13 Spot the person wanting a price increase…

14 But done right….brands can command a premium price

15 Against a backdrop of the need for growth, UK players felt nobody ever won in the UK Youre not just up against the UK but the whole of Europe Nobody ever wins in the UK EuroMillions is that game that is run somewhere in Europe, and all the money goes to good causes there

16 Our objectives were two-fold Drive further brand growth and therefore deliver greater returns for Good Causes Overcome UK resistance to EuroMillions and reward players with more of a UK winning experience

17 The strategy…. Increase the price of the game by 33% to £2 Introduce the UK Millionaire Raffle….. £1m prize guaranteed each and every week in the UK on top of the chance to win big jackpots Funded by the increase in price raised by the additional 50p All players automatically entered for every line they play

18 Excite Guaranteed UK Millionaire Led by Above the Line Inform Dont just see the 50p as a price hike Retailers and Below the Line Integrate Price rise linked to the benefit of the millionaire raffle Telling the story…

19 Campaign message This Friday, the EuroMillions jackpot is a massive £82m. EuroMillions is now £2 and includes the new Millionaire Raffle where every week, one lucky UK player will win £1m – guaranteed.
