It has been reported recently that the administrators of the British National Lottery, Camelot, are considering some exciting changes to the Lotto draw.
Last year the European lottery brought in the Millionaire Raffle. This gives each United Kingdom player of the lottery a unique number and each number is entered into a raffle entirely separate from the lottery itself. Twice a week, alongside the lottery drawing, one number is selected to win £1 million.
The Lotto draw in the British National Lottery is now looking into the idea of a similar scheme. It seems likely there will be a raffle much like the successful Euromillions version but with 20 prizes of £100,000 awarded with each draw.
In addition to this, it is rumoured the Lotto jackpots might increase by £1 million and other prizes may be available or increased. At the same time, the chances of winning a prize in the Lotto can only increase.
On the downside, the price of each ticket may increase to as much as £2 – in line with the Euromillions lottery.
It has to be stressed that these ideas may well change before they are implemented as they seem only to be proposals at the moment but nonetheless it can only increase the excitement generated by the British National Lottery.
