    Anyone else noticed how it seems to be getting smaller week by week, or were we not supposed to notice?

    It's no surprise. When they have the huge Euromillions one it makes little sense to continue increasing the national one.

    Yes, I'm aware. But if they don't increase it then they're technically decreasing it even if they keep it the same. Three million pounds this year will be worth less in a few years, so if they don't increase it then it's always becoming less valuable.

    And they're increasing ticket prices to £2 later this year. Barely worth buying a ticket.
