Lotto was originally called The National Lottery. All prizes of The National Lottery are paid as a lump sum and are tax-free. Of all money spent on National Lottery games, 50% goes to the prize fund, 28% to 'good causes' as set out by Parliament. The National Lottery tickets and scratch cards may be bought only by people of at least 16 years of age. The National Lottery tickets are not transferable, so commercial syndicates.
Players buy tickets with their choice of six different numbers between 1 and 49; there is provision for random numbers to be generated automatically for those who do not wish to choose, known as 'Lucky Dip'.
In the The National Lottery draw, six numbered balls are drawn without replacement from a set of 49 balls numbered from 1 to 49. A further Bonus Ball is also drawn, which affects only players who match five numbers.
Prizes of The National Lottery are awarded to players who match at least three of the six drawn numbers, with prizes increasing for matching more of the drawn numbers. All players who match all six drawn numbers win equal shares of the jackpot; the chance of doing so is 1 in 13,983,816. If four, five, or six balls are matched, the relevant prize is divided equally between all who match that many balls.
The National Lottery draw is conducted on Wednesdays and Saturdays, except that a draw on Christmas Day is moved to Christmas Eve.
