More Information about the UK Lottery:
How do you win the UK Lottery Jackpot?
When you play the UK Lotto, there are various ways to win cash prizes. To win the jackpot you will need to match all six winning numbers or if you should match five winning numbers and the ‘bonus ball’ you will win a £1 million special prize which was recently introduced. Otherwise, you will need to match a minimum of two numbers to win a prize.
The prizes for all the lower tiers are now fixed amounts and no longer based on a percentage of the total prize money.
If you match five balls and no bonus ball, players will win £1,750 and matching four balls wins you a prize of £140.
If you match three balls you will win £30, which is up from £25.
What is the UK National Lottery?
The first draw took place in November 1994 and in January 1997 the midweek draw started. The one thousandth millionaire was created at the start of the new millennium in 2000 and in 2002 the UK National Lottery was rebranded as the UK Lotto. On the 19th of November 2019 this fabulous British lottery celebrated its 25th anniversary.
The ‘Must Be Won’ roll down draw was implemented on the 21st of November 2020 and was also where larger cash prizes were introduced. This resulted with the UK National Lottery jackpot being won more often and bigger cash prizes being handed out to the lower tiers.

The UK Lottery Jackpot Rollovers
The UK Lottery jackpot rollovers were changed and only allow the jackpot to roll over five times and then it must be won. If no player wins the jackpot after the fifth draw in a row, it is divided between the players who matched three or more numbers.
Is there a jackpot cap with the UK Lotto?
The UK National Lottery only rolls over five times before it must be won. If nobody picks the winning numbers by the fifth roll over, the jackpot is then split between the lower tier players that managed to match three or more numbers.
