Lotto Promotions Prize Capping

Lotto Match 3 to Win £100 Promotion – prize capping

In the 'Match 3 to win £100' Lotto promotion, each winning entry in the Match 3 prize category will receive £100 instead of the usual £30, subject to prize capping.

The amount of money available to top up each winning Lotto entry in the match 3 prize category from £30 to £100 is £17million (the “Promotion Prize Fund”). In the unlikely event that the Promotion Prize Fund is not sufficient to top up each winning Lotto entry in the match 3 prize category by the required £70, then the Lotto promotion prize will be capped and will be less than £100.

How will my capped promotion prize be calculated?

The capped promotion prize payable to each winning entry in the match 3 prize category will be calculated as follows:

  • Each winning entry will receive the £30 it would win if there was no promotion in that Lotto Draw.**
  • The Promotion Prize Fund will be divided by the number of winning entries in the match 3 prize category.
  • The amount calculated under step 2 (the “Capped Top-Up Amount”) will be added to the £30 prize referenced in step 1 and this will be the total prize payable to each winning entry in the match 3 prize category.

**in the very unlikely event that match 3 to match 5 + bonus ball prize capping takes place in accordance with the Lotto Game Procedures, each winning entry in the match 3 prize category may receive less than £30 as a core game prize (the “Capped Match 3 Prize”). The amount payable to each winning Lotto entry in the match 3 prize category in this event will be the Capped Match 3 Prize plus the £70 (or the Capped Top-Up Amount) from the Promotion Prize Fund.
