We're making exciting changes to our Weekly Lottery

Thank you so much for playing our Weekly Lottery! Every time you play you have a chance to win great cash prizes and will be contributing to life-saving research.  

As you will have seen, we’ve listened to our supporters’ suggestions and are making some changes. Don’t worry, none of these changes will affect your chance of winning great cash prizes every week. 

New lottery number format

Some of our Weekly Lottery supporters have told us that they're confused about how their numbers work. In our draw you don’t need to match numbered balls. Instead our draw selects 50 entries at random, this is how we guarantee 50 winners each week.

To keep things simple we’re changing how everyone’s numbers look.

You will have been informed of your new lottery number format in the email. 

Example of old lottery number format: 12,13,14,15,16
Example of new lottery number format: 121314

Don’t worry, this change doesn’t affect your chance of winning.
