U.K. - Lotto Information

The Main Rules of the UK Lotto

As per the National Lottery, each ticket entered in the UK Lotto must have six numbers selected from a guess range of 1 to 59. Draws are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 22:00 GMT. For each draw, six numbers are taken from the official ballet. Then, a Bonus Ball is also drawn from the same ballet.

The Prizes in the UK Lotto

Players who guess all six numbers are entitled to the grand jackpot, but the UK Lotto features a total of six prizes. The second prize is awarded to players who have the Bonus Ball and five of the main numbers.

As there is no fixed jackpot cap in the UK Lotto, the grand prize can reach impressive amounts. The biggest jackpot in the UK Lotto up to date is £42 MILLION, but there is a high chance for this record to be broken in the draws to come.

The UK Lotto and the Lotto Raffle

Aside from the regular draw in the UK Lotto, ticket-holders are also entered in the Lotto Raffle. UK Lotto tickets have unique 12-digit tickets that constitute the official entry in the raffle. This additional draw offers 20 prizes worth £20,000.

Players must know that winning the Lotto Raffle relies solely on the unique codes on their tickets. They are not required to guess any of the lottery numbers to be eligible for the raffle prizes. As such, the raffle is a very important bonus of the UK Lotto.
