UK Lotto


UK Lotto is part of the UK National Lottery, which has been run by the Camelot Group since 1994. It was originally known simply as the National Lottery until the Lotto brand was introduced in 2001 to differentiate it from other games. The game was thoroughly revamped in 2015 to boost jackpot prizes and rollovers. This coincided with the introduction of a guaranteed £1 Million jackpot for the UK Lotto Millionaire Maker raffle. It is Britain's most popular weekly lottery.

The UK Lotto jackpot rolls over until it hits £50 Million. Once it has hit £50 Million and still not 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 then divided among winners of the next prize level down (5 Numbers + Bonus Ball) and the jackpot returns to the normal amount.

UK Lotto is drawn every Wednesday and Saturday, and in order to win you must hit 6 numbers from 1 to 59. Prizes are divided into 5 categories.

Winning combinations are as follows: (First Prize) 6/6, (Second Prize) 5/6 + bonus number, (Third Prize) 5/6, (Fourth Prize) 4/6, (Fifth Prize) 3/6.
