If they do not successfully match all of their selected numbers, then no prize is awarded. As well as tickets for the draw games, the National Lottery also sells scratchcards.
Introduced in , they are small pieces of card where an area has been covered by a thin layer of opaque latex that can be scratched off.
The generic scratchcard requires the player to match three of the same prize amounts. More expensive scratchcards are larger and offer more games with higher-value prizes.
Some scratchcards have jackpots other than one-off payments, such as a yearly sum or a car. Odds for winning a top prize on a scratchcard depend greatly on how many have been sold and whether there is any top prize scratchcards in circulation at time of purchase.
As the range of scratchcard games has increased, the odds of winning vary greatly. Instant Win games are online games where the player can win prizes instantly.
Some games are similar in format to scratchcards, with others involving more interactive play such as dice-rolling or matching special symbols. It is made clear that the Instant Win games are solely based on luck and that no skill or judgement is involved.

A dream number was printed on every Lotto ticket bought, whether the player had chosen to enter it into the draw or not. Unlike other Lotto games, it was not possible to choose the number entered, and the order that the numbers were drawn was significant, as the numbers had to be matched in the same order for the player to win.
Draws took place on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Originally, the draw was televised on both Wednesdays and Saturdays, but was latterly only televised on Saturdays, when the Wednesday draw took place prior to the live TV show and the winning dream number was announced during the show.

Five years and a bonus year would be drawn at random from the machine for the first game, but for the second game, two pairs of machines were used: For the ones for the new Millennium; the left machine would have the numbers 20 to 29, and the right machine having the numbers from 00 to One number was drawn at random from each of those machines; each pair creating a year.
