They all have a chance

Have your say

I’d like to reassure JD Arnold that each and every ball in all of our National Lottery draws has exactly the same chance of being drawn as any other.

And that’s true for the 59 balls you can pick from for the Lotto draw, 50 for EuroMillions or 39 for Thunderball.

Our operations and processes are subject to the scrutiny of our own internal auditors, independent external auditors, and representatives from our regulator, the Gambling Commission.

So, whether you choose to play 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 on Lotto, or 54, 55, 56, 57, 58 and 59 – or any combination in between – you have exactly the same chance of winning!
