  • It’s about to get even harder to win EuroMillions - and more expensive

    The EuroMillions lottery is about to get even more expensive for Brits - and it’s going to be even more impossible to win the jackpot. The price increase comes despite the fact that participation dropped by a staggering 40% the last time Camelot raised their prices for the National Lottery.

Doepfner said he saw Britain moving towards a "more free market-oriented model, while Europe is step by step transforming into a transfer union" where funds were being channelled from successful states to the struggling ones.
