I agree with Richard Barton (Irish Examiner letters, August 10) when he says “any normal person anywhere would be happy winning €2m and only the insane would want to decrease their chances of winning anything”.
Many of the people who do the lottery regularly use the same numbers each time. These often consist of birthdays which means all the number are under 31.
Their chances of winning have now gone from one in eight million to one in eleven million. But regular lotto players don’t have to sit back and take it. I, for one, will cease my habit of more than 20 years and stop playing lotto twice weekly when the increase is implemented in early September. Consumer resistance can reverse this decision.
