The Euromillions has always been Europe's biggest lottery game for as long as any of us can remember. However, the Euro Lotto giant is set to shift up yet another gear in its attempt to bring even bigger jackpots to an already rewarding online gaming favourite. The changes don't just stop there! The Euromillions will also implement changes that will produce even more winners across the tiers! Although ticket prices will increase, albeit ever so minimally at just £2.50. However, players will reap the benefits and soon see the changes in the size of the jackpots as worth the extra few cents.
Europe's most popular game by far is undergoing an exciting makeover on 27 September 2016. Players of the Euromillions will see an increase of a lofty €2 million jump in the jackpot, rising from €15 million to €17 million.
The Euromillions cap of €190 million won't see a change, however, the number of rollovers will be limited to four. There is a good reason behind this. The idea is to up the pace and excitement of the draws as well as to distribute the prizes across more tiers. When the rollover reaches its maximum of four times, the jackpot prize will trickle down to the lower tier and shared evenly among all lucky ticket holders within the next division.
The basic rules to the game will remain the same, however, players will need to select their 2 Lucky Star numbers from a range of 1 to 12 whereas before, players were required to choose from a range of 1 to 11. That is as far as the changes go with regards to playing the game as players are still required to choose 5 main numbers from a range of 1 to 50.
Registered Cheaplottos players can look forward to a dramatic new feel to the Euromillions game. So play the game and stand a chance to win bigger than every before jackpots!
