The UK Lottery follows a simple 6/59 number format meaning that lottery players must pick 6 numbers from a possible 59. There is no extra number set from which to pick so the UK Lottery is thus a relatively easy lottery to play and win.
To win the UK lottery a player must match his 6 chosen numbers to all 6 numbers drawn from the lottery machine. A further bonus ball is also drawn creating an additional prize tier to reward lottery players who have matched both the bonus ball and five numbers.
Please note: You do not choose the bonus ball. It is an additional ball that is chosen automatically during the draw process.
Owing to the good odds of the UK lottery the jackpot will seldom rollover more than once or twice meaning UK jackpots seldom rise above the 10 million mark. That doesn’t mean that this isn’t an exciting game to play, though. In fact, it remains one of the most popular games in the world.
