   Since the game was launched, the rules of Lotto UK have undergone some changes. In February 1997, an additional draw on Wednesdays was introduced; in October 2013, a special draw called “Raffle” appeared; and in October 2015, 10 balls were added to the playing scheme of the popular European lottery. At that time, UK Lottery founders also launched an additional draw, Lotto Millionaire Raffle, offering a special prize of £1 million.

How to Play Lotto UK

   Lotto UK holds draws at 22:30 GMT every Wednesday and at 20:30 GMT every Saturday. Starting from 2015, the main drawing is followed by a special draw with the main prize of £1 million and twenty additional prizes, £20,000 each. In order to take part in UK Lottery main draw, you have to select 6 numbers from 1 to 59 in the electronic form of the lottery ticket. If a winning ticket has all 6 numbers matching in the current draw, its holder wins the national lottery jackpot. If you have any difficulties picking numbers, you can use a random number generator in the electronic form of the raffle ticket called “Lucky Dip”.

   Lotto UK starting jackpots vary depending on the day of the draw, particularly, in the draws held on Wednesdays the minimum jackpot is £2 million, while on Saturdays it is between 3.8 and 4 million. According to UK Lottery rules, if two or more participants of a draw have 6 main numbers matching, the jackpot is divided equally between the holders of the winning lottery tickets. If the main prize is not won in a current draw, it rolls over to the next UK Lotto draw in full.

   Besides, it is important to know that UK national lottery rollovers can increase the jackpot up to £22 million which has been stipulated by organizers of the lottery who are able to annul this provision at any time. However, after UK Lotto jackpot reaches its biggest permissible amount, it can roll over to the next draw only once and if the main prize is not won in that draw, the next draw jackpot will be distributed proportionally between secondary prize categories. Nowadays, the maximum jackpot amount can exceed £22 million by default which is directly dependent on the revenue from raffle tickets sales which makes the amount of the national lottery UK main prize fund increase.

   For a period of its activity, a little more than 20 years, National Lottery UK has transferred over £30 billion to charity funds. Such generous donations are possible because 50% of the proceeds from raffle tickets sales goes to UK lotto prize pool while 28% of the remaining turnover (about £30 million weekly) is allocated to National Lottery Good Causes which then distributes the funds among hundreds of charitable organizations throughout the world.
