Those crazy Euro folk have decided it’s time for another shake-up to the popular EuroMillions game. Starting with the draw on Tuesday 27th September 2016, these will be the latest changes to the game:-
- Ticket price will increase from €2 to €2.50 (£2 to £2.50 in the UK)
- An extra Lucky Star ball will be added
- The odds of winning the jackpot will go from 1-in-116 million to 1-in-140 million
- Jackpots will increase, now starting at €17M and will roll over more often
The jackpot cap still remains at €190M however, so this could reduce the maximum length of time before a jackpot is won. Roll down draws could also be slightly more frequent as a result.

There will also be some local country based changes. The UK will be adding an extra guaranteed £1M prize to the add-on UK Millionaire Maker game per draw. Whilst Ireland will be adding a raffle with 10 guaranteed prizes of €5,000 per draw.
To launch the game changes there will be a guaranteed €130m Superdraw jackpot on the 30th September (the Friday draw).
