The National Lottery is to introduce a new structure to its flagship Lotto and Lotto Plus games, which will see two additional numbers added to the traditional 45-number matrix.
The cost of playing will also increase by €0.50 per line, with the minimum price for two lines rising to €4. The National Lottery said that the changes will 'guarantee bigger jackpots and better prizes through an enhanced prize structure'.
The National Lottery’s Agent Council, comprised of representative members from CSNA, RGDATA, the Irish Postmasters Union and NFRN, said, “The National Lottery Agent Council agrees that now is the right time for Premier Lotteries Ireland to introduce a Lotto Game Change – making lottery games more attractive and enticing to our valued customers.
“We understand to deliver these game enhancements a change in price and the introduction of additional numbers is necessary. However these changes should be considered in the context of the benefit to our customers and our communities."
