Are we pressuring people into spending when they can’t afford to?

You know as well as we do that people are generous at heart – but that doesn’t mean we should take from those who can’t afford it. Our lotteries typically cost £1 per ticket, which means they are less likely to break the household budget. Players can stop playing the lottery at any time should they need to.
