As EuroMillions online lottery players, you will undoubtedly already know that the world’s favourite lottery, the EuroMillions is set to attract even more players, due to the upcoming changes scheduled to take place from the 24 September 2016.
Here’s a brief summary of the EuroMillions changes that effect you at PlayHugeLottos.com when they come into effect:
- A special event Superdraw will take place on the 30th September 2016 with the guaranteed jackpot increasing from €100 million to €130 million.
- The Lucky Stars will increases from 11 to 12.
- Bigger rolling jackpots
- Starting jackpots to increase from €15 million to €17 million
On Tuesday 27th September 2016, several exciting changes to EuroMillions will take place, and it’s all designed to create exciting prizes and even more fun for players of Europe’s biggest and most popular euro lotto game.
If there’s one lottery draw that online lottery players at PlayHugeLottos.com have waited for year after year, it’s the EuroMillions Superdraw!
This year, online lottery players are going to be totally spoilt with an extraordinary special Superdraw Even draw that will take place on Friday, 30th September, 2016, offering a guaranteed €130 million!
The guaranteed starting jackpot will rise from €15 million to €17 million (from £12 million to approximately £14 million).
Number format changes
Players will still pick five main numbers from 1 to 50, but will now select two Lucky Stars from a pool of 12 instead of 11. This will lengthen the odds of winning the jackpot, but will help create even larger top prizes once the changes are put into effect.
Changes to the Lucky Star numbers, will see bigger rolling EuroMillions lottery jackpots. This will mean that, as with the American lotteries that underwent changes, EuroMillions lottery players will also see twice as many jackpots worth more than £50 million throughout the year.
Currently EuroMillions lottery players are given the option of choosing 5 main numbers between 1 and 50, and 2 Lucky Star numbers between 1 and 11; following the implementation of EuroMillions changes in September, players will have the option of selecting their Lucky Star picks between 1 and 12.
More prizes, more millionaires
While on the face of it, the changes to the EuroMillions lottery may not seem advantageous to lottery players, in fact the opposite is true - by adjusting the price of tickets and the lucky number options available, the EuroMillions will be able to offer bigger prizes to its players, and more millionaire-making opportunities.
Thanks to the proposed implementations, the new starting EuroMillions jackpot will be set at £14 million, and the number of jackpots over £50 million is set to more than double.
Sally Cowdry, Consumer and Retail Director at Camelot, said, "EuroMillions has always captured the UK public's imagination with its exhilarating jackpots and numerous multimillion-pound winners - boosting returns to Good Causes in the process.
