Thunderball doubles the jackpot

Last Updated: Tuesday 23rd March 2010, 11:58 am

Thunderball Thunderball is one of the most popular UK Lotto draws and with a jackpot of £250,000 it’s little wonder. However, we have some fantastic news today that the Thunderball is to double the jackpot up to £500,000 from 9th May, 2010. It’s not just the jackpot increasing either, with more draws and more chances to win, you’d be mad not to find out about the all-new UK Lotto Thunderball draw.

You have a few weeks yet until the changes come into play so for now you can keep playing the Thunderball as normal. But from 9th May, 2010 you can play the all-new Thunderball with improved jackpots and even more draws.

From Sunday, May 9th when you play the Thunderball Lottery from the UK lotto you will be playing for a £500,000 jackpot. That’s double the current Thunderball jackpot, giving players half a million to play for.

Not just that but from the same date there will also be an extra draw every single week and that means you’ll be able to play the Thunderball Lottery three times a week, every Wednesday and Saturday night as well as the brand new Friday night Thunderball Lottery draw.

With the new Thunderball Lottery draw you’ll now be able to choose five balls from 1-39 and still the Thunderball from 1-14 but one of the best changes to the Thunderball Lottery draw is the fact that you will now win £3 for matching just the Thunderball.

Tickets for this popular UK Lotto draw will still be £1 each and you can buy Thunderball tickets and buy lotto tickets online through our pages.
