The UK National Lottery sucks!!!! They wonder why less and less people are buying tickets. It's because the prizes are poop.
This is how last nights draw broke down....
Match 6 3 2,223,990 6,671,970
Match 5+bonus 35 18,313 640,955
Match 5 789 507 400,023
Match 4 35,469 24 851,256
Match 3 523,808 10 5,238,080

Seriously, you match 5 numbers in a 6 number lottery and you're going home with 500 pounds? Most people make that in a week, and they've probably spent more than that on tickets and scratch cards in the last year.
Decrease Camelots (or whoever runs the lottery now) profit, Increase the prize fund, and spread the money around more.

Yeah, I must say I'd be pretty annoyed if I almost had a heart attack when matching 5 numbers to find I'd only won 500 quid!

Gah ... I just saw on the site there's a frequency checker. Now THAT says a lot about the mentality Camelot want players to have! Shocked

Edit: <sarcasm>OMG ... 13 has been drawn less than any other ball over the whole history of the lottery. So it IS true about 13 being unlucky then!</sarcasm>

In the US we have some of those scratch off lottery cards that pay more than that.

Aint it weird how 35 people got the 5+bonus however only 3 got the 6 numbers. Its effectively the same odds (ish) to get the 5+bonus but so many more win it.

I call shenanigans!

The prizes are poop because less and less people are buying tickets.
