Thunderball is drawn four times a week, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. There are nine prize tiers in every draw, from a fixed £3 for matching the Thunderball alone to the jackpot of £500,000. You do not have to share the top prize, as everyone who matches all five main numbers and the Thunderball wins half a million pounds. Take part online or at authorised National Lottery retailers up until 7:30pm on the day of the draw.
