This means the chance of matching all six balls will decrease from one in 14million currently, to one in 45million. He calculated that the chance of matching all six numbers from 59 balls would increase to precisely one in 45,057,474.

Camelot chief executive Andy Duncan said: "Lotto has enjoyed two years of consecutive growth since we re-invigorated the game in 2013 and has already delivered over ?250 million more to Good Causes than if we had done nothing to change the game.
