Interesting Numbers - The Lottery

Camelot, the company that runs The National Lottery in the UK, has reduced the odds of winning the jackpot by 320%.

(They have added an extra 10 numbers, which means people will have to choose 6 numbers out of 59 not 49. The odds of matching six numbers from 49 balls was 14 million to one - with 59 numbers those odds jump to a whopping 45 million to one.

And there will be no more maximum number for rollovers - which means that jackpots could keep rolling and get bigger and bigger, and people will get greedier and greedier.

Another change means that people will get something for matching 2 numbers - a free Lucky Dip ticket for a future draw. Wow!)
