The company is to introduce larger prizes, bigger jackpots and a new Lotto raffle.

The prize for matching three numbers will increase from £10 to £25, while the average Saturday jackpot will rise to around £5m and the Wednesday will increase to around £2.5m. The new raffle will see 50 winners scoop a guaranteed £20,000 in each draw.

Camelot said it has redeveloped the lottery in consultation with National Lottery players.

“Our players still love Lotto – but after 18 years, they say they want more from it,” said Andy Duncan, managing director of Camelot UK Lotteries. “We’ve spoken extensively with them to develop a re-energised game, and the changes we’ll be introducing in the autumn to rejuvenate Lotto will give them what they have asked for: £25 for matching three numbers; bigger jackpots; and a brand new way to play and win one of 50 prizes of a guaranteed £20,000 on each and every draw.”
