UK Lotto HISTORY

First launched in 1994 as the National Lottery but was changed to ‘Lotto’ in 2002 and has continued operating under that name ever since. The UK Lotto remains the UK’s most popular lottery game and, since its launch, has created thousands of millionaires while investing over £30 billion in a variety of good causes in the UK. In October 2013, the UK Lotto introduced their raffle, increased the 5th tier prize from €10 to €25, and also increased the size of the jackpot.

JACKPOT

The fourth UK National Lottery Lotto prize is won by matching four main numbers. Since there are six main numbers drawn in the game and the player gets to select six numbers, the odds of success here are a rather good 1 in 1,033. The biggest UK lottery Jackpot win was £42 Million! Since 1994 the lotto has paid out over £53 BILLION in prize money!
