, da es schließlich noch immer um ein Glücksspiel handelt. Selbst, wenn die Mathematik dem Eurojackpot einen Vorsprung einräumt, ist dies noch lange keine Garantie für einen Gewinn. Wenn Kunden beide Lotterien gleich oft spielen, kann es genauso gut passieren, dass sie den Jackpot – wenn überhaupt – bei den Euromillions gewinnen.

Fazit: Kein Favorit erkennbar

Strenggenommen kann man bei den Euromillions mehr abräumen, da sowohl Minimal- als auch Maximal-Jackpot höher sind, als dies beim Eurojackpot der Fall ist. Allerdings ist auch das keine Garantie dafür, dass man diese Summen auch gewinnt. Beide Lotterien sind sich sehr ähnlich, beide haben Vor- und Nachteile. Wer auf der Suche nach dem großen Glück und Jackpot ist, der wird vielleicht sogar beide Lotterien parallel spielen, wenn es sein finanzieller Spielraum zulässt. Insgesamt ist es schwer, einen klaren Favoriten zu benennen, denn Lotterien sind und bleiben schließlich Glücksspiele.

Big Brain Academy – Prepare for Thinking

Nintendo shows again and again with success that on the screen not only blood has to inject. Brain chasing games are also very popular, as the two Dr. Kawashima parts show. The Big Brain Academy, released a year ago for the Nintendo DS, seamlessly followed these successes.

Watched Wii owners so far at the brain marathon in the tube, now the game was implemented under the name Big Brain Academy for Wii for the new console. Whether the implementation and the game principle transferred from the handheld to the console loss-free transfer, you will learn in our review.

Headaches guaranteed

To the story of Big Brain Academy for Wii there is not much to say: There is actually no! Nevertheless, it is one of the more challenging games, as man or woman has to work the gray cells and the brain is trained. After the game has been inserted and started, you are greeted by a somewhat rustic-looking professor named Lobo, who has a few cunning sayings around his ears. At the same time, he also greeted us in the same breath as our constant companion: the FB assistant. Who now expects a racy blonde, has far missing. Instead, a female voiced from the speaker of the Wii remote, which also welcomes us. But now it can finally go. But before you can put your brain to the test, you have to first register in the office of the academy in the study book. From now on, the image of his alter ego is emblazoned on this book, in which all the results and records are stored. If you enter the Aula, you can not trust your eyes: the Miis from the Mii can run around here, which creates a sense of familiarity, and quite by the way, this Rumgewusel breathes something from a real university.

BBAcademy 1

First, the game will be explored on its own. So go to the left wing of the academy, where you find the actual “test” next to the “exercises”, with which the weight of the brain is to be determined. In the test, the mass of the brain is measured in 15 different tasks from five academic categories: vision, memoria, analysis, algebra and piracta. Not only is it difficult to understand how hard the brain is, but it also gets an individual rank depending on the performance. Finally, the test also reveals which personality the brain has! For the test itself, you select the Mii you just entered in the study book and select “TO TEST” to finally start. Before it finally starts, read the rules to the respective knowledge area, so you know what the tasks are. In “Vision”, for example, the three tasks all revolve around an accurate observation of the player.

In the first exercise, “Pictogram Hunting”, the displayed symbols must be made in a kind of “Hau den Lukas” game. The “image focus” presents only blurred, pixelated or almost concealed images, which become more and more clear in the course of time and where it is, of course, quickly to find out what is on the picture. The last exercise “Night Safari” lets the player light the dark with a flashlight. The task is to find out by which lamp most of the specimens are here. The four other categories offer similar exercises, each of which is adapted to their subject matter. After completing all the tasks from the five categories, you will learn your brain mass. Each individual area of ​​knowledge is provided with a gram number so that the final result is determined. In addition, Professor Lobo will tell you where you have been very good and where there may still be some exercise. This is where the exercises come into play, because these are the ideal way to improve or deepen their skills in certain categories or tasks. You can win a bronze, silver and gold medal in each task on each difficulty level.

Game Details

Anyone who now thinks that the potential of the game has already been exhausted has again missed, because the game even contains 3 different multiplayer games, in which the player alone can compete against the study books of the other Miis or even against other human players. The Brain Sprint, for example, is a hot race where two teams try to solve a set number of tasks as quickly as possible. With a single Wii remote, a team of up to four players can compete against a study book. For this, 4 Wii remotes are not required – as possibly assumed – and the remote control is passed on to the next player. If, on the other hand, 2 remote controls are used, two teams with up to four players can compete against each other. As soon as a team reaches the finish line, the victory starts.

In the “Brain Marathon”, a student or a team of up to eight students must try to solve as many tasks as possible without errors within a time limit. Once the time has elapsed or a single task is answered incorrectly, the brain marathon is over. In order to participate in the Brain Marathon, only one Wii Remote is required. If several students take part, they will be handed over as before. At the end of the brain marathon, the performance of the individual participants is displayed and evaluated.

