Download Module

This native Joomla 2.5 module provides you with the latest UK National Lottery, Euro Millions and Health Lottery results in your Joomla powered website. You can see a demo of the module on the right hand side of this page. It's been designed to pick up the styling of the template that you use on your site, so should fit right in after the quick install.

Overview

Lotto Hideout is one of the premier UK Lottery portals and we spend a great deal of time and effort collecting the latest lottery results for our visitors and members. As such we decided to offer a simple widget that can be installed on other websites allowing their members to enjoy timely lottery results too.

All results are delivered via an xml feed which is cached by the module every 6 hours to ensure you always have the latest results (and our servers don't crash!). This feed is then parsed and displayed via a Joomla 2.5 view which is totally customisable via template overrides. This service is provided totally free and new results are published as soon as they become available.

The results that are available are Lotto, Euro Millions, Thunderball, Lotto Hotpicks, Plus5 and Health Lottery.
