  2. Pick numbers between 1 and 59 or go with a Lucky Dip® for randomly selected numbers.

  3. Choose the draw days and number of weeks you'd like to play.

  4. You're good to go!

    Play for £1.00

You can play Lotto HotPicks online every day from 6am until 11pm. But remember, to play on a draw day, you'll need to buy your ticket before 7.30pm.
