EuroMillions have just announced a new Tuesday draw will be added from May this year.
This second weekly draw will be in addition to the Saturday draw. With the first draw taking place on Tuesday 10th May, and tickets going on sale Saturday 7th May.
The idea is to “make even larger jackpots and create more chances to win” say EuroMillions.
What this actually means is they are going to make the jackpot HARDER to win!
They haven’t provided the details as yet, but will also be increasing the number of Lucky Star balls! And adding a new £3 bottom prize level in an attempt to make the overall odds look better.
This disappointing change seems entirely driven by greed. As they admit, they want bigger jackpots. Because bigger jackpots get more publicity, which leads to greater ticket sales.
But don’t don’t we have enough rollovers already for EuroMillions?
The current enormous jackpot is as a result of rolling over SIX times. Is £117 Million not big enough? Does anyone really care about having a £3 bottom prize tier?
