The lottery has always been almost impossible to win, but since they added 10 extra numbers to the pot back in 2015, the odds have got even worse. Back when the balls went up to 49, you had about a 1 in 14 million chance of winning. But with the numbers 50–59 joining the party, the odds have jumped to 1 in 45 million.
And as if that wasn't enough, the price has also doubled to £2 per entry in recent years. A multi-million pound jackpot may sound tempting, but if the odds and entry fee aren't enough to put you off, check out this list of completely bizarre things that are still more likely to happen than you winning the lottery.
