Lotto HotPicks

Hot Picks

Lotto HotPicks is a supplementary Lotto game that uses the numbers from the regular draw. Players must declare how many balls they intend to match in order to win; the greater the number, the bigger the potential prize. Cautious players who successfully match one ball win £5 whereas more daring ticket holders who correctly match five balls win the top prize of £130,000.


Lotto HotPicks is changing! From October 2015, the Lotto HotPicks top prize will increase from £130,000 to £350,000! To find out more visit the Changes to Lotto page.

Players do not have to enter the main Lotto draw in order to play Lotto HotPicks.

Choosing Your Lotto HotPicks Numbers

Lotto HotPicks costs £1 per game and players must decide which game they would like to play (Pick 1, Pick 2, Pick 3, Pick 4 or Pick 5). If they fail to match the exact amount of balls that they declared, they do not win a prize. For example, if you bought a Pick 3 game and only matched two of the Lotto numbers drawn, you would not win £40 (the prize for picking and matching two numbers).
