Contribute to the big lottery fund while having fun.
Just as in many other countries, states and provinces, the U.K. National Lottery too raises money through the sale of lottery tickets. The Big Lottery Fund is the largest distributor of lottery tickets and contributes around 50% of the money that is raised by the National Lottery.
This money is spent to uplift the weaker sections of society in the form of providing education, improving health and the environment and other important purposes such as providing money for the Children’s Play Council that aims to improve infrastructure to children-related projects. If you are a resident of the U.K or another part of Europe, then you too can contribute to the Big Lottery while having fun playing the various forms of lotto.
One of the most famous lotto games in the U.K since its inception in 1994 is lotto 649. This exciting game is played by choosing 6 numbers between 1 and 49. If all your chosen numbers turn out to be winners on the day or rather night of reckoning, then the multi-million pound jackpot money could be yours provided another player has not punched in the same winning combination. Another game of great interest is the England Thunderball where you will need to choose 5 numbers between 1 and 34. The odds of winning the jackpot for this wonderful game are 1:278,256, which is quite reasonable as compared to other lotteries.
EuroMillions is another game where the odds are stacked against the players but the jackpot amounts are high enough to tempt even cynical players to try their luck. In this game you will need to choose 5 numbers between 1 and 50 and another 2 numbers between 1 and 9. Get all the 7 numbers right and you could be looking at a minimum jackpot of around 5 million pounds provided you are the sole winner. Results are held on every Friday night and if you have finished your supper and are sitting anxiously with your favorite vodka or any other drink in your hand, then you could even try surfing away to www.AbsintheKit.com. This site has various mind-opening Absinthe essences that could perfectly compliment your drink and help relax your mind.
In order to win any of the above lotto games, you will still need to follow some strategies. These strategies could boost your chances of winning the jackpot or other substantial prizes. These prize winning tips are available online or in the form of books or CDs. If you are hesitant to play alone, then try to team up with other players by joining a club or a syndicate. This strategy could pay a little less in the form of shared earnings but teach you valuable tips along the way.
Thus, you can play any version of lotto in the U.K. by either buying tickets or even through online sites. The Big Lottery Fund will ensure that even as you have loads of fun playing these exquisite games, a significant part of the money reaches out to the depressed part of society that acts to improve their overall standard of living.
