Hotpicks Match Five

Hotpicks Match Five
Updated: Friday 25th April 2014

It may have launched six years ago in June 2002, but Saturday 19th July, 2008, saw Hotpicks History being made when three people matched five numbers for the first time ever.  Each player wins £130,000 for their efforts.

There were also an unusually high number of match-4 winners (2,000 against a normal 1,000) and of match-3 winners (some 17,000 against a regular 10,000).  This is possibly because all the numbers in the main draw were below 30 and thus part of the "birthday" zone; many people pick numbers from their birthday as their Lottery entries.  Lotto Hotpicks uses the same numbers as the main Lotto draw, even though it is a separate game purchase.
