National Lottery to Launch Annuity Game

The National Lottery in the UK has announced plans to launch an annuity game next year subject to government approval.

It’s no secret that Camelot has been struggling to get players to join in the Lotto games in recent months with cash for good causes particularly affected, and so they’ll be hoping this new game will catch the imagination of players. The annuity game would see winners receive thousands of pounds a month for at least 25 years, and may be the key to turning around Camelot’s fortunes.

The move is part of a string of new ideas set to offset falling ticket sales and it’s hoped that the new game will draw back players who have turned away from the game. Other countries successfully run these riches for life games and now we could see similar here in the UK as soon as next year.

The game would launch in the spring of next year if it gets government approval and would offer regular fixed months payments over a number of years. Camelot say they have carried out research in the UK and in countries where similar games play and think the new game could be the answer to the lottery’s woes.

The exact ticket price and prizes are yet to be confirmed but on suggestion it already seems popular and could launch as early as next spring. The move is part of an overhaul to the Lotto and EuroMillions that could see the Millionaire Raffle prize scrapped for bigger second prizes on the main draw and the maximum rollovers cut too, to ensure the jackpots are won more often.
