Win money, be happy

Changes to the EuroMillions lottery spell good news for gamblers - jackpots have been made larger and chances to win have been increased.

Changes include the introduction of a second draw day on Tuesdays, and the expanding of the number of Lucky Stars which should mean more rollovers and more handsome-sized jackpots.

The odds of winning something will fall from one in 24 to one in 13, as the total number of prizes up for grabs every week in Europe expected to double to 4.6 million.

Dianne Thompson, chief executive of Camelot UK Lotteries, said: ‘Since we launched EuroMillions in 2004, it's grown to be the world's biggest multi-national lottery game by player population.

’It has really captured the public's imagination, creating numerous multimillion-pound winners in the UK, as well as boosting returns to the Good Causes here in the process.

’These changes will make the game even more exciting for our players - with the mega-jackpot levels our EuroMillions players love, as well great chances to win smaller prizes more often.’
