The leading lottery game of the United Kingdom is the UK lottery, a twice-weekly drawing with possible winners every Wednesday and Saturday. The UK Lottery is a 6 from 29 lottery, which means that the jackpot winner has to match all six numbers to collect the prize. Smaller prizes are awarded to players whose tickets match 3, 4, or 5 of the 6 winning numbers.
Every player must have a ticket. Most participants in the UK Lottery get their tickets for authorized national lottery retailers in person. Mark you selections on a play slip, and then give the play slip to the retailer. The retailer then generates a ticket for you with your selected numbers on it.
An alternative way to play the Uk lottery is via the World Wide Web. To use the Internet option, you enter lottery numbers online and are then issues a “virtual” ticket. The virtual ticket arrives by email. You may print it out, or access your numbers by a link included in the email. It is both safe and legal to purchase lottery tickets online.
Make sure you use an authorized national lottery web site when you buy your tickets, keep your user name and password protected and log out after you purchase your tickets. This helps to ensure that your personal information is protected and safe.
Whether you buy your tickets online or at a retailer, it is not essential that you choose your own numbers. Either online or in person, you can use “Lucky Dip” and the UK Lottery computer will select all six numbers for you randomly.
Play slips indicate which lottery is desired, whether Wednesday, Saturday, or both. The UK Lottery allows you to use the same set of numbers both nights, and for up to eight weeks per play.

When you buy your ticket in person, make sure the ticket you get back has: Your chosen numbers or the Lucky Dip numbers, the days you want to play, the number of weeks you want to play, and your selected drawing dates. Every valid ticket must also have a visible bar-coded serial number and an unticked void box.
In order to claim a winning prize, write your name and address on the lottery ticket. You cannot claim a prize without the ticket. Then take the ticket to any national lottery retailer. If no one wins, the prize is rolled into the next drawing.
