About the UK National Lottery

The UK National Lottery is, first and foremost, the biggest cash-winning event in the country. Since its origin in 1994, it's been awarded a whopping £75 billion worth of prizes. It's also the reason more than 5700 people can say they are millionaires or even multimillionaires.

These UK National Lottery winners have certainly benefited in a big way. One of the most significant advantages of winning is receiving the money in a lump sum; best of all is it’s tax-free. There are seven different varieties of games available for your indulgence.
