Here’s all the info on the Lotto – from the draw time to how the Thunderball works

THE Lotto draw arguably provides the most uplifting sweepstake because of the mind-blowing effects it can have on people’s lives.

While the prize fund will evidently transform a lucky punter’s lifestyle, a portion of money spent on the draw supports a whole range of charities and projects across the UK.

National Lottery prizes are paid as a lump sum and are tax-free.

At least 28 per cent of all money spent on the games goes to “good-causes” set out by Parliament, and 50 per cent goes to the winner.

Players buy tickets with their choice of six different numbers between 1 and 59.

But for the indecisive few, random numbers can be automatically generated as part of the “Lucky Dip”.

The Lotto draw takes place every Wednesday and Saturday at 8.30pm.

This Saturday’s jackpot stands at a very healthy £3.2 million.

Players must pick five main numbers from 1 to 39 and on Thunderball number which ranges from 1 to 14.

Prizes may be won by matching the main numbers, but those who also match with the Thunderball will win a larger prize.

If a player matches with the Thunderball only, they could win £3. But those who match with the Thunderball and five numbers could win £500,000.

Draws take place every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, half an hour before the main Lotto draw at 8.00pm.

Prizes are awarded to players who match at least three of the six drawn numbers.

The sweepstake increases for those who match more of the drawn numbers. But players who equally match all six, will get equal shares of the jackpot.

Don’t fear, the chances of matching with another player is 1 in 45,057,474.
