When they launched EuroMillions, people stopped playing the national lotto.
EM: 5/50 + 2/9 for 2 EUR
LO: 6+R/42 for 0.50 EUR
The payouts for the lotto were good in the small prices and I won relatively often.
It was affordable, for a cup of coffee in the center I would play 4 lines.
1 line of EM = 4 lines of Lotto
A few years later:
EM: 5/50 + 2/11 for 2 EUR
LO: 6+F/45 for 1 EUR
Lotto payouts went down, the chances to win money got less. The chances to win any price went up by 1 percent, but the payouts suck. Your chances diminished by 50%, as the price doubled. +1% -50% = around 49% worse?
The better game was killed.
