Play Thunderball

To play Thunderball you must select five main numbers from 1 to 39 and one additional Thunderball number from 1 to 14. If you don’t want to select your own numbers, you can take advantage of a Lucky Dip feature and have them selected at random on your behalf. Like other UK lottery games, you can enter the same set(s) of numbers for several consecutive draws if you want to play in advance.


When do draws take place?

Thunderball draws take place four times a week, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings and entries for the draw are just £1 each. That means every time a Lotto or EuroMillions draw takes place, a Thunderball draw takes place on the same evening.
