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 – pick and match just 3 Lotto numbers to win a guaranteed £450. 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 49, 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.
