These changes actually make the EuroMillions jackpot 50% harder to win! ("it's only 2 extra little balls, right...")

The stated reason is to create more rollovers. An extra draw a week makes them build up quicker, and making it harder to win makes them roll up bigger.

And big prizes sell more tickets.

But when you already got rollovers over 100 million - is this really such a good change..?

I'd be happier seeing more winners, not less!

    Well, noticed that an American resident can purchase one of these tickets via LotteryPost.com's link.  I have a couple of questions therefore:

    - How much is each ticket is U.S. dollars?

    - Would I be required to split the jackpot of my sole winning ticket with the purchasing agent of my ticket who resides  in Europe?

    - What percentage would I be required to pay to the European Country of which the proxy bought my ticket and also what percentage would I be required to pay to my America Country and State of Illinois of which I have been a years-long term resident in?  (the purchase website doesn't answer these obvious questions)

    Having several millions of dollars in my financial accounts means receiving several valuable services each day!

      Probably the best way to get answers is to PM Todd.

        As a US citizen, you are not immune to income taxes, just because the money is "earned" in a different country.  It's illegal to hide money offshore if you are benefiting from it in any way while living in the USA.

        As for the other questions, I'd recommending using the contact link on their web site to ask those specific questions.  The one thing I can tell you is that I am confident that they are legitimately getting real lottery tickets, and I know for a fact that they recently had a $250,000 Mega Millions winner (in the past month).  The person got their ticket and their prize.

              The following statement is from the Powerball website:

              "Any Internet lottery site that purports to sell Powerball tickets, or “shares” of Powerball tickets to purchasers or to run a “service” for you, is operating illegally.

                I don't think there is any law against buying a ticket for someone in exchange for a fee. If there was, I doubt it will hold up in court.

                      Could you copy and paste something about the Grand Canyon next?

                      I was thinking about visiting there someday.

                      Thanks ever so much.

                            nice qualifications. I guess that means he's never wrong or he would never try to tilt anything in his favor. People with nice qualifications are never wrong or biased right?

                              People with nice qualifications are right more often than people with no qualifications.
