The UK Lotto is a British based Lotto, but with Ice Lotto, you can play it from anywhere, anytime. Pick 6 from 59 numbers on the ticket and you’re a step closer to being part of the winnings. Each UK Lotto ticket bought is subsequently given a unique UK Lotto Raffle number. Between 50 and 250 people can win €20,000 in each draw! When there is a rollover in the Raffle, 100 people win the next draw. A double rollover gives 150 people a win, a triple rollover gives 200 people €20,000. That number increases to 250 people for a quadruple rollover.
The UK Lotto has a 5 tier prize breakdown. The first tier wins the jackpot by having all 6 numbers chosen match those in the draw. There is a 1 in 45,057,474 chance of being the lucky winner of this. The second tier, of which there is a 1 in 7,509,579 chance of winning, is won by those who have matched 5 correct numbers, and have a matching 6th number to the Bonus Ball, drawn after the main numbers have been drawn. 1 in 144,415 players will win the 3rd tier prize, choosing 5 matching numbers. Matching 4 out of 6 numbers will win you the 4th tier prize, with a likelihood of 1 in 2,180. Finally the 5th tier prize of €25 is won by 1 in 97 players. There is an overall 1 in 9.3 chance of winning something in the UK Lotto.
The UK Lotto is run by the National Lottery, which has been licensed to the Camelot Group since 1994. 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.
