Nine Years of EuroMillions Magic
LONDON, February 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
February 13th marks the ninth anniversary since the first EuroMillions draw was held in Paris in 2004.
Over the years, the EuroMillions has yielded its fair share of headline-grabbing winners: the charitable Chris and Colin Weir, the caravanning Gillian and Adrian Bayford, and the infamous ASBO-flaunting Michael Carroll. There was even the lottery winner who decided that he or she wasn't: a £64 million winner failed to collect their winnings before their claim expired in December.
Now, as the EuroMillions enters its tenth year, it is preparing to usher in a new generation of winners, starting with the anniversary draw on February 12, 2013.
Few lotteries have gained the fan following that the EuroMillions has in recent years, and none more so in Europe. The American Powerball and MegaMillions have caused a stir from time to time, but after 800 EuroMillions tickets were sold every second last summer in England, the EuroMillions is firmly ensconced in the public imagination on this side of the pond.
To celebrate the EuroMillions' ninth year milestone, Lottoland is running a promotion giving new customers a one-time chance to try EuroMillions for free during the anniversary week. The code 'NINEYEARS' at checkout on Lottoland.com/en will entitle players to their free punt for the February 12th and 15th draws.
Importantly, a £64 million winner at Lottoland would automatically be paid their winnings into their account.
Lottoland.com offers players a legal way of placing tips on lotteries such as the EuroMillions and EuroJackpot online. Lottoland has an official licence from the UK Gambling Commission. It is fully compliant with European regulations and takes serious youth protection measures.
