This is how it works
The National Lottery draw launched in 1994.
Tickets are on sale from most UK newsagents and supermarkets from 8am to 11pm on most days, except when there’s a draw, in which case tickets can be purchased until an hour before.
Each one costs £2. Lotto draws take place on Wednesday and Saturday evenings from approximately 7.45pm.
To play, you simply select five numbers between 1 and 50, plus two Lucky Star numbers from 1-12.
As well as changing lives of the prize winners, the National Lottery funds projects all over the UK.
Every week part of the ticket sales goes towards good causes.
Players have to be 16 and over and physically in the UK or Isle of Man.
If you really can’t choose and you’re finding the pressure too much, you can always select a Lucky Dip and let the machine choose a random selection for you.
