The wicked witch of the west is increasing the price of a ticket and increasing the star (ball) pool. However, other news in the Land of Euro is the jackpot is capped for four draws (an increase and seems like quite a few) at about 157m and if not won rolled down to be shared. Also, a lot of people factor in those second tier prizes and this has better odds. High jackpots with numerous rollovers seem to be the norm when changes are made and can't say I like it.
The cost of playing Euromillions is to increase to £2.50 a line.
In addition, players must choose from an extra number under changes that will decrease the odds of winning the jackpot but promise bigger prizes and double the number of UK millionaires.
Camelot, the UK National Lottery operator, one of the 10 operators of the European-wide game, announced the price of a line will go up by 50p to £2.50 from September to "reflect all of the community-wide and UK-only enhancements" and up to Euros 2.50 elsewhere.
There have been a stunning 9 UK EuroMillions jackpot winners in the past 12 months.
We all get a lot out of lotteries!
