National Lottery - Exciting Changes To Lotto
What is new Lotto?
Get ready for some exciting changes to Lotto.
From Saturday 5th October, there will be more ways to win more money.
Lotto will cost £2, creating bigger jackpots and a brand new raffle with at least 50 guaranteed winners of £20,000 in every draw. Plus, matching just 3 numbers will now win you £25!
A brand new raffle
Now, every line you play also gets you automatic entry into the new Lotto raffle. Your raffle numbers will be printed on your ticket and every draw we'll be guaranteeing at least 50 winners of £20,000. So now there are two things to check on your ticket.
We're putting twice as much in the prize pot
The table below shows the exciting changes we're making to Lotto's prizes, including bigger jackpots and £25 for matching 3 numbers.
|Ways to win||Lotto before 5th Oct||New Lotto|
|Match 6 (jackpot)†||Sat £3.9m||Sat £5m|
|Wed £2.1m||Wed £2.5m|
|Match 5 plus Bonus Ball†||£100,000||£50,000|
|Raffle (50 winners)||N/A||£20,000|
† Estimated. As is currently the case with Lotto, the prizes stated for Match 4, Match 5, Match 5+Bonus and Match 6 are an average of what we anticipate prizes will be. These will vary depending on sales, but also the number of winners in a draw for any given prize tier.
More exciting Rollovers
New Lotto is making Rollovers more exciting than ever before. Now when the jackpot rolls, the number of raffle winners of £20,000 grows, creating even more guaranteed winners.
The table below shows how the number of raffle winners grows with each Lotto roll.
