How is the Jackpot calculated?
*10% of funds from ticket sales are allocated to the Match 5 prize tier in each draw, so if ticket sales were £750,000 then the jackpot would be £75,000. However, there is a guaranteed minimum jackpot of £25,000. So in the event that ticket sales for a draw totalled less than £250,000, the top prize would still remain at £25,000. Where more than one player wins, the available fund will be split equally between them. So two winners of a £75,000 jackpot would receive £37,500 each.
From time to time, the Health Lottery will run special offers for players which provide better odds of winning, or larger additional prizes.
One such promotion was the Hot Ticket event which took place in February 2018. Players won £25,000 if the raffle code printed on their ticket matched a winning code. For details about older promotions, please visit the Health Lottery History page.
