Dear Joshua,

New Lotto will be launching on 5th October. 

What's changing?
For draws from 5th October, new Lotto will cost £2 per line, creating bigger jackpots and a new raffle with at least 50 guaranteed winners of £20,000 in every draw. Matching 3 numbers will also now win you £25. 

Can I still play in advance?
Yes, although there will be some temporary changes to the way you can play in advance leading up to the launch of new Lotto on 5th October. 

From 11th August, the number of weeks you can play the current Lotto game in advance will reduce each week until tickets for new Lotto go on sale on 3rd October.

From 3rd October, you'll then be able to play Lotto up to eight weeks in advance as normal.

Find out more about new Lotto and playing in advance. 

Kind regards

So, they are upping it to £2 a line. But it seems to me that the raffle with every line bought with 50 winners on each draw for 20K sounds pretty good to me. Also for 3 numbers you get 25 instead of 10.

 

What are your views on this guys?

 

I don't play this draw, as I only really play the EuroMillions so it don't effect me but that raffle sounds pretty good.

2016 Won/Lost

EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

2016 Total: -£24

Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2

 

EuroMillions = £2 Line / Played: x11 [old price] 

EuroMillions = £2.50 Line / Played: x0

UK Lotto = £2 Line / Played x2

      for some reason i like the raffle addition.  i like the one on euro millins more.  but at least if my numbers on lotto  are a bust there is still a chance. every ticket now 51 chances of winning.
