UK Lotto Must Be Won Draws
Following a rule change in November 2018, the UK Lotto introduced Must Be Won draws. A UK Lotto Must Be Won draw happens when the Lotto has rolled over five times. On the next draw, the jackpot must go!
If the jackpot is not won, then the jackpot amount is shared amongst the lower tiers. For example, if you match 5 numbers for second prize, you would normally win £1m. If it is a Must Be Won draw, then you can win £1.2m instead.
