UK LOTTO GAMES
It is true that lotteries are one of the easiest and stress-free ways of making millionaires. But, to win a lottery, you have to play. The UK has a number of top-rated lotteries which offer players a chance to change their lives forever. Below are some of UK’s top-rated lotto games.
Originally created in 1994 and known as the National Lottery up till 2002, the Lotto is the UK’s first and most popular lottery game. To play the UK Lotto, a player chooses six numbers between 1 and 59. Players who do not wish to select their numbers can choose the Lucky Dip which allows the system to automatically generate and choose numbers for the player.
During the draws which take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays every week, six numbers are draws from a pool of 59 balls numbered from 1 to 59. A seventh ball known as the Bonus Ball is also drawn and these balls applies only to those players who match five main balls. Every player who successfully matches all six main balls drawn gets an equal share of the jackpot. Should no player match the six balls, the jackpot is rolled over. Prizes also exist for those players who match at least three of the six numbers draws, and the prizes increase as the number of balls matched increases.
Each line also includes an automatic Millionaire Raffle entry, which includes a £1 million guaranteed prize as well as 20 guaranteed prizes of £20,000 every draw. The cost per play is £2.00.
Played in nine countries including UK, France, Spain, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland, Luxembourg and Portugal, the EuroMillions lottery was launched on the 7th of February 2004 by Camelot, a lottery organization. It’s first draw took place in Paris on February 13, 2004. With a minimum jackpot of €17 million, which can be rolled over to a maximum of €190 million, the EuroMillions is one of the biggest and most popular lotteries in the UK.
To play this lottery game, players have to choose five numbers from 1 to 50 and another two numbers from 1 to 12 known as Lucky Star numbers. Players can also choose the Lucky Dip option. Players also get a UK Millionaire Maker entry with every line played, and players can play not more than 7 lines per payslip. Draws are held on Tuesdays and Fridays every week with tickets sold every day from 8 AM to 11 PM. However, ticket sales close on 7:30 PM on draw days. The jackpot is won when a player’s five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers match those drawn. In addition, two millionaires are created each draw via the UK Millionaire Maker. The cost per play is £2.50
- Millionaire Maker
The Millionaire Maker is a supplementary game to the EuroMillions draw exclusively for UK players. UK players of the EuroMillions are automatically entered into the UK Millionaire Maker when they purchase a EuroMillions ticket. For every line of numbers played, a raffle number which consists of five digits and four numbers is automatically generated. Every draw, two UK players are guaranteed to win a prize of £1 million.
The Thunderball is yet another UK lottery game that guarantees a top prize of £500,000 each draw. Draws take place every Wednesday, Fridays and Saturdays. And irrespective of the people who win the top prize, it remains constant.
To play the Thunderball, players are expected to select five numbers from 1 to 39 and an extra one number between 1 and 14 known as the Thunderball. The jackpot is won when all the five main numbers plus the Thunderball match the numbers drawn. Other prizes exist for those who match any amount of numbers plus or minus the Thunderball. Even matching the Thunderball alone gets a prize. The cost per play is £1.00.
The Lotto HotPicks is a different game from the UK Lotto even though it uses the Lotto draws. This game is played by predicting the amount of numbers you will match between 1 and 59. The top prize of £350,000is won if a player correctly predicts that his/her numbers will match those selected. With the Lotto HotPicks, every player who wins the top prize receives a cash prize of £350,000. This game is described as “five games in one” because of the fact that each player has five choices to choose from when playing the game with each choice carrying different odds and offering different pay-outs. The draws are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays and the cost per play is £1.00
Other UK lottery games exist such as the Health Lottery which is played on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and offers a top prize of £100,000, which is won when a player matches all five numbers drawn. This lottery donates 20p off every £1 payed to good causes across Britain.