Gears of War – Justified or Average Shooter

Gears Of War is finally here and we could not resist to investigate the game. We caught the German import version and report in this review, whether the hype about this game was really justified or is only an average shooter.

How everything starts

At Gears Of War, the threat comes from within the Earth. Actually, so far, everything was just a myth that strange beings lived among the great cities of the Earth. Until one day everything didn’t become real. So-called “Locust” showed their face to humanity as they came up to the surface through large earth holes. This surprise attack claimed some victims, but humans did not surrender and beat back with chemical weapons or orbital particle guns. While the survivors retreated to the Jacinto plateau, the locust also found this refuge and attacked the people there.

Marcus Fenix, the main character and title hero of Gears Of War, is in the war, but he resists commanding the command and tries to free his father, who is at the Jacinto plateau, from the catches of Locust. In vain as later on. And to all the evil, Marcus is sentenced to 40 years imprisonment for his disobedience to the army. However, soon the Locust also attack the prison and Marcus is again confronted with struggle and death.

At this point, the player intervenes in the action and takes the role of Marcus Fenix ​​in the 3d person perspective.

Well, the story appears interesting at first sight, but becomes rather boring and uninteresting in the course of the game. The characters are little illuminated and much is stereotypically staged. What the story is not capable of – inspire the player – but creates the action, because this is fantastically portrayed!

Coverage and shooting

Coverage and shooting is the survival guaranteed. This is essential in Gears Of War. Hardly any other game uses the given cover possibilities so consistently. Without protection one is an easy target and does not stay long on its feets especially in the higher levels of difficulty. In Gears Of War, the A button is without doubt the most important button on the controller, which is loaded with numerous functions. With the help of the button you go to cover, climbs over obstacles, dodges and runs ducked. There are almost all functions that are important for survival on a button, but this is by no means overstated. Also important is the X-key, which allows doors to enter, ammunition collected and guns manned. For the exact aim you have to dare a little with the head from the cover and are thus also vulnerable. With the left shoulder button, the enemy is then targeted, with the right button the balls are fired towards the opponent. However, there is also the possibility of firing blindly in one direction from the cover. The principle of coverage and shooting has not been so fantastically represented by any other game as in Gears Of War!

Self-healing and AI comrades

Unlike in many games, Gears Of War does not require any medication. The health regenerates itself as in Call of Duty 2 after a short time of itself. Thus one can concentrate undisturbed on the shooting and does not have to look for medication. If the AI comrades were to go to the ground once in the fire fight, they can be brought back to the legs by pushing the button. The AI is also self-covered or storms forward on opponents to fight with them. Annoying is that the comrades sometimes have misfits and walk around the area senselessly. While the player can give commands such as “grouping, weapon rest, or attacking”, these commands are not very useful because they are hardly implemented efficiently.

Weapon selection

The player has numerous weapons to choose from. For splatter fans, there is a handy chain saw that is integrated into a primary weapon. This weapon makes short process with the opponents. In the course of the game, there is a wide range of weapons, such as two guns, a Locust rifle, shotgun, sniper rifle, grenades, and the Hammer of the Dawn. The latter serves as a target marker for the particle orbits stationed in orbit. This weapon is used only in a few places, but it is excellent against strong opponents which can not be defeated with normal weapons. However, this weapon unfortunately works only in the open air and only for a certain duration.

Great graphics, bombastic sound

Epic Games is a real eye-catcher! Gears Of War has a gorgeous graphics. The Unreal Engine 3 delivers a real firework of effects! The player gets to see detailed playfields and characters and great animations. Especially great is a night level in the rain but also the other levels look great and varied. Filmreif are the intermediate sequences that drive the action, whereas the dramaturgical content is not always completely meaningless. Especially the German language edition lags the English much behind what the quality of the speakers concerns and the correct translation into German. Where we are at the moment of the acoustics: the sound is bombastic staged and the effects are coming out. Technically, there is at the Unreal Engine 3 what graphics and sound concerns nothing to complain about, only a few small jerkers are here and there like the end boss. The fact is that the Xbox 360 console with Gears Of War impressively shows what power is in it.

Xbox Live and Multiplayer

In addition to the story mode, there is also a multiplay mode to play. The CoOp mode, which can be played together with a friend either online via Xbox Live, via a console in Splitscreen mode or via a system link connection to a second console. In addition to the CoOp mode, there are three other game modes for up to eight players, such as “War Zone”, which is nothing more than the mandatory Deathmatch, or “killing”, in which each team has its own leader, Player. If it is switched off by the opposing team, the round is over. The person who killed the leader will be in the next round in his own team, while the enemy leader is taken over by the best player of his squad. The last multiplayer mode is called “execution”. If you are done in it you are not immediately dead. The faster you press the A button, the faster you are already on the legs. However, the opponent can execute a death blow by crushing his head.
