Mega Jackpot to Launch Tuesday EuroMillions

Mega Jackpot to Launch Tuesday EuroMillions

Further to our previous news that a second weekly EuroMillions draw will take place from Tuesday 10 May, 2011, we are delighted to tell you that the first ever Tuesday EuroMillions game will boast a Mega Jackpot worth €100,000,000, which will be around £85 million for players in the UK. Not only will this Mega Jackpot give EuroMillions fans a chance to win big money (as do all Mega Jackpot draws) it will also ensure that the new Tuesday EuroMillions game gets off to the best possible start.

Scheduling a Mega Jackpot for the first ever Tuesday EuroMillions draw is a very smart move by the lottery organisers. Mega Jackpots, which give players the chance to win €100 million for as the paltry cost of a single EuroMillions ticket, always garner plenty of attention from the media, so by making sure that the first Tuesday EuroMillions draw offers such a jackpot it is also a certainty that the event will get lots of media coverage. That will, in turn, give players all the encouragement they need to have a go at playing EuroMillions on a Tuesday, and of course the hope is that such players will continue to participate in the game on a twice-weekly basis.

The Mega Jackpot on Tuesday 10 May will be the first in a EuroMillions game which has more Lucky Stars and 13 prize tiers instead of 12, and that’s because the first Tuesday EuroMillions draw brings with it a few new rules. We discussed these in our previous news item (see EuroMillions to Add Tuesday Draw) but the concise version is that the jackpot will be a little more difficult to win whilst the odds of any ticket winning any prize at all will improve to a very generous 1 in 13.

We will bring you more information about the first ever Tiesday EuroMillions draw nearer the time, but right now there is a €15 million (around £13 million) EuroMillions jackpot to play for this Friday. Buy your lottery tickets here and you could be celebrating a multi-million win all weekend! Good luck!
