The prize figures are estimates. They are based on estimated sales of £125,000,000. The exact value of prizes depends on the number of tickets sold, the number of Game 2 winners and how many people match the winning years. If 2 or more players with the Game 1 jackpot, it will be shared between them.

In Game 1, the Match 5 Category is the highest Prize Category. If a player correctly matches the 5 Main Years and the Bonus Year, the prize will be the same as that for the Match 5 Category.

Game 2 - Guaranteed millionaires !

The exciting thing about Big Draw 2000 is that for every million tickets sold, a millionaire will be created.

Simply match the two years printed on your ticket with the two years drawn (one year from the past 1000 years and one year from the next 1000) and you'll be celebrating the new millennium as a millionaire. Guaranteeed.
