The UK National Lottery was started in 1994 by, then, Prime Minister John Major, and is run by Camelot Group. Some of the proceeds go towards good causes, many of which are identified as such by the UK Parliament.

The first jackpot was £5,874,778 split between seven winners, all of whom matched the numbers 3 5 14 22 30 44 (10).

The largest jackpot ever won by a single ticket on the National Lottery (known as Lotto since 2002) was £22,590,829 in June 1995. Larger jackpot pools have been available since, but no single ticket has claimed more than this amount. The largest pool to date is the £42,008,610 split between three winners in 1996.

Prior to it's re-branding, the broadcast of the Lottery draw regularly included a slot with 'Mystic Meg', an astrologer and alleged psychic.

The game involves selecting 6 numbers from a range of 1-49 and the odds of matching all six are 1 in 13,983,815. Matching 3 numbers traditionally wins £10 and the odds of walking away with a winning ticket are 1 in 54.
