UK Lotto FAQs

  •   What is UK Lotto?

    UK Lotto is the main national lottery game in the United Kingdom. Launched in 1994, with a Wednesday draw added in 1997, it has raised more than £42 Billion for good causes in the UK and abroad. The game was thoroughly revamped in October 2015 when prize levels and jackpots were increased and the number of main balls was increased from 49 to 59. A guaranteed £1 Million jackpot was also introduced for the UK Lotto Millionaire Maker raffle.

  •   How does it work?

    You need to choose 6 numbers from a possible 59. To win the jackpot you need to match all 6 numbers. For the second tier prize you need to match 5 main numbers plus the Bonus Ball, which is drawn from a separate machine. UK Lotto is drawn every Wednesday and Saturday in London and, if nobody wins the jackpot, it rolls over to the next draw, up to a maximum of £66 Million. UK Lotto Raffle is drawn at the same time using a separate, automatically-generated number included on each ticket.

  •   What does it pay?

    The UK Lotto jackpot usually kicks off around £2.5 million for the Wednesday draw and £5 Million on a Saturday, although rollovers and Super Draws can go much higher. The jackpot conyinues to roll over till it hits £50 Million. If, once it hits that level, it still hasn't been won, there is one more rollover draw with an unlimited jackpot based on the number of tickets sold (The current record is £66 Million). If that draw doesn't produce a winner the jackpot prize pot is divided among winners of the next prize level down (5 Main Numbers + Bonus Ball) and the jackpot returns to the normal amount. There are 5 prize levels in total and you need to match 3 balls to win the entry level prize of £25 or match 2 balls and you can win back the price of your ticket, which will be credited to your BuyLottoOnline account.
