Twelve40 opens up EuroMillions to Channel Islands
Citizens living in the Channel Islands will now be able to play EuroMillions for the first time after technology and platform provider Twelve40 confirmed that it will begin offering the draw in partnership with Islands Lotto.
Licensed by the Jersey Gambling Commission, Islands Lotto is an independently-run online lottery operator that offers instant win games and slots.
Islands Lotto customers will now have access to EuroMillions, with the launch to be powered via the Twelve40 lottery messenger software and facilitated on the company’s platform.
Andy Jarrett, chief executive of Twelve40, said: “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.
“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.”
In April, the UK introduced a ban on betting on the outcome of EuroMillions draws.
The ban refers to betting on non-UK EuroMillions through a statutory licence condition, bringing such draws in line with existing regulations on wagering on UK National Lottery draws.
As the Channel Islands are not part of the UK, they are exempt from the new ban.
