That's right, beginning on the 10th May 2011 the Euro Millions will be making some big changes to allow for larger prizes and increase the number of winners each week.
MORE DRAWS: Beginning May 10th, draws will be held TWICE a week on Tuesday's and Fridays.
MORE ROLLOVERS: 'Lucky Stars' number selections will increase from 1 to 9 to numbers from 1 to 11 to create even more rollovers.
MORE PRIZES: A new 13th Prize Tier will be added for matching just 2 main numbers!, this means even more chances to win a cash tax-free prize!.
Now Thirteen Ways to Win
There are now 13 different levels of EuroMillions Lottery prize categories, based on the amount of right numbers matched.
As a result of this division into twelve prize categories, the odds of winning a prize in any given draw are even better.
The Euro Millions Lottery is what they call a 'rolling jackpot lottery', meaning that if the the grand prize jackpot is not won, it is then 'rolled - over'
and added to the next week's jackpot. If the top jackpot prize keeps rolling over week after week and is still not won on the twelfth week draw, the grand prize is 'rolled - down' and distributed between the players
in the second level, or tier. Just imagine how big the jackpot will be, and the payout is guaranteed!
Euro Millions Support Good Causes
A large portion of the revenue gathered by the EuroMillions Lottery goes toward the funding of 'Good Causes' in all of the official participating member countries, giving back to the communities, funding local activities and local charities.
