How to Play The Health Lottery

Pick five numbers between 1 and 50 when you buy your Health Lottery ticket online or from an authorised retailer. You can also use the Health Lottery Number Generator if you would like to play a truly random selection.

Health Lottery draws take place five nights a week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, when five main numbers are selected alongside one Bonus Ball. Match the five main numbers correctly and you will win your share of the jackpot.

Other prizes available range from £10 for matching two main numbers and the Bonus Ball up to £10,000 if you match four main numbers and the Bonus Ball.

The Health Lottery has over 33,000 authorised retailers around the UK that you can visit in order to buy physical tickets, but you could play the Health Lottery online now and save yourself the worry of losing that slip of paper. If you’re a winner, you’ll also receive an email informing you to log into your account to find out what you’ve won.

Health Lottery Bonus Ball

Although Health Lottery players are required to pick five numbers from 1 to 50, a total of six numbers appear in the draw. This additional number is referred to as the Bonus Ball and allows entrants matching two, three or four of the five main numbers in the draw to increase the value of their reward.

Players do not need to select a Bonus Ball when purchasing their ticket, as it is drawn from the same pool as the main numbers and is meant to boost lower tier prizes rather than contribute towards winning the jackpot. You win the jackpot by matching the five main numbers.

Matching the Bonus Ball can be beneficial, especially for those who have missed out on the jackpot by a single number. For example, should the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and Bonus Ball 6 appear in a Health Lottery draw and a player has selected the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6, they will win the Match 4 + Bonus Ball prize of £10,000.

How to Claim Health Lottery Prizes

Claiming your Health Lottery winnings will vary depending on how you purchased your ticket. The two different methods are outlined below:
