The UK Lottery has been claimed for a £32.5 Million prize in the Saturday 13 February 2016 draw.
Despite this lottery jackpot win and the apparent revival of the lottery game, there is a growing dissatisfaction developing with the UK Lottery game.
There are a few very valid reasons as to why this is happening.
UK Lottery Changes Cause Dissatisfaction
Changes that Camelot introduced are the primary reason. Having added 10 lottery numbers to the main draw has made the UK Lotto incredibly difficult to win.
Odds of winning a lottery jackpot are already massive, adding 10 numbers to the main part of the draw makes it astronomical odds.
Camelot of course point to the fact that Jackpot sizes and sales have increased, they of course would take this path of reasoning, the fact remains that jackpots have increased because less people are winning.
The size of the UK Lottery Jackpot is increasing, there is no denying that fact that is therefore enticing lottery players to spend more on Lottery tickets to win.
This is essentially an additional tax on lottery players. The price of the UK Lotto ticket was increased to £2, also there were a number of prize tiers added.
It must be stated that these prize tiers are of inconsequential value in monetary terms, most players will be rewarded with a free lucky dip ticket for the next draw.
That in itself will increase the odds even further. All of this plays directly into the hands of Camelot who manage both the UK Lottery and EuroMillions in the United Kingdom.
Camelot have aped the successful recipe on of EuroMillions by increasing the prize and adding a Raffle, by adding ten extra numbers they have also made sure that Lottery Jackpots will be massive.
Mathematicians at Camelot HQ must be rubbing their hands in glee at the success of their machinations.
Foreign Online Lottery Games
There is however a fly in this particular ointment, apart from growing dissatisfaction among UK Lottery players.
Media Outlets in the United Kingdom are now starting to question the wisdom of playing the National Lottery game.
It has been reported that Lottery players are starting to turn to other Lottery games, there are a range of Online Lottery games that can be played with better odds.
We love to report on lottery jackpot wins, in this case we are extremely happy that a lottery player has managed to win this £32.5 Million Jackpot.
It has though taken 10 lottery draws for this to happen. The record £66 Million Lottery win was won after 17 rollovers of the lottery game.
Camelot do need to be careful as many lottery players are dissatisfied and there are other massive Online Lottery Jackpot games that can be played for a fraction of the cost.
