National Lottery May Cut Ticket Prices
There are reports emerging that the cost of National Lottery tickets could be reduced and the unpopular extra balls removed following a drop in ticket sales.
Changes were made to the lottery in the hope of attracting more players but instead there has been an 8.8% drop in ticket sales to £6.92 billion. It is thought that Lotto bosses are looking into how to reverse this and are ruling nothing out. The new lottery format also has a raffle draw that always produces winners but jackpot wins for the main draw are far rarer.
Camelot has said that an update will be given with their half-year sales figures later this year. Jo Taylor, the chairperson of Camelot, has said that they need to work to re-engage players. The company is currently undertaking a review but so far is refusing to officially speculate on any potential outcomes.
