Health Lottery

The Health Lottery is not part of the national lottery. It is an independent game which operates by coordinating 12 individual society lotteries. Each one is licensed by the Gambling Commission and represents a different region of the UK.

Tickets cost just £1 and drawings are held five times a week - Tuesday to Saturday. The funds raised by players are rotated across each of the 12 areas involved and are used to support public health causes which benefit the local community.
