Camelot has announced the biggest changes to the National Lottery since it began 21 years ago - and says they will improve players' chances.
Instead of having numbers 1-49 to choose from, Lotto players will select their winning digits from a pool of 59, in sweeping changes to the game taking effect later this year.
Describing the changes as "enhancements," operator Camelot said they will give players a better chance of winning - and better odds of becoming a millionaire.
Players who match two numbers will win a Lucky Dip ticket for a future draw, which Camelot said would create an extra 1.8 million winners a week and increase the overall chance of winning any prize from one in 54 currently to one in 9.3.
It is also creating a new "Millionaire Raffle" that will guarantee at least one millionaire per draw.
The average winning jackpot is also expected to be triple the current level.
But players will see their 1 in 14 million chance of winning the jackpot drop to 1 in 45 million.
The changes will mean:
- Average winning jackpot expected to be tripled
- Two matching numbers will win a Lucky Dip ticket
- The cost of playing will remain at £2 a line
- Other prizes, such as £25 for matching three numbers, will remain
- A 'Millionaire Raffle' will guarantee at least one millionaire per draw
- Odds of winning at least £1 million drop to one in 10 million
Camelot is yet to reveal the exact October launch date for the changes.
