UK Lotto

› UK Lotto

The UK Lotto is drawn on Wednesday and Saturday evening and requires players to select six numbers from a pool of 59. In addition to the jackpot, which is won by matching all six main numbers, there are five additional prize tiers, so ticket holders can claim a reward by matching as few as two main numbers.

Jackpots can keep rolling over when they are not won and can regularly climb to eight figures. The top prize can reach a maximum of 55 million before it must be won, but this cap can occasionally be increased by Lotto officials. Once the jackpot cap is reached, if nobody in the next draw is able to match all six main numbers, the prize money will roll down to be shared between players in the next winning tier.

The biggest-ever UK Lotto jackpot win to date happened in January 2016, when two winning tickets shared a 66,070,646 jackpot, with the payout to each ticket holder amounting to just over 33 million. Another colossal jackpot was given away just a few weeks later when a single player won 32.5 million in the draw on Saturday 13th February.

This UK Lotto data includes all draws up to and including Wednesday 4th May 2016. Chronology is used to distinguish ties.

UK Lotto History

Lotto has undergone a number of changes over the years and the most recent alterations were made in October 2015, when the numbers available to choose from increased from 49 to 59. A new prize tier was introduced to reward players for matching just two main numbers, while the Lotto Millionaire Raffle was launched to guarantee that at least one ticket holder in every draw would win 1 million. As part of the raffle, there would also be 20 winners of 20,000 each. A limit of four rollovers was also scrapped to give the jackpot the ability to reach higher values, and it now has the capacity to rise beyond 55 million.
