Many lottery draws make many winners, and many winners make plenty of lottery news, which is what we aim to bring you on these pages. There is hardly a week goes by without a news story about a big winner, good causes and unclaimed prizes and you can catch up on all the big stories here on our news pages. It is little wonder there’s so much news, with so many different lottery games being played each week. From the flagship Lotto and big Euro Millions draw to the smaller side draws like Lotto Plus 5 and Thunderball, there is news breaking every day and you can catch up with it all here.
Here you can keep track of all the upcoming rollovers and big draws and you can make sure you know what’s happening in the next few draws so you don’t miss any impressive jackpots. There’s also news about unclaimed prizes to keep track of too and we’ll often bring you reminders of prizes about to expire and winners who have not come forward to claim. When new games are launched and if the rules of any lottery change, we’ll bring you all of the details.
