Rumours are rife after the weekend, that X Factor supremo, Simon Cowell is to launch a lottery style gameshow. Last week the Daily Mirror spoke to Mr Cowell for an interview where he dropped hints of his plans. If the X Factor is anything to go by then we know that anything Simon Cowell touches soon turns to gold but could a lottery based gameshow work in the UK? Probably if Simon Cowell is behind it!
The idea is that players will buy scratchcards before the show and play along from home, however this has already been attempted with bingo style shows and been shown not to work as a concept.
The glitzy, interactive lottery gameshow would require viewers to buy a scratchcard and then watch the show to win cash prizes. Mr Cowell is staying tight lipped over the news saying he doesn’t want anyone to pinch his idea.
A source from Mr Cowell’s production agency is quoted in the paper as saying that, everyone is really excited about the new show, but as they are sworn to secrecy they couldn’t give any more details.
Obviously if there are any more details about a lottery show launching in the UK, especially with Simon Cowell at the helm then you’ll be hearing about it here on our lottery news pages.
In National Lottery news, the next lottery draw is on Wednesday evening and the jackpot for that draw is an estimated £2.4 million, buy lottery tickets now and don’t forget to check back for all the lottery results too.
