How to win the People's Postcode Lottery
If your postcode is drawn in a Street Prize, you win £30,000 for each ticket you play. If your postcode gets lucky in the Daily Prize, you win £1,000 for each ticket you play. Each month, your postcode can also win you a Dream Holiday package (£5,000 of holiday vouchers and £2,000 spending money) or a BMW and £25,000. Every month, all tickets also play in a £3 Million Postcode Millions. The £3 Million prize money is split among all the players in one lucky postcode sector, with tickets in the full winning postcode picking up the lion's share of the prize money.
