Play UK Lotto online by choosing six numbers from a guess range of 1-59. When you play Lotto online you are automatically entered into the UK Lotto Raffle, which awards additional prizes at every draw. The UK Lotto Raffle was introduced in 2013 and after changes made in October 2015, the raffle now distributes 20 prizes worth £20,000 and one £1 million prize with every draw based on the 12-digit code on your ticket. There's a whole new way to become a lottery millionaire with UK Lotto! In its 20 years, the National Lottery -- UK's official lottery operator -- has raised more than £30 billion worth of funds for a wide variety of charitable causes both in the UK and overseas. Fifty per cent of ticket sales go towards lottery and raffle prizes, while 28% (approximately £30 million each week) go to the National Lottery Good Causes foundation, which has distributed the funds to more than 1,000 organisations.
UK Lotto draws take place Wednesdays and Saturdays at 22:00 GMT.
UK Lotto has traditionally offered some of the most delectable jackpots of any European lottery. The UK Lotto jackpot does not have a specific rollover limit; the jackpot can rollover until it reaches a fluctuating amount agreed upon by the National Lottery and Camelot, the UK lottery operator. If the jackpot is not won once it exceeds that amount, the entire Jackpot will roll down to the next prize category where there is at least one winner. UK Lotto staged a “must-be- won jackpot” draw on 27 December 2017 and there were no winners of the top prize! The jackpot rolled down to the next prize division with a winning ticket. A single ticket with a Match 5 + Bonus number won a prize of £24,501,283. Not bad at all for a second division prize!
The UK Lotto jackpot record was set on set on 9 January 2016, when after 14 rollovers, two tickets matched the winning numbers to share the £66 million jackpot. One of the winners was a Scottish couple – David and Carol Martin – while the other winner decided to remain anonymous.
