Although the Lotto HotPicks game is separate from the main UK Lotto draw, it does use the same sequence of numbers which are drawn in the main Lotto game. However, unlike the UK Lotto, HotPicks gives the player a choice on how many numbers they'd like to predict.

How to Play
Draws take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays alongside the UK Lotto game. There are five options in HotPicks and players can choose Pick One, Pick Two, Pick Three, Pick Four or Pick Five with prizes awarded for matching one or more of the numbers drawn in the main Lotto game. The more numbers a player correctly predicts, the greater the prize. The big difference between Lotto and HotPicks is that the ticket holder must get all of their predictions correct to win a prize. For example, if a player chooses to play just one number, and that number is subsequently drawn in the Lotto, the player wins a prize. If the player correctly predicts two numbers, then the prize increases. However, if a player predicts two numbers but only one of them is drawn, they do not win a prize.
