Should you decide to play Thunderball then every entry has a roughly in 29 chance of winning a prize. This draw which is based in the United Kingdom first debuted in June 1999 and has remained very popular with lottery players ever since. If you opt to play Thunderball then you will need to choose 5 numbers from a guess range between 1 and 39 and then select a further number (The Thunderball) from between 1 and 14. The Thunderball allows those who play the game to win further supplementary prizes, but is also necessary to win the jackpot. The jackpot is fixed at £500,000, although until 2010 was exactly half that amount. Indeed 2010 saw those who play Thunderball witness a plethora of positive changes to an already well loved game. Doubling the jackpot was of course a popular decision with players, as was the addition of an extra draw. Currently those who play Thunderball can get to check their tickets on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, until 2010 there was no Friday draw. To ensure the half million jackpot lottery officials added 5 numbers to the original format. All of the above showing how the UK’s Thunderball draw has adapted and yet remained a supremely popular game.
