An estimated prize of £20,000,000 is there to win on Wednesdays' UK Lotto draw.
The UK Lotto jackpot was unclaimed on Saturday 12th March meaning that on Wednesday 16th, there's a prize estimated to be around £20,000,000 to claim. Through services like Online-Lottery-Tickets.com, winners can come from all four corners of the world, although they need to get their tickets purchased by the 7.30 pm local cut-off time.
How to Play
This is as simple as lotteries get, with players just needing to select 6 numbers from a pool of 49, with each attempt costing £2. They don't need to pick any bonus ball, (although one is chosen during the draw), and the jackpot is won just by getting these numbers correct. Players are automatically entered into a Millionaire Raffle with each ticket.
Secondary prizes for matching 5 numbers and the Bonus Ball, or getting 5, 4 or 3 matches will result in a cash prize, while matching just 2 numbers will earn players a free ticket for the next draw.
Millionaire Raffle prizes are a single guaranteed £1 million prize and 20 guaranteed prizes of £20,000 each. Thanks to the regulations under which the UK Lotto operates, all winnings are paid out with no taxes being levied whatsoever.
Online ticket services mean that anyone can enter, and multiple tickets for all the biggest games in the world can be purchased from a single source. Players just need to be aware of their local time zone in relation to where the draw is taking place, with mainland Europe being 1 hour ahead of UK time, and as US summer time has just begun, EST is currently 4 hours behind the UK.
