The cost of a Lotto ticket will double to £2 in September, we must not allow this to happen. This is just a ploy to make the rich get richer. I play the National Lottery twice a week and spend just £2 a week, I am sure a lot of people spend more than that a week. Losing £2 a week to the lottery is not that bad, especially when I console myself that it's going to one good cause or another. One day I pray that Hidden Desires Foundation might benefit from the lottery to go to towards Sickle Cell Anemia Research.
As you can see, the lowest prize – for matching three numbers – is set to leap by 150% to £25 from £10. From September, matching four balls will get you a typical prize of £100, a rise of two-thirds (67%) from the current average payout of £60. Please don't be fooled by the increase in the prize money, that't what the Fat Cat's are hoping on. Again, the odds of playing the Lotto will not change in September, nor will the payout ratio of 50%. Therefore, despite the changes to the prize levels, the Lotto will remain a famously bad gamble! So Please sign the petition for the National Lottery to remain just £1 to play.

Clearly, this proposed price increase is aimed at making Camelot and its partners more money, it will backfire if we all come together and Boycott the Lotto. Maybe we should Boycott the National Lottery and start playing the Health Lottery which is £1 and more credible.
