About Lotto HotPicks

Bigger prizes for fewer numbers

What is Lotto HotPicks?

Lotto HotPicks gives you the chance to win bigger prizes for picking and matching fewer Lotto numbers. The increased number of Lotto balls from 49 to 59 means you have more numbers to pick from plus much bigger prizes on offer! Matching 5 Lotto numbers now wins you £350,000 and you could win £800 for matching 3 Lotto numbers! Lotto HotPicks costs £1 per play and the Lotto draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday.

How do I play?

Decide how many numbers you want to pick and select the corresponding 'Pick' game. Enter the appropriate amount of numbers for the game you've chosen, from 1 to 59, or pick Lucky Dip® for a random selection. You can play up to 5 lines of numbers on each play slip and buy up to 10 play slips at a time. Then, choose the draws and weeks you'd like to play. You can play up to 8 weeks in advance.

You can play Lotto HotPicks online every day from 8am (sometimes earlier) until 11.00pm. But remember: Lotto HotPicks ticket sales close from 7.30pm on Wednesday and from 7.30pm to 9pm on Saturday for that evening's draw. To play Lotto HotPicks on the day, you'll need to buy your ticket before 7.30pm.

You can also spread the excitement of playing Lotto HotPicks by starting a syndicate.
