To win 1the jackpot prize of £500,000 in UK Thunderball lottery, you must match the 5 main numbers and 1 Thunderball. Draw happens four times a week, every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and are televised live on BBC One.
The very first Thunderball draw was held on 12 June 1999 where the draw was originally held on Saturdays. Also, during those times the jackpot prize was only half of the current top prize, which is £250,000. However, the rules significantly changed starting 9 May 2010, now giving away £500,000 top prize and also awarding a prize for matching the Thunderball alone. After this date, the Friday draw was introduced in addition to Wednesday and Saturday draws.
