 New Lotto Last 30 WeeksWhat Is It
 
The UK national Lotto (which used to be called Lottery for sensible reasons) is changing fundamentally in October this year. The big difference is that the numbers from which you make your six selections will go up from 1 to 49, increasing to 1 to 59.

The Lotto jackpot can roll until it reaches or exceeds £22 million. If it isn't won when it reaches or exceeds this amount, the entire jackpot will roll to the next Lotto draw and must be won in that draw. If no player matches all six main numbers drawn, then this massive prize rolls down to the next prize level (five main numbers plus the bonus ball, then five main numbers, etc), as specified in the Lotto Game Procedures, until there is a winner or winners.

 What is it? Last Few WeeksNew Lotto
 

The lottery is a great game often played by many members of the family. Just like many bingo games the main object of the game is simply to pick the right numbers. If you're playing the national lottery in the UK then you are playing a 6/49 lottery draw. So you are if you are in Canada. This simply means you get to chose 6 numbers from a choice of 49. In Switzerland its 6/45 and in New Zealand its 6/40. The differences allow for how many people the organisers think will buy the tickets and therefore win the jackpot.

Prize monies are distributed differently throughout. In New York for instance, 70% goes to the jackpot and if you get 5+bonus (pretty difficult), you get a measly $10,000!
There is a consistent theme however, they all take around 50% out of the pool for "good" causes.

 
 Is it a good bet? What is it?Money Breakdown
 
No. But hold on, you didn't expect it to be. Only 50% of the money spent on tickets is returned in the UK lottery. However only around 28% of it goes to "good" causes, whatever they are. You can think of it as a small crack at a big pot and some good gets done in the world whether you win or lose.

The worrying thing is the 22% or so that gets eaten by the ticket sellers, Camelot and the government. We call this the 'vig', or the 'juice' in the U.S. This is huge. The inefficiency of the system costs the decent punters of Britain around £14m per week. Lets hope that iPurchase, or buying tickets on the Internet, changes that.

Special Rules

  • Top Up Bin: means money carried over for special promotions like guaranteed jackpots
  • Rollover : If there is no jackpot winner, then the entire jackpot prize pool is "rolled over" to the next draw.
  • No jackpot winners : If there is a 4th consecutive draw where the jackpot wasn't won, the jackpot prize pool is shared amongst the 5+bonus winners of the 4th draw or amongst the 5-match winners of the 4th draw if there are no 5+bonus winners.
  • No 5+bonus winners : If there are no 5+bonus winners then the 5+bonus prize pool is added to the jackpot prize pool for the same draw. (Providing it isn't the 4th rollover week) (It happened once)
  • No 5 matches : If there are no 5-match winners, the prize pool is added to the 4-match prize pool for the same draw.

 Is it fair? Lotto RaffleStrategy
 
Fair, now there's a thing. Tough call, but here we think that only 28% of money going to good causes and only 50% being returned to the good people who contributed is a bit hard to swallow. Not only that but the distribution of money is there solely to fuel the desire to play again. Hardly noble.

How do they do it? Well they give £10 to each person who's ticket matches 3 balls to distribute money widely in the hope that those winners will play it straight back. Its the oldest trick in the book. Next they highlight a really big jackpot prize.

We have to be fair to Camelot and say that the true odds of matching 3 balls would mean paying the punter £11.33 and so the tenner they offer isn't at all bad in comparison to the other prizes.
However catching 5 numbers is enough to make you want to kill yourself. (Please don't) The jackpot on the other hand actually pays out over the odds, as if those people weren't already fortunate enough. (See Odds and Strategy)
 
 Top Tips Is it fair?Fun
 

You would be right in thinking that any combination of numbers is as likely to come up on draw night as any other. So therefore there is no point in making a special point of using systems or checking numbers that haven't come up for a while, unless that process adds to your enjoyment.

Question: So is there anything we can do? Well the answer is yes, there is something that you can do to maximize the money you win when you win.

A crazy day in January 1995 when 133 people won the jackpot meant they picked up a measly £122,510 each. This was no fluke, it was because the numbers fell into a regular pattern on the lottery form, a pattern that people use to create their six numbers in a flash at the side of the terminal.

