National Lottery Guesstimation

National Lottery Guesstimation
Updated: Monday 20th July 2015

National Lottery: Guesstimation is a BBC One television game show that is broadcast every Saturday night. If you haven’t seen the show before then we can tell you that it involves two families competing head-to-head over three rounds and that the victorious family wins a fantastic prize. We can also tell you that on Saturday 8 August digital TV lottery viewers will be able to participate in the show via the red button!

This interactive feature will allow viewers to play along with the television game show contestants, and it is one of a series of BBC ‘red button’ innovations that will take place across the BBC schedule in August. Whether the Guesstimation red button feature will be a genuine one-off or something that occurs again in the future isn’t known, so it makes sense to participate whilst you can!

If you want to make the most of the Guesstimation red button opportunity, you could turn Saturday 8 August into your very own Lottery-fest by purchasing lottery tickets online for each of the draws that take place on Saturday night, namely Lotto, Thunderball and Dream Number.

Dream Number is a much overlooked lottery game, but the Guesstimation show on Saturday 8 August will reveal exactly how Dream Number is helping to raise funds for the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympics venues. If you buy a Dream Number ticket you could win a jackpot of £500,000, and whether you win or lose you’ll be helping to support a very good cause, so it looks like a very good deal to us!

Those of you who do decide to make this Saturday a special occasion and buy tickets for all of the lottery games taking place might need some inspiration for your entries. If so, take a look at out Lottery Statistics page and you’ll see which numbers come up most often, which numbers come up least often and which numbers are most overdue according to the last time they were drawn.

However you choose your numbers, be sure to tune into National Lottery:  Guesstimation and press the red button on your digital TV remote control to enjoy the experience as an interactive viewer. It won’t increase your odds of winning a jackpot, but it will certainly increase your enjoyment of the show!
