Ticket 1 : 07-17-23-36-41-44
Ticket 2 : 07-13-17-26-41-42
Ticket 3 : 10-11-14-16-23-30
Ticket 4 : 02-15-24-35-39-49
Ticket 5 : 07-10-17-34-36-45

$28 Million super-draw!  (Guaranteed jackpot)

For those who don't know much about UK Lotto, it is one of the best in the world.  All winnings - including the jackpot - are paid tax-free, lump-sum cash.  Also, because it's a 6/49 game, the odds of winning the jackpot are only 1 in 14M.  Matching 3 of 6 gets you almost $20!  4 of 6 is about $120!  And so on...

I'm used some of my winnings from El Gordo to play.

    ~$20 for a 3 of 6 match and Ohio is promoting their 649 game by offering a free Quick Pick with annuity for a 3 of 6 match, it's a wonder that the U.K. have any money left over for their charities.  Ohio normally doesn't pay anything for a match 3 and odds are that won't change even with a free QP.

        Good luck to you! I think I would stick to the lottery here in the states, instead of playing a lottery game from over sears Online. 5 tickets, it costs $4.00 including service charges. I think all lottery winnings should be tax free, it's not something we work for. Minimum order is 5 tickets ($20.00) ? I can get 20.00 worth of Mega Millions tickets and it will only cost me that same exact amount. Maybe one day I will try it out, until then, it's Mega Millions for me! 

        Have you won anything playing these Online games, todd?

          Kristin, I think those tickets are worth about $2 per play in U.S. currency.  I see one of the Canadian lottery is $2 per play now also.  Some State lotteries have considered during the same thing, but I hope not too soon because I like the games even better when they were 2 plays per $1.

            Anyway for a state to gain more money from the gamblers.  As if they don't gain enough money now! I think it should stay as it has always been $1.00 per play. If they ever do happen to change the amount per play in a few or all state big game lotteries, such as Powerball or Mega Millions for instance, I wonder if people will throw as much money into the pot as they did with $1.00 per play? It would be nice to see! I wouldn't. It would be too much money in my pocket book to play double the amount per play, than what it has before.

            2 plays per $1.? Your lottery you play must be different.

              There are not any 2 plays for $1 any more in Ohio, that ended over 15 years ago.  They now have scratch off tickets for $10 and up.  I think New York's 6/59 game is 2 plays for $1 yet.

                Kristin,

                I have defintely won online.  In fact all my UK plays are with money I won on El Gordo on July 3rd.

                If you're ever going to check out the UK Lotto, now's the time.  It's like playing your state lottery at a $100 million jackpot level.

                Also, it's a bad comparison to make to Mega Millions ("$20 worth of tickets").  Mega Millions has odds of 1 in 135 million to win the jackpot, and the UK Lotto is 1 in 14 million.

                  I don't recommend NY Lotto regardless of cost per game.

                    That UK lotto is like Massmillions 6/49. It is still to hard to spen 2$ a ticket. Also the whole point of this game is that even if u dont win anything, your state will win so its good for you anyway. If u spend you money in uk u dont gain anything, unless u hit the jackpot.

                      tony2222,

                      I have never once bought a lottery ticket thinking that it helps give money to the state.  If I had my way the state would get ZERO and the whole prize would go to the prize pool.  I would rather have the state cut back on some of its costly programs rather than taking money from the lottery.

                      Comparing the UK Lotto to any Massachusetts game is a bad comparison, because the UK Lotto prizes are very high and all-cash.

                      It is actually rather easy for me to spend $2 a ticket for UK Lotto, especially knowing that the lowest prize - for matching just 3 numbers - is going to get me almost $20.  How in the heck can you compare that to Mass Millions, which doesn't pay anything for 3 of 6?  ("Free ticket")

                        How often does UK Lotto get this high?
