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 regularly climb to eight figures. The top prize can reach a maximum of £22 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.

Special Lotto Draws

Lotto holds special draws every now and again to celebrate big events such as Christmas or the Olympics, with extra raffle prizes put on offer. When the Lotto Millionaire Raffle was first launched on 10th October 2015, a special draw guaranteed that 25 players would become millionaires. On 27th August 2016, there were 27 prizes of £1 million, 23 prizes of £100,000 and 17 prizes of £50,000, in honour of the gold, silver and bronze medals won by Great Britain at the Rio Olympics. Special festive draws have also been introduced, with 200 extra prizes of £20,000 put up for grabs in the pre-Christmas Lotto draw in both 2016 and 2017.

UK Lotto History

UK 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 £22 million.
