The National Lottery has been most firmly established in Britain since 1994, when then Prime Minister John Major approved its national status.
All prize money won is paid to the lucky winner as a lump sum, and is tax free. For every pound spent on a lottery ticket, 50p goes toward the prize fund, 28p is donated to charities and good causes, 12p to the UK Government and 5p to ticket issuers as commission.
To play and take part in a lottery draw or scratch card, players must be 16 years or over. To date, The National Lottery have created over 2,800 millionaires in Britain.
