UK Lottery or National Lottery is an accessible state-franchised collection of lottery games in the United Kingdom. Regulated by the Gambling Commission, the lottery is operated by Camelot Group. The organizing body claims that 53 percent of the total money spent on lottery games is set aside for the prize fund while 25 percent goes to good causes. Twenty-one percent is shared by Camelot, the UK government, and retailers.
In 1995, scratch cards were introduced. These scratch cards and lottery tickets can be bought only by individuals of at least 16 years of age. Because lottery tickets are not transferable, commercial syndicates are not permitted to operate in some circumstances. Some games that operate under the brand are Lotto, Thunderball, Lotto Hotpicks, EuroMillions, and Set For Life. Prizes are paid a lump sum and are tax-free.
Uk Lottery results are drawn every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
In 2003, Camelot replaced its Criterion model draw machines for Lotto and Lotto Extra lotteries with Magnum I model machines, however, in 2009, Camelot reacquired its old machines that were named Arthur, Lancelot, Guinevere, and Merlin.
Soon after acquiring new Lotto machines, Camelot started using new tools for Thunderball lottery. In 2008, Camelot announced that hackers attacked its servers. Though the attack was not potent enough to cause any major damage, Camelot, as a precautionary measure, advised players to change their passwords. Most UK lottery draws are broadcasted on national television.
