Dream Number was a branch of the UK lotto, offering a unique way of winning. Whereas most lotteries are played as individual games, the Dream number had to be played in conjunction with the main UK lotto. The Dream Number differed from most lottos as the way in which you could win was subtly different in that the order of the numbers was as important as which numbers were picked. Read on to further discover about this hybrid lotto.
The Dream lotto was a randomly selected combination of seven single digit numbers between 0 and 9. There was no need to select numbers as they were randomly selected at the point of purchase. As afore mentioned the Dream Number was played in conjunction with the UK lotto, and so it follows that it could be played every Wednesday and Saturday.
In order to win one of the prizes you had to match one or more of the digits in the correct position. The prize values were tiered depending on the amount matched. For example if you were randomly selected the digits 3141592 and the draw brings up a 3 in the first place, then you win the smallest prize of £2, if the second is 1, then you have matched two digits and so win the prize of £10. This progresses towards the grand prize of £500,000 for matching all 7 digits.
As there were 7 digits that are selected, there was the possibility of one of 7 levels of winnings, they were as follows:
|Ways To Win||Prize money (£)||Odds of winning|
|Match 7 of the digits in order||500,000||1 in 10,000,000|
|Match 6 of the digits in order||50,000||1 in 1,111,112|
|Match 5 of the digits in order||5000||1 in 111,112|
|Match 4 of the digits in order||500||1 in 11,112|
|Match 3 of the digits in order||100||1 in 1,111|
|Match 2 of the digits in order||10||1 in 111|
|Match 1 of the digits in order||2||1 in 11|
