How to Play The Postcode Lottery
The People's Postcode Lottery is a subscription-only lottery open to residents of England, Scotland and Wales. For a monthly fee of just £10, players are entered into six main games, including Postcode Millions, where you can win a share of £3 million. For a full list of the games included in your ticket, see the main Postcode Lottery page.
Entering the Postcode Lottery
To enter, simply register and pay using either Direct Debit, Debit Card or Paypal. Entries into the draws are based on a player’s postcode, so there is no need to worry about picking numbers - just subscribe to one, two or three tickets. The more tickets a player buys, the bigger their prize could be.
Entries must be made online; there is no option to play at a retailer. However, this does mean that lottery officials can be sure to contact you in the event of a win of any size, making it unlikely that a prize goes unclaimed.
How to Win the Postcode Lottery
For every Postcode Lottery game except Postcode Millions, your full postcode must match the one drawn to win the prize. In the monthly luxury car draw, every ticket in a specific postcode area is worth £25,000, but one player is additionally selected to win a BMW 1 Series car.
In Postcode Millions, every player in a postcode sector (eg. PL2 1) wins a prize, with tickets in one full postcode area (eg. PL2 1HP) sharing the largest portion of the £3 million pool.
