Euromillions.com opens lottery to citizens of the world
5 Dec 2012
Prior to the launch of the website, Euromillions lottery tickets were only available for in person purchase in any of the 9 participating European countries. During this time, the lottery grew in popularity and prize sums increased rapidly. To increase the pool of players and the prize sums, Euromillions.com was created.
The website offers lottery ticket purchase to qualified players anywhere in the world and conveniently deposits winnings into a player’s bank account. This represents a marked break from traditional methods of playing lotteries, when a player would have to collect winnings in person. No more pesky trips to Europe. Then again, after winning a lottery trips to Europe may not be so pesky anymore.
Additionally, purchasing tickets online offers a degree of security that could not be conferred with physical tickets. A physical ticket added the risk of suspicious persons finding and redeeming a player’s ticket. Euromillions.com avoids this by connecting a virtual ticket to its purchaser. These feature will certainly attract players who couldn’t be bothered with the hassle of traditional lotteries.
The convenience that Euromillions.com provides only sweetens the deal for lottery players. With jackpots that can reach €190 million and a generous prize structure with 13 categories, there is huge potential to make your money back and then some. For example, in August 2012, Adrian and Gillian Bayford of Haverhill, Suffolk won a maximum jackpot that translated into £148,656,000. Though few win such large prizes, the other categories of winnings offer much better odds, with the odds in the lowest category being 1 in 23.
Euromillions.com is laid it out in an easy to follow format that walks players through 4 easy steps to purchase a ticket. It also serves as an outlet for Euromillions related stories and keeps players up to date on the lottery drawings and news. By streamlining the process, the website will increase the number of players and also the prize sums.
Players are rushing to join in this fantastic lottery, which has ballooned beyond Europe. The potential for huge winnings grow with the reach of the lottery and are now unbound with a worldwide reach, thanks to Euromillions.com.
