Jersey-based lottery solutions provider Twelve40 has agreed a deal to offer the popular pan-European lottery game EuroMillions to online lottery operator Islands Lotto.

The launch will make the EuroMillions game available in the Channel Islands for the first time through Twelve40's lottery messenger service and platform.

EuroMillions is operated by ten European lotteries, with Twelve40 physically purchasing EuroMillions entries on behalf of Islands Lotto players in Austria through the National Lottery operator Austrian Lotteries.

“The EuroMillions is one of the world’s most popular lottery draws, and we are proud to be bringing it to players in the Channel Islands for the first time on Islands Lotto,” said Andy Jarrett, chief executive of Twelve40. “Our robust lottery messenger framework is capable of delivering a seamless and enjoyable gaming experience, and we are sure that players will love this new addition to the Islands Lotto website.”

Islands Lotto is licensed by the Jersey Gambling Commission and offers a wide range of instant win games and slots alongside lotteries, with at least 15 per cent of all sales going to local good causes.
