Get ready for exciting changes to UK Lotto!
From Saturday 5th October, every line your syndicate plays in the New Lotto game will also receive FREE automatic entry into the New Lotto raffle. Every draw there will be a guaranteed 50 winning entries, each receiving £20,000!

Rollovers are getting more exciting too!
Now when the jackpot rolls, the number of guaranteed raffle winners of £20,000 grows, creating even more winners! (Maximum of 250 when there is a quadruple rollover draw)

Celebrate New Lotto with TWO not to be missed events!
For each of the draws on Saturday 5th and Saturday 12th October 2013 there will be a massive guaranteed jackpot of £10 million.

And that's not all, because on each of these two nights there will be an almost unbelievable...

1,000 raffle winners guaranteed to receive £20,000 each!

In addition, the bottom tier prize will also more than double to £25 for matching three numbers, which means a bigger syndicate share, more regularly for all our members.

In order to accommodate the above, from October 3rd 2013, the cost of an individual UK Lotto ticket at youplayweplay will rise to £3.

Due to the various game options offered by youplayweplay, you are therefore advised subscription costs will be increased, relative to the quantity of UK Lotto tickets contained within.
youplayweplay retains great value for your money, continuing to offer the Lotto Player "most balls for your money" than any other Lottery Syndicate provider online!

It's another great reason to get excited!

Exciting Changes To UK Lotto

Don't miss out – set a reminder!
Lotto will be launching its exciting changes on Saturday 10th October with 25 guaranteed millionaires! Tickets go on sale this Thursday 8th October, 00:01am at youplayweplay so set yourself a reminder.

A new Millionaire Raffle!
From the 8th October, the Lotto raffle will become the Millionaire Raffle with two prize tiers in every draw – one guaranteed £1 million prize and 20 guaranteed prizes of £20,000. The Millionaire Raffle will take place on each Lotto draw day, and 21 raffle numbers will be selected. The £1 million winning raffle number is drawn first, followed by the 20 prizes of £20,000.

Exciting jackpots!
Bigger rolling jackpots means there’s more to play for. The odds of winning a Lotto jackpot will be around 1 in 45 million on the new game. The new Millionaire Raffle will mean you have more chances than ever before to become a millionaire. In fact, the odds of becoming a millionaire on Lotto from the 8th October will be 1 in 10 million, which is better than the odds of winning the jackpot on the current game.

Extra numbers to choose from!
You will now be able to choose 6 numbers from a total of 59 rather than 49.

I want to keep playing my same numbers. Is that ok?
Yes, you can still play your chosen numbers. As with the current game, you will be able to pick any 6 from the available numbers on the Lotto game board. There will just be more to play for!

It's still £3 to play!
The way you play and the price you pay stays the same. You play in exactly the same way as you've always done, match 6 numbers and you'll win the jackpot.

Lotto changed 2 years ago, why is it changing again?
The changes made to Lotto in 2013 were designed to re-invigorate a game which hadn’t been changed in nearly 20 years – and to deliver millions more in prizes and to National Lottery Good Cause projects.

And the great news is that, since the launch of the new game, two years of growth has meant more for National Lottery Good Cause projects than if the game had not changed.

The further changes recently announced, will make the nation’s favourite game even more exciting. They are being introduced as part of the continuous development across all of our games, offering you fresh, exciting prizes on the games you know and love.

It's another great reason to get excited!

Exciting Changes To UK Lotto

Lotto launched its exciting changes on 21st November 2018 by introducing fixed prize tiers to the game so that you will now win larger amounts if you match three, four, or five main numbers. Tickets went on sale from 18th November 2018, 00:01am at youplayweplay.

Same price, same numbers!
The main rules of the game are exactly the same; You still have to select six numbers from 1 to 59 and the cost per play is £3. However, a number of exciting changes have been made to the prize structure.

Jackpots won more often!
As always, the jackpot will get bigger as more people play. The previous jackpot cap of £22 million has been replaced by a rollover limit. Lotto can now rollover 5 times. The 5th rollover becomes a ‘Must Be Won’ draw.

Bigger cash prizes!
All the other prizes are fixed, so you know exactly what you're playing for. You don't even have to win the jackpot anymore to become a millionaire, as matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball will see you rewarded with a £1 million windfall. The ‘Match 5’ and ‘Match 4’ prizes will be set at £1,750 and £140 respectively, far more than you could have previously expected. If you match three main numbers, you will now win £30 rather than £25.

Jackpot Rolldowns!
In a rolldown, the money from the jackpot will be shared out between all the other winners of cash prizes. Previously, the jackpot would just go to the players in the next winning tier, typically one or two ticket holders who matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball. Under the new rules, every prize winner will benefit and you could pick up around £100 just for matching three main numbers.

Millionaire Raffle Comes To An End!
Bigger cash prizes in the main game have replaced the old raffle. The Lotto Millionaire Raffle will no longer be played and the money that went to the raffle will now go towards paying for the bigger prizes available in the main game.

It's another great reason to get excited!
