Well I certainly will not be buying any tickets when the price goes up. Its pretty damn rare I get 3 numbers never mind anywhere near a big prize. To
be honest I'd be a bit peed off if I managed to get 5 numbers (which is a 1 in 55,491 chance by the way) to receive a measly £1000. Also raising the
3 numbers to £25, what exactly does £25 get you these days, a trip to the cinema for you and the other half and thats it spent.
To raise it to £2 a ticket is an insult. Just take a look at the odes of winning if you do not believe me.
6 numbers = 1 in 14 million
5 numbers plus bonus = 1 in 2,330,636
5 numbers = 1 in 55,491
4 numbers = 1 in 1032
3 numbers = 1 in 56.7
I guess my mum was right, the Lottery is nothing more than an Idiot tax.
