UK Players eye the Euro rollover jackpot
Last Updated: Friday 20th May 2011, 10:03 am
With the new Tuesday Euromillions draw, players are spoiled for choice when it comes to lottery draws. Both the UK Lotto and Euromillions are twice weekly, and there are the Lotto Plus 5 draws in between. However, everything is taking a back seat this weekend as UK players eye the Euro rollover jackpot, and the £22 million jackpot the lottery has on offer to players this evening.
With the new Euromillions rules in place, rollovers are now more likely. The lucky stars have been increased from 9 to 12 and this in turn will lengthen odds of winning the jackpot. It means that this is just the start of the big Euromillions Lottery jackpots we can come to expect in the future, which means we may see some jackpot records smashed too!
If you’re happy as long as you have a winning ticket, then you’ll be pleased with the other new addition to the lottery. Players matching two main balls now win a prize with the Euromillions, and that paid out £3.40 on Tuesday evening.
The two additions mean that while jackpots are getting bigger, overall odds of winning a prize are actually increasing. With all this considered it’s little wonder that sales of Euromillions Lottery tickets have been brisk since Tuesday’s draw, both here in the UK and across Europe too.
Will we see a winner this evening, or will the night bring another Euromillions rollover? You’ll just have to check back after the draw to catch up with the Euromillions results and news on jackpots!
