UK National Lottery Introduction



The UK National Lottery was first drawn in 1994, kick-starting a lottery obsession that has reigned supreme in the United Kingdom ever since. It is run by Camelot, who oversee all state lotteries in the UK (including the EuroMillions), and are also responsible for producing scratchcards.




All UK National Lottery winnings are tax-free and paid in a single sum, with no annuities. The lottery has helped to fund many important community projects in the UK over the years, as a large chunk of its profits go to charitable endeavours, with the rest used to boost the prize pool.




In fact, during its first twenty years of operation the National Lottery gave €39 billion to good causes and is thought to have played an important role in growing the country’s sport, arts, and culture programs, which in turn have played a role in everything from the country’s 2012 Olympic success to its booming film industry.




How to Play UK National Lottery



It costs €2.00 to play the UK National Lottery, and players are tasked with choosing 6 numbers from between 1 and 59. There is a bonus ball drawn, and this impacts on the prize structure, but it is not chosen as a separate number by the player.




There have been a few changes to the rules and the payouts over the years, and one of the most recent of these occurred in October 2015, after which players could win a free Lotto ticket by matching just 2 numbers.




Jackpots and Records



In 2016, the UK National Lottery introduced a jackpot cap of £22 million. If it reaches this amount then it can only roll-over once more, otherwise the money will be shared by players from the second prize tier.




Prior to these changes in late 2016, the jackpot reached its highest ever of £66 million (at the time there was a £50 million cap that allowed 1 additional rollover). There are some claims stating that the largest ever UK National Lottery jackpot was £161 million, but this amount was actually won on the EuroMillions (by a UK based player) and the National Lottery has not scaled these heights.




Winning Odds of UK National Lottery



The UK National Lottery returns jackpot odds of 1 in 45 million and there is a 1 in 10 chance of winning a free ticket.
