History of UK Lottery:
|On the 19th of November 1994, one of the greatest Lottery draws was launched, the UK Lottery, with a massive £5,874,770.00 Jackpot size. As the popularity of the game became greater, it extended to a second draw which was implemented on the 5th of February 1997. Since then, the UK Lottery is now drawn on Wednesday evenings and Saturday evenings, a name change occurred in 2002 from the National UK Lottery to the 'Lotto' simply put. UK Lottery drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday night at 21h00 BST. The UK Lotto draw is broadcast live on BBC One.