This gives us a clue as to what to do and its a trick that professional gamblers use all the time to gain an advantage in any system where a pool of money gets distributed to a few winners. (like betting on horses) Camelot rather strangely refuses to publish details of players choices but we can get a good understanding of players habits from snippets that they have released and from lotteries around the world.

Basically, people are so lazy in creating an original set of numbers that what comes out of their brains goes to show how stupid humans are. For instance, some players chose the sequence 1,2,3,4,5,6 in the belief that no one else would think of such a crazy thing. Trust me brother, more than 10,000 tickets are bought with that combination every weekend!!! If it ever comes up, those lucky winners will have won around £1000. Just about enough to buy that gun and point it to their heads.

Many other sequences have way above average subscription. Last weeks numbers, last weeks plus or minus one, consecutive numbers, equally spaced numbers, famous peoples' birth dates, nice patterns, etc....... .

Top Tips

1. Go against all those things mentioned above and try and include high numbers, especially above 31 which rules out most dates from getting in. It won't just benefit you on the jackpot, but also if you match 4 or 5 or 5+bonus then your payouts will be that much more than average. Happy hunting.

2. Play on Wednesdays only. There are the same number of raffle ticket winners on Wednesday as Saturday but there are half as many tickets bought on a Wednesday so you are twice as likely to win a raffle prize on Wednesday and all the other odds are the same. Plus, if you do win the jackpot you are more likely to be winning on your own for the same reason! You are improving your odds from 600,000 to 1 down to about 350,000 to 1 to win a raffle prize.

 
 Fun StrategyGood Causes
 

If you want have a game of your own without giving money away to the lost causes, I mean good causes, then you can. Try running a paris-mutual pool amongst your friends, like a mini lottery. Its easy and you can adjust the game to suit the number of players. Here's how;

  • First, you don't need to know exactly how many people are playing but a rough guide will do.
  • Second, you don't need to know how much they are going to play for, but for sense make the minimum bet £1 and the maximum £10.
  • Third, decide who is going to run the thing and split the pool and make the decisions.

And now to the game:

Each player decides how many people are going to win the Jackpot on draw night and writes that number with their name on paper (Note: Zero is a number). Fold it. Put the amount bet on the outside of the folded paper. Show the amount written to operator, pay them and put the paper in the draw box..

When the number of jackpot winners is declared, open the box and see who got it right. (If no one, roll it over or give them their money back) If there's one winner, they get it all. If there's two or more, you split the pool pro-rata according to the original bet size.

Now to Jazz it up, you can allow betting (by the original players) after the draw has been made for about ten minutes (so they can't find out the result). This gives people the chance to use their heads and think how 'unusual' the draw numbers are. Good Luck. Also, the whole thing can be done after the draw (10mins!).

(If there's a lot of people, like 50 or more, then work with the number of bonus prize winners)

Lotto Plus 5 Good CausesPast Results
 
The first Lotto Plus 5 draw took place on Sunday 13th February 2011.
The last Lotto Plus 5 draw took place on Tuesday 1st October 2013.
 
Lotto Plus 5 is five daily draws for your main Lotto numbers commencing the day after the Lotto draw for an extra £1.

Lotto Plus 5 draws take place between Lotto draw days - on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays and results are available from around 8pm. When you choose to play Lotto Plus 5, the five Lotto Plus 5 draws you're entered into are those starting the day after the main Lotto draw you've selected.

Plus 5 your Saturday Lotto numbers and you'll be entered into five Lotto Plus 5 draws starting from Sunday onwards. Plus 5 your Wednesday Lotto numbers and you'll be entered into five Lotto Plus 5 draws starting from Thursday onwards. (Note that, if you Plus 5 BOTH your Saturday and Wednesday Lotto numbers on the same play slip, you'll be entered into five Lotto Plus 5 draws starting from the day after the next Lotto draw)


Match & Win Prize
6 main numbers £250,000
Match 5 plus bonus £25,000
Match 5 £250
Match 4 £25
Match 3 £2.50


So each day you are paying 20p to play this game with your original numbers, a fifth of the normal price. If you Match 3 you will be paid a fourth of the normal prize so it is a better value bet. Match 4 averages at £73 so in fact you are getting a third of the prize for only a fifth of the cost, again a better bet. But if you match 6 then you receive about one ninth of the average jackpot (£2.3 million in the last 6 months). That is much worse.
