1. The National Lottery in the UK is the entity responsible for games like Thunderball. Apart from making an array of games available, the National Lottery also generates funds for good causes. Each week, this organization collects about 30 million pounds for the execution of sports, community, environmental and other initiatives. All of the money comes from ticket sales.
2. One of the best aspects of playing UK lotteries like Thunderball is that the prizes aren’t subjected to taxes. If you are an international player, however, you may want to check the applicable regulations in your own country.
3. Players have 180 days from the date of the UK Thunderball drawing to make a prize claim. A prize can be claimed in person from a retailer, from the lottery’s headquarters or via mail. When using the services of an online agent, you’ll be spared from having to deal with such aspects of collecting your prize.
4. The first ever UK Thunderball drawing took place on June 12, 1999. In the very beginning, the game had only one drawing per week – on a Saturday. Many of the original rules changed on May 9, 2010. Before the date, there were 34 numbers to choose among. In addition, players didn’t qualify for prizes after they matched the Thunderball alone. Also, the maximum prize was 250,000 pounds before that date.
5. National Lottery was set up in 1994 and it was transferred for operation to Camelot Group in the same year. The organization’s license has been renewed in 2001 and once again in 2007. Ever since the inception of the lottery, prizes have been paid out in the form of a cash lump sum.
