The lotto is a number match game, generating a random 6-digit winning number sequence. If your digits are in same positions as the digits in the winning number sequence, you win a prize!

For example, if the winning number sequence was 123456, the lottery number 163057 would be a 3-digit winning match; because 3 digits are positioned in the same place in the sequence:


  • 3 digit match = 5 entries into the next draw
  • 4 digit match = £25
  • 5 digit match = £1,000
  • 6 digit match = £25,000

Because it’s a number match game, the odds are fixed. This means that every lottery number has an equal chance of winning a prize:


  • 3 digit match = 1 in 69
  • 4 digit match = 1 in 823
  • 5 digit match = 1 in 18,518
  • 6 digit match = 1 in 1,000,000
