What Is The Great British Jackpot Lotto?

Lottomart's Great British Jackpot takes everything you love about the UK and bundles it into a Union Jack-shaped lotto draw! Although results get decided by the underlying Swiss Loto Express draw, players pick their numbers like in the UK's Lotto draw. Jackpot amounts are also comparable to the UK's Lotto draw, with the minimum being £2m in Wednesday draws and £3.8m in Saturday draws. Even the odds of winning a prize - 1 in 9.2 - are the same.

How does betting on the Great British Jackpot differ from buying a ticket in the draw?

One big difference between betting on a lottery at Lottomart and buying a physical ticket is that you save yourself a trip to the shop with the former! Another difference is the added features and bonuses that lottery betting at an online casino like Lottomart brings. For example, you can purchase multiple bet tickets at reduced prices, while Lottomart's exclusive Boost feature can increase the chances of winning a prize (more on that later).

If you want to find out more about lottery betting and what it entails here at Lottomart, check out our main Lotto page.

How do I check the Great British Jackpot results?

Our top priority is to ensure that draw results are available promptly via two reminders, one as a prompt at the bottom of the Lottomart app and another as an email sent directly to you. All the relevant draw details are in the "My Buys" section in the top-right corner of the screen.

In most cases, prizes are swiftly credited without unnecessary delays. However, additional verification procedures and adjustments may happen for significant wins in the top prize tiers. Even then, your account is usually credited within a few hours, even without direct communication from us.

If you need further clarifications or additional information, your bet ticket can be a valuable point of reference as well.

How do I boost my chances of winning the Great British Jackpot?

The quick answer is using Lottomart's proprietary Boost feature. Easy and free to use, it can boost Great British Jackpot line bets by a maximum of 32x times. At this level, a £5.3m jackpot becomes a £165.6K jackpot. In return, the chances of winning the jackpot increase to 97.4%!

How To Bet On The Great British Jackpot In The UK?

Betting on the Great British Jackpot is simple. The first step is to register for a Lottomart account. The second is to navigate to the Lotto tab on the website or mobile app and select the GREAT BRITISH thumbnail. This houses the lotto draw details: rules, prizes, and more. Each line bet is £2, while 5 Quick Picks can be purchased for £10.

Betting requires picking 6 numbers from a pool of 1- 59 via the Quick Pick function or manually picking the numbers. 6 main numbers and 1 separate Bonus number get drawn from the same number pool. Winning the jackpot requires matching all 6 numbers. However, if one of your numbers matches the Bonus one, you can still win a prize if you also match 2, 3, 4, or 5 main numbers in the same line bet.

When does the Great British Jackpot draw take place?

The Great British Jackpot draws normally occur every Wednesday and Saturday around 21:40 UK time.

How to play and win

To make a bet:

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.
