How To Play Our Lottery

It's Easy.

Your Hospice Lottery is a fun and easy way to raise money to help our hospice partners to continue to provide free, high quality care in their communities, and you have the chance to WIN too!

First Things First...

£1 is all you need.

It's only £1 per weekly entry into the draw!

Your hospice.

Choose which hospice you wish to support

Direct Debit.

You can pay online by direct debit from £4.34 per month (this is not an admin fee- we simply divide your £1 a week equally over the 12 months ahead) or by debit card from £10. ( There is a £1 uplift on your first payment, per play to £5.34, this is to ensure you are always in credit to go into the draw, if on 5 week months )

Other options.

Or you can pay by cheque or debit card from £10 by telephoning us on 0800 285 1390

What about the prizes?

Weekly prizes.

The weekly prizes ( 185 x £10,,1 X £250, 1 X £1000 and rollover prize of up to £25,000 ) are set prior the draw in order of the highest value prize to the lowest.

Roll the dice.

Winning numbers are drawn and allocated to the prizes that have been set. i.e. the first number picked at random will win the highest prize, second number picked will win the second highest prize etc

We have a winner!

Once a number has been allocated a prize they are taken out the pot for the remaining weekly prizes.

Don't worry.

You don't need to remember to check your numbers and you don't need to do anything to claim your prize - if you win a prize we’ll post you out a cheque shortly after the draw takes place


But if you do want to check if you are a winner each week, please click the Results tab or check the posters displayed at hospice locations

What's the rollover?

A five percent chance of it being won each week.

When it comes to the rollover prize in the list of prizes, it becomes a two-step process 1. Whether it will be won or not (set at a 5% chance of winning each week) and then if the system decides it is to be won it moves to step 2. To pick a winner. If it is not to be won, it will rollover by £500, until up to a maximum of £25,000, where the system will automatically set the chance of winning to 100%.
