Record Jackpots

Thunderball held its first draw on 12 June 1999. Then the lottery's format implied a single weekly draw on Saturday, narrower guess range of 1 to 34 Thunderball numbers, the smaller jackpot of £250,000 and no prizes for matching one number. Starting from 9 May 2010 the game evolved into the new format. The operator introduced new prize categories and increased the grand prize to £500,000. In this way, it hiked the overall winning chances somewhat decreasing the grand prize winning odds. Still, this lotto game is still attracting more and more players from the United Kingdom and other countries around the globe.
