UK Thunderball History

The first UK Thunderball draw took place in June 1999. Players had to pick five main numbers from a pool of 34, and one Thunderball from 14. The game was originally drawn on a Wednesday and Saturday and offered a jackpot of £250,000.

The game underwent big changes in May 2010, including an increase in the jackpot prize from £250,000 to £500,000 and an additional prize for just matching the Thunderball. A Friday draw was also introduced at this time. In January 2018 a new Tuesday Thunderball draw was introduced, but no other changes were made to the game.
