Every so often, a visitor to these pages will ask if there are any books or publications about the National Lottery or lottery systems in general. After searching through the Amazon.co.uk catalogue, I've put together a list of titles that might interest you.

In an effort to be as comprehensive as possible, I've included the retailers' synopses of the various titles where available, however several books have no accompanying descriptions—and so their inclusion has been based on the publication's title and may not be entirely relevant to the UK National Lottery. If in doubt it may be worth a trip to your local library.

To find out more information about each title, or order the book online, just click on the given link. If you can't find the title you're looking for, or you'd like to browse through the complete catalogue, just click on the above banner to visit the UK's best online bookstore.


Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Lotto
Thompson, E.

ISBN 1861066333 Paperback
"This definitive book was written for the ordinary lottery enthusiast who wishes to gain an in-depth understanding of this highly popular game; and to present a FACTUAL and PRACTICAL alternative to the many unworkable systems, get-rich-quick schemes, lotto secrets and other dubious products offered for sale—none of which are ever likely to enrich anyone but their promoters.
"The reader is taken step by step through the history and mechanics of lotteries, simple probability theory, number wheeling, odds calculation and all of the other basic essentials that players want to know. It is written in plain everyday English, assumes no special numerical skills; and anyone who can add, subtract, multipy and divide (even with the aid of a calculator) can attain a fair level of expertise in this game."
