You may know what your favourite lottery is, you may even have a favourite set of lucky numbers to play! But did you know some of the fascinating ways those lotteries rose to fame? How did they even start? Let’s find out in our latest ATBL update!





When did it start?

 EuroMillions was launched on 7th February 2004 through a joint effort by the United Kingdom, Spain, and France. The first draw was held on 13th February 2004 in little ol’ Paris.


Who makes up the EuroMillions?

Nine separate jurisdictions make up EuroMillions. The funds used are collected from each participating country. These are the UK, Spain, France, Portugal, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Ireland, and Luxembourg.


Past Winners!

2019 was a great year for EuroMillions players, with 14 record jackpots claimed and over 200 millionaires made.

  • On Tuesday 19th February 2019 a family syndicate from County Dublin won the biggest ever lottery prize claimed in Ireland, totalling €175 million

  • On Tuesday 8th October 2019 one lucky individual in the UK won the country’s biggest EuroMillions jackpot ever, worth a whopping £170 million.




What is Powerball?

Powerball is an American lottery played by 45 US states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The minimum jackpot offered is $40 Million and will rollover until the jackpot is won. Powerball is a unique lottery because it allows winnings by matching just a single number!


When did it start?

Powerball has a pretty rich history. First started in 1987 under the name “Lotto America” the name was changed in 1992 over to Powerball by the Multi-State Lottery Association, (or “MUSL” for short). Powerball is the first game in history to use two lottery drums to pick the winning numbers!


The Big Winners!

Powerball has a world record for the biggest jackpot in history. Take a look!

  • On 27th March 2019, a lucky man in Wisconsin won the third-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history! $768.4 million was given to the Powerball jackpot winner.

  • In October 2018 2 winners split a jackpot worth $687 million. One winner, a grandmother from Iowa, decided to set up a trust fund to honour the memory of her grandchild.

  • In January 2016 PowerBall set a world record jackpot of $1.5 billion. The amount was split by individuals in 3 states.




What is Thunderball?

Thunderball is a unique game that offers a guaranteed top prize of £500,000 in every draw!

With UK Thunderball, every player who matches five main numbers and the Thunderball receives a guaranteed £500,000 fixed jackpot. This game also offers pretty sweet odds of 1 in 13 of winning a prize!


When did it start?

The first Thunderball draw was held on Saturday, 12th June 1999. The draw was originally held on Saturdays before changing to include Wednesdays. On 9th May 2010, a Friday draw was also included and on 30th January a Tuesday draw was added so that players could participate Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday!
