Euromillions Ticket Prices set to Rise
Last Updated: Thursday 7th July 2011, 16:11
Since the launch of the Euromillions, players in the UK have paid slightly less for tickets than those in countries that use the Euro, at the time the amount settled out to be the same but with the Euro evening out against the pound tickets for the lotto are set to rise by a third this November. This comes with a brand new draw though, the Millionaire Raffle which will give you double the chance to become a Euromillions millionaire every week
Since the launch, Euromillions tickets have cost €2 in Europe and £1.50 in the UK but this is set to change from November as Euromillions tickets rise by a third to £2.
It’s not all bad news though as some of the 50p increase will go into a new prize fund that is guaranteed to make one UK millionaire every single week from lottery tickets. The idea is that Camelot will use any spare cash generated to fund ‘Super Raffles’ with prizes of up to £20 million. The launch of the new ticket prices and new games is to be backed by a new TV advertising campaign.
The new look Euromillions will increase players excitement by giving Euromillions ticket holders two chances to win each week. Once on the main draw and again with the millionaire raffle, each player will receive a raffle entry with their tickets and the winner of this will be announced at the same time as the main Euromillions draw.
The changes come into effect from November 13th 2009 so look out for the new ad campaign coming to your television set really soon.
