Announced on Wednesday, lottery players will see a rise from £1 to £2 in ticket prices.

Changes have also been made in the amount of prize money available.

The amount paid to those matching three numbers will rise from £10 to £25 and matching four numbers from £60 to £100.

Views from shopkeepers and lottery players are divided on how they believe the price rise will affect the number of people buying tickets.

Lottery players have their opinions on change

In 2009 the price of a Euromillions ticket rose from £1.50 to £2 and there appeared to be no drop in the amount of players.

One Glasgow shopkeeper believed that the price rise will not affect the number of players buying tickets due to the increasing in winnings available.

Many players state that higher winnings “make things more interesting.”

Higher winnings can make playing the lottery more exciting as the chance of winning the jackpot is one in a million.

Some lottery players in Glasgow didn’t think it would affect their playing habits.

Shopkeepers don’t believe there will be a change in people buying tickets.

Betty and Jean have their opinions on the lottery changes.
