Great British Jackpot Rules

Great British Jackpot is our lotto betting game that gives you everything you love about UK's Lotto.

Great British Jackpot lets you bet on the outcome of the Switzerland's Loto Express draws while enjoying the familiarity and jackpot values of UK's Lotto. You select numbers in the same way as UK's Lotto players and the result of your bet is decided by Loto Express. Great British Jackpot has the same odds as UK's Lotto.

Great British Jackpot draws Wednesday and Saturday evenings and usually concludes by 23:00 Central European Time (CET). This is normally 22:00 UK time.

Am I betting on UK's Lotto?

No. Betting on UK's Lotto is not permitted in the UK. That's why we've come up with an alternative where we offer the same familiar betting format but base it on Loto Express, an accredited World Lottery Association (WLA) draw.

How are numbers generated?

Loto Express draws 6 numbers from 1 - 80 every 5 minutes. Starting at 22:40 CET, we use every unique number drawn between 1 and 59 until we have 6 numbers.

If there aren't enough qualifying numbers by 23:00 CET, we'll continue qualifying the remaining numbers the next morning at 06:00 CET, when Loto Express resumes drawing every 5 minutes.

How to play and win

To make a bet:

A line bet consists of 6 different numbers from a single pool of numbers from 1 to 59. You can choose your own numbers or use quick pick to have numbers selected for you.

Bet options:

You can:

  • Add line bets to your bet slip.
  • Bet upcoming draws with the future draws option, subject to availability.
  • Boost your line bets up to 32 times, subject to availability.

To win:

The objective is to match the numbers for each individual line bet to the numbers drawn in Switzerland's Loto Express draw, as described previously.

  • 6 main numbers are drawn and 1 separate Bonus Ball is drawn from the same number pool.
  • Matching all 6 numbers in one line bet wins the jackpot.
  • If one of your numbers matches the Bonus Ball, you can win by also matching exactly 2, 3, 4, or 5 main numbers in the same line bet.
  • You can only win 1 prize (the highest matching prize tier) for each line bet.

See below for all matching combinations.

How to check your results

We will make results available as soon as possible after the Loto Express draw has taken place. You will find all draw details by going to My Buys.

Most prizes will be credited to your account immediately. Bigger wins in the top prize tiers may be subject to additional verification procedures. If you haven't heard from us directly, please check your bet ticket for more information and wait a few hours for your account to be credited.
