Choose 5 numbers from 39 and 1 extra number (the Thunderball) from 14.
The Thunderball lottery offers six prizes, so if you match every number along with the Thunderball you get to keep the entire R10.02 million jackpot. It’s true! Even if there are other jackpot winners, the Thunderball means they lose and the winner takes all! If you match 5, this gets you the second prize, and getting 4 plus the Thunderball means you get the third prize, etc. Even the Thunderball on its own will win you a prize, and every one of them is paid out as a lump sum.
There are nine prize tiers in the UK Thunderball lottery, which means you get 9 chances to win, 4 times a week!
Thunderball lotto draws take place every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.

The Thunderball lotto syndicate allows a group of players to buy lots of tickets as a group, boosting their chances of a win. Just choose how many shares you would like when you join. The more shares you hold - the larger your piece of the prize cake if one of your tickets wins.
UK Thunderball differs from other lottery games because it has fixed prizes. It doesn’t matter how many tickets are sold or how many winners come forward. The fixed jackpot prize is around R9.88 million, depending on the exchange rate. That’s why we can’t really talk about the record for the biggest winner because everybody who wins the jackpot is the biggest winner!
The best feature of Thunderball is its favourable odds. A 1 in 13 chance of winning ANY prize is as fair as it gets! And the jackpot odds are among the very best you’ll see anywhere — 1 in 8,060,598.
