Other cookies

As well as using cookies to make our site work, we use them to keep track of what you’re interested in. This helps us understand which adverts you might be interested to see.

If you spend some time looking at the Weekly Lottery page, for example, you might see an advert for the Weekly Lottery on Facebook or Google later.

These cookies also help us understand which adverts are working, so we can spend our advertising budgets in the most effective ways.
