I have always been warned off the National Lottery due to the poor odds at winning anything. So when I heard that the EuroMillions might be a good bet I decided to purchased one 'ticket.' This was in a local Tescos. IT COST TWO POUNDS.
Now I had always thought that a Lottery ticket cost ONE pound. So I
asked where on the leaflets, and playing form was there a mention of
the cost of a ticket. The staff couldn't tell me. I checked the small
print on the back. Nothing.
So is Camelot ripping the gullible public off by not printing the
betting cost? Or is Tesco charging a fee for the processing too?
Whatever - how can Camelot and Tesco get away with not advertising the
costs? Surely that's a scam at best or illegal at worst.
