The UK National Lottery UK LOTTO
Play the UK Lotto Online!
History of UK Lottery:
|The UK National Lottery’s first draw was presented by Noel Edmonds on 19 November 1994 and boasted the considerable prize of £5,874,778. This was shared by seven winners. Unlike most state lotteries, the UK National Lottery is privately operated by the Camelot Group under government licence. Initially, the draw was popular amongst people in the UK but as sales started to fall in the beginning of the new millennium, the National Lottery underwent key rebranding processes in 2002. Maintaining the original name as the National Lottery to refer to the collective games, the main game was renamed Lotto and the National Lottery Extra became Lotto Extra. The logo was restyled along with renaming the two games in the collective. Sales rose once again and it has become one of the most widely accessed forms of gambling in the United Kingdom.|
How To Play The UK Lottery:
The UK National Lottery has one of the simplest lottery structures, making it easy to play and win. Players choose 6 numbers out of a possible 49. Prizes are awarded to players who match at least three of the six balls drawn. To win the jackpot, players need to pick all 6 drawn balls from the lottery machine. These consist of 5 balls plus the Bonus Ball. This final Bonus Ball only affects players who have matched all five numbers drawn. If the jackpot remains unclaimed, the prize money is added to the following weeks’ jackpot, called a rollover. There is also a “Lucky Dip” option which generates an automated set of numbers for players who do not wish to choose their own sequence. The UK Lotto is conducted on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 8.00pm GMT, excepting Christmas Day where the draw is moved to Christmas Eve. The draw is broadcast live on BBC One and online tickets may be purchased until a few hours before the broadcast.
UK Lottery Rollovers and Historic Jackpots:
The rollover for this lottery is limited to 4, but there have only ever been a few triple rollovers in its history. Occasionally, the organisers will hold a UK Lotto Superdraw where the jackpot is a set amount irrespective of rollovers or ticket sales. The lucky winners of £42,008,610 made history on January 6th, 1996, winning the largest jackpot to date for the UK Lotto.
UK Lottery Prize Tiers:
The UK Lottery is appealing around the world due to tax-free winnings and a lump sum pay-out. There are a total of five prize tiers with all players who choose 4 and above matched numbers receiving a percentage of the total prize fund.
Funds are divided up after payout of 3-ball winners:
|3 numbers||£10 per winner|
|4 numbers||22% of remaining fund|
|5 numbers||10% of remaining fund|
|5 numbers and bonus ball||16% of remaining fund|
|6 numbers||52% of remaining fund|
