Take a look at some of these fun lottery games played in the past:
- Lotto Plus 5 - Players with tickets for the main Lotto game could pay an additional fee and use the same numbers for Lotto Plus 5, which took place on days when the Lotto wasn’t drawn. The game ran from 2011 to early October 2013 and offered a top prize of £250,000.
- Daily Play - This game required players to match seven numbers to win the jackpot and also offered a Lucky Dip ticket for a subsequent draw to anyone who failed to match a single number. Daily Play was launched in September 2003 and ended in May 2011. It had a top prize of £30,000.
- Dream Number - Players had to match a seven-digit code in the order in which it was drawn. There were prizes for each number correctly matched rising to a jackpot of £500,000 for matching all seven. Dream Number was introduced as a replacement for Lotto Extra in July 2006 and ended in February 2011.
- Lotto Extra - Introduced in November 2000, Lotto Extra was like the main Lotto draw, but the only chance of winning was by matching all six numbers - there were no lower-tier prizes. The jackpot could rise to £50 million. The game ended in July 2006.
- Lotto 49 to 1 - Players who were selected to play had the opportunity to win £50,000 on Lotto 49 to 1.

The game was played in October 2013 to celebrate a round of changes to Lotto.
- Play Monday - A short-lived rival to Lotto which guaranteed a jackpot winner in each draw. If no one correctly matched the winning line, then the player or players closest to it won the money.

- GeoLotto - players picked geographical positions on a map in the hope of winning the weekly jackpot of £1 million.
