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 49. In addition to the jackpot, which is won by matching all six main numbers, there are four additional prize tiers, the lowest tier being a cash prize of £25 for matching just three main numbers.
Jackpots start at £2.5 million for the Wednesday draw and £5 million for the Saturday draw. The jackpot can roll over a maximum of four times before a must-be-won draw is held, after which, if there is still no Match 6 winner, the jackpot rolls down to be shared between players in the next winning prize tier.
The biggest-ever UK Lotto jackpot win to date happened in January 1996 when three winning tickets shared a £42,008,610 jackpot, with the pay-out being just over £14 million to each ticket holder.

UK Lotto History
Lotto underwent significant changes to the game in October 2013. The prize of a single entry was raised from £1 to £2, while the prize tiers were modified to allow for bigger jackpots. In addition, the Match 3 fixed prize was increased from £10 to £25. A supplementary game called Lotto Raffle was also introduced, where 50 ticket holders win a guaranteed £20,000 prize in every draw by matching the code on their ticket to one of the winning codes drawn.
