The EuroMillions Lottery announced that it would change the rules of draws and price of tickets. First of all, any ticket of the lottery will cost 2.50 euros in Europe and 2.50 pounds in the United Kingdom. In addition, the owners of the lottery have decided to increase the amount of Lucky Stars numbers from eleven to twelve, decreasing the probability of hitting the jackpot.
To compensate for such changes that are extremely unprofitable for fans of lotteries, the new promotions have been added. In particular, draws of 100 million pounds will be provided. In addition, the European Millionaire Maker series will be launched. The organizers of the EuroMillions Lottery have promised to create 25 millionaires at the end of October.
The EuroMillions Lottery covers nine European countries such as the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, and Switzerland. It has been operating since February 13, 2004. Since that time, it has been able to make over 1,250 millionaires solely in the United Kingdom.
The changes in costs of tickets have resulted in an increase in the size of jackpots. For example, the jackpot has been raised to 14 million pounds.
Camelot UK, which is an operator of the UK National Lottery, has decided to increase the number of millionaires. Over two hundred lucky gamblers will be able to earn their first million pounds with the help of lotteries.
According to the administration of Camelot UK, 95% of money obtained from selling tickets of the National Lottery is either returned to winners directly or is used for social needs.
The rules of the lottery will be upgraded on September 24. As for the first draw, it will take place on September 27. A life-changing jackpot of 100 million pounds is supposed to be drawn on September 30, 2016.
