Thunderball Introduction

Thunderball is a spin-off of the UK National Lottery that is organised by Camelot and drawn several times a week. It was designed to be cheaper, easier to get to grips with, and to produce more regular jackpot winners. The Thunderball manages to do all of those things and is one of the most popular side games offered by Camelot.


The very first Thunderball draw took place in the summer of 1999 and was initially only drawn on Saturday night. After the UK Lotto underwent a big change in 2002, the Thunderball then became a twice weekly draw, and today it is drawn four times a week, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. These draw days all corresponded to other major Camelot draw days, with Tuesday and Friday being the days of the EuroMillions and Wednesday and Saturday being the days of the UK Lotto.


How to Play Thunderball

Every Thunderball ticket consists of 5 numbers from 1 to 39 and 1 “Thunderball” number from 1 to 14. It costs £1 per play and there are many prizes, the biggest of which are paid out when the Thunderball appears in addition to some of the main numbers.


For instance, a ticket that matches 2 main numbers will not return a win of any kind, but one that matches only the Thunderball will win a prize of £3. The Thunderball is a huge number in this lottery, and it’s also required to win the jackpot, which is paid out to players who get all 5 main numbers and the Thunderball.


Jackpots and Records

There is a jackpot prize of £500,000 on offer every time the Thunderball is drawn. This is a set prize, which means it does not change regardless of how few or how many tickets are sold for that particular draw. There are also set prizes for the other prize tiers, ranging from the £3 minimum win to the £5,000 paid to players who get 5 main numbers without the Thunderball.


Winning Odds of Thunderball

The odds of winning the Thunderball jackpot are just over 1 in 8 million while the odds of winning the smallest prize are 1 in 29.
