Thunderball is a UK Lotto draw based on the USA’s Powerball lotto model. Thunderball odds though are considerably better than its USA counterpart at 1/8,060,598. Thunderball lotto’s first time draw took place on 12th June 1999. Winning jackpots are fixed cash prizes of £250,000 to £500,000 tax free. So it’s quite a lot lower than say the USA lotto’s but then again the odds are more than 15 times better. It is perhaps the best odds to win of all of the lotto’s in our top 10 only Irish Lotto is close to this but with a better prize draw. Bear in mind like the UK lotto this prize is in GPB which can be a strong currency for example with £500,000 being the equivalent of $840,000 at this time which is equivalent to a $1 million win in the USA after you have paid the obligitory state tax. You can see the reason this game is very popular with the UK players. Thunderball games take place three times per week its a great lottery to play online.
