So, from October, Lotto bosses will be adding 10 more numbers to their random ball-picking machine.
This will make the jackpot even harder to win increasing the odds from 14million to one to 45million to one.
Methinks doubling the Lotto stake to £2 was bad enough so from October I will just stick to betting on horses as the odds of winning will be more in my favour.
Incidently, during live coverage from Royal Ascot an on-course bookie said the most popular bet made by joe public had increased from £2.50 each way to £5 each way.
Does this mark the end of recession?
