HOW TO CHECK A WIN1

Ask a retailer

It’s best to check yourself before handing it to the Retailer. Most Terminals will make a win sound when your ticket is scanned. Wait for your win receipt if you win on a Draw game. For Scratchcards you can ask for a reprint of the validation slip (except at Scratchcard only stores).

Self check

Some Retailers have interactive screens you can use to check if you’ve won. Some can only check Scratchcards.

Catch the show

Tune into the BBC One Draw show on Saturday for Lotto, Thunderball and HotPicks results. Results for other games are shown at 22:35 on the day of the Draw.

Hit the red button

Use the BBC’s interactive digital TV service to check.
