How to play
Tickets are on sale from most UK newsagents and supermarkets from 8am to 11pm on most days, except when there’s a draw, in which case tickets can be bought up until an hour before the game starts.
Tickets costs £2 and draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday evenings.
To play, you simply select five numbers between 1 and 50, plus two Lucky Star numbers from 1-12.
As well as changing lives of the prize winners, the National Lottery funds projects all over the UK.
Players have to be 16 or over and physically in the UK or Isle of Man.
If you really can’t choose and you’re finding the pressure too much, you can always select a Lucky Dip and let the machine choose a random selection for you.
