What are the UK Lotto prizes?

The national UK lottery offers 6 different prizes, including the jackpot. The value of the prizes in tiers 5 and 6 are fixed, but the value of prizes in tiers 1-4 depends on the number of tickets sold. If there are multiple winners for any given prize tier, the amount is divided equally between the winners. Check out the UK Lotto prizes in the table below:

What happens if nobody wins the jackpot?

If nobody wins the UK Lotto jackpot, which starts at £2 million (approx. €2.24 million), the jackpot continues to roll over for a maximum of 5 times. The 5th rollover will be a ‘Must Be Won’ lottery, and if nobody wins the jackpot in this instance, a jackpot roll down will take place, in which the jackpot will be distributed amongst all cash winners.
