The National Lottery, also known as the UK Lottery or Lotto, has awarded thousands of prizes over £1,000,000 since it was launched in 1994. The largest jackpot prize was a £42 million double rollover in January 1996. The draws are done twice a week on Wednesday and Saturday nights (20:00 GMT).

How to Play UK Lottery

Players need to choose 6 numbers from a possible 49, otherwise known as a 6/49 number format. No other number need to be selected from a second set as found in other major lotteries.

UK Lottery Prizes and Odds

To win the jackpot, all 6 chosen numbers need to match all 6 numbers drawn. A bonus ball is also drawn, providing an additional prize tier for players matching the bonus number and 5 numbers. The UK Lottery is limited to only 4 rollovers. Given the good odds of the UK lottery, the jackpot will seldom rollover more than once or twice, putting the jackpot rarely rising about the £10 million mark.
