Important Changes to Uk lotto prize structure
From November 21, the terrible 5 plus B.B. pittance of a prize will be a thing of the past. In response to customer complaints Camelot are rehashing the way prizes are allocated to give more to the lower tiers.

Highlights.
Guaranteed 1 Million pound 5 plus B.B. prize.
All lower tier prizes FIXED at higher values.
After 4 rollovers the next jackpot prize must be won and cascades down to be shared with ALL lower tiers except the match 2 win.
No more raffles.
The cost of a ticket remains the same

Hi Frank
Many thanks for the rundown of lotto's new prize money Mate.
At least if I win, It will be worth it.
some of the 5 + bonus win's were mega bad, that's for sure!

Best Regards
Len

RE: Important Changes to Uk lotto prize structure
Now that the new structure is implemented and under way here is prize table and the odds.

Match 6* / Jackpot odds 1:45,057,474
9.79% of sales for a Lotto Draw is allocated to the Jackpot

All of the amount available for the Jackpot in the previous Lotto Draw may also be added to the allocation for the Jackpot if there are no Winning Lotto Entries in the Jackpot category in that previous Lotto Draw (subject to Section (D)(2) and Prize capping)
Prize capping is an emergency measure used when the number of winners means that there are insufficient funds to maintain the fixed prize structure.

Match 5* + Bonus Ball Odds 1:7,509,579
Fixed prize £1,000,000

Match 5* odds 1:144,415
Fixed Prize £1,750

Match 4*. Odds 1:2,180
Fixed prize. £140


. Match 3* Odds 1:96.2
Fixed prize £30


Match 2*. Odds 1:10.3
Fixed prize One Lotto Lucky Dip (with a value of £2)


The odds against winning any cash are about one in 95. Cry
