Lottery Alerts

The Results app allows you to set up custom lottery notifications for Lotto, EuroMillions, Thunderball and Set For Life, so you can always stay up to date with the latest results, rollovers, special events and Superdraws, no matter where you are. Unlike some other email and text alerts, you are in complete control of which information you receive, and how often.

How to Set Up a Lottery Notification

Once you have downloaded the app, just follow these simple steps to set up your chosen alerts:

More Menu

Tap the menu button (the three horizontal lines) at the top of the screen.

More Menu

Select 'Notifications' from the menu.

More Menu

Select the lottery you would like to set up alerts for, or whether you want an alert for special events.

More Menu

In your chosen lottery’s sub-menu, turn on the alerts you would like to receive.

Your alerts for each lottery are completely customisable, with a range of five notification types to choose from. Here are the kinds of alert you can expect to use:

Latest Results

Receive notifications as soon as the winning numbers are available, and also when prize breakdowns have been updated to show prize amounts and the number of winners. You can choose which draws you receive notifications for; for example, if you only play EuroMillions on Fridays, you can turn off notifications for Tuesday draws.

Jackpot Notifications

Looking to win big? You can set your notifications to alert you when a jackpot reaches a certain amount. For example, the app can let you know whenever the Lotto jackpot is above £10 million or when the EuroMillions jackpot hits £100 million. Simply use the slider in the 'Jackpot Notifications' section to set the jackpot amount to your preferred level.

Rollover Updates

Similar to Jackpot Notifications, this allows you to set up an alert for when a lottery has gone a set number of draws without a jackpot winner. For example, you could choose to be notified every time Lotto reaches five rollovers and a 'Must Be Won' draw. Set the slider in the 'Rollover Notifications' section to your preferred setting.

Reminder to Pick Numbers

You can set a reminder for you to pick your numbers ahead of a draw, to make sure you never miss out on winning a prize. Hit the 'Add Reminder' button and then select the day of the week and time of day that you would like to receive the alert. To discard an alert you have set up, just hit the dustbin icon next to it.

Special Events

Accessible from the main Notifications menu, the Special Events alert will notify you whenever a special draw is scheduled, whether a EuroMillions Superdraw or a one-off Lotto event.
