About Thunderball

The Thunderball lottery is one of the most popular lotteries in the world. It was first introduced in 1964 and has continued to grow in popularity over the years. The game is played using a random number generator, which selects five numbers from 1 to 34, and one additional number, known as the Thunderball number, from 1 to 14. Players can win various prizes depending on how many numbers they match, with the jackpot being won by matching all six numbers.

The history of the Thunderball lottery is fascinating. The game was created by John Schlesinger, who was inspired by the Italian lottery Totocalcio.

Over the years, the Thunderball game has undergone several changes. The most notable change was in 2000, when the number of balls increased from 39 to 49. This made it more difficult to win the jackpot, but also increased the size of the prizes. In addition, the Thunderball number was changed from 9 to 14 in 2013.
