Saturday nights changed forever when the Lotto was introduced back in 1994.
Since then, it has become the nation’s favourite game, played by millions across the UK.
The flagship Lotto game has also undergone a number of changes, including the addition of a Wednesday draw in February 1997 and the introduction of the Lotto Raffle in October 2013.
A new prize structure was introduced in November 2018, bumping the second prize up to £1million and limiting the number of jackpot rollovers to five consecutive draws.
On Saturday, January 9, 2016, two winning ticket holders shattered a 20-year-old record as they split a Lotto jackpot of £66million, with each player receiving £33million.
Another huge prize was given away the following month when a single player landed £32.5million on Saturday February 13, 2016.
Now, the National Lottery runs several different games across the week.
Other games you can play include Euromillions, Thunderball and Set for Life.
