When this lottery game was first launched it was common to see the UK Lotto jackpot frequently pass the £10 million mark, however now things are slightly different. This is down to the fact that there are lower starting jackpots therefore it takes a few consecutive rollovers to actually surpass £10 million. In addition to that the UK Lotto rules state that the jackpot cannot rollover over more than four times, and if it does on the fifth draw if there are still no top prize winners the jackpot will roll down and be scooped up by the next winning prize tier.
