Also today, the National Lottery has launched exciting new changes to its popular Lotto Plus game that will see in excess of 50% more winners and the creation of more millionaires.
The game enhancements mean the top prize in Lotto Plus 1 will double from €500,000 to €1 million – and the chance of winning a prize across Lotto with Lotto Plus will jump from 1 in 17 to 1 in 10. There will be three new ways to win.
The game changes are expected to create an average of 16 millionaires a year across Lotto with Lotto Plus.
Under the game enhancements there will be no change in the cost of playing the main Lotto game. But to facilitate the significant prize increases the price of a Lotto Plus line will rise by 50 cent to one Euro.
