What has happened to EuroMillions?
From Tuesday 10th May 2011 there's an extra draw on Tuesdays. There is a new lower prize level for matching two main numbers and you can now choose two Lucky Stars from 1 to 11 (instead of 1 to 9), as well as five main numbers from 1 to 50 as before.Back to top
Why have you changed EuroMillions?
Like any other business, we regularly review our products and games to ensure they continue to give players what they want — and therefore continue to ensure maximum returns to the Good Causes. These exciting changes to EuroMillions have been made specifically in response to meet player demand for even larger jackpots and even more chances to win. Introducing a Tuesday draw has brought EuroMillions in line with our other draw based games which have more than one draw a week — such as Lotto or Thunderball.Back to top
When did EuroMillions change?
The changes took effect from Saturday 7th May 2011 when tickets went on sale for the new Tuesday draw. The first EuroMillions Tuesday draw took place on Tuesday 10th May 2011.Back to top
What were the changes to EuroMillions?
The changes were as follows:
• There is now a second draw day for EuroMillions on a Tuesday; this gives players two chances a week to win a giant jackpot. • Two UK millionaires are now guaranteed every week in the UK Millionaire Raffle, one in each draw. • The Lucky Stars matrix has changed, meaning players now need to select Lucky Stars from 1 to 11 instead of 1 to 9. • There's a new minimum prize tier for matching two main numbers (Match 2+0 Stars), which will pay out an estimated £2.70.
These changes mean that there will be more winners on EuroMillions and the jackpot should roll more often. The approximate odds of winning the jackpot is 1:116.5m (previously 1:76m), but because of the new prize tier, the overall odds of winning any prize fall to only 1:13 (previously 1:24).Back to top
