Are 'Lucky Dip' tickets in the Lottery more or less likely to win than chosen numbers? Does
it make any difference?

Is there any record of what percentage of Lucky Dip numbers scoop the prizes compared
to chosen numbers?

there should be no greater or lesser chance of winning either way. That said a greater number of winning tickets are lucky dips. This is due to a greater number of lucky dip sales. In theory all numbers are equally likely to be drawn. sorry PK if your hoping to reduce the odds it will cost you a large sum each week and will still only give you a three number likelyhood. happy new year btw.
