National Lottery Facts

  • The UK National Lottery launched on 14th November 1994, with the first draw taking place on 19th November the same year.
  • It is open to all players aged 18 and over.
  • Draws for the National Lottery are held twice a week - on Wednesday and Saturday evenings.
  • Any prizes claimed are tax-free.
  • Since launching, the National Lottery has raised over £42 billion for charity.
  • The largest ever National Lottery payout was made on 8th October 2019, when a single ticket holder scooped £170 million .
  • The draw expanded from 49 numbers to 59 in October 2015, with the idea that it would cause more frequent rollovers and ultimately create bigger jackpots.
  • The jackpot can roll over a maximum of five times. It becomes a Must Be Won Jackpot on the sixth draw - if no-one matches the full set of numbers still, the total jackpot will be shared between all winning tickets. This means that a winning ticket usually worth £30 for matching three numbers could pay out £100.
  • Since starting in 1994, the National Lottery has created over 5,700 new millionaires.
