The Health Lottery launched in October 2011 with the aim of supporting health related good causes across the UK. Draws for the £1 game are held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 9.55pm and are broadcast live on Channel 5.
Unlike the UK Lotto, the Health Lottery isn’t a national lottery, but is comprised of 51 society lotteries each representing local authority areas across England, Scotland and Wales. The local authority areas are selected in rotation to be the beneficiary of funds raised through ticket sales and then used for health-related good causes.

Play Health Lottery
To play the Health Lottery, players must select five numbers from a possible 50 and must match all five numbers to win the jackpot. Those not wishing to pick their own numbers can select the Quick Pick option which will randomly select a set of five numbers. The Bonus Ball is not chosen by players and instead offers players increased prizes for matching two, three or four numbers.
The maximum top prize for each draw in the £1 game is £100,000 and does not roll over if it is not won. If more than one ticket holder matches all five main numbers in a draw, the top prize is evenly split between the winners.
There are a total of six winning prize tiers in the Health Lottery offering fixed prizes for matching from three numbers.
Health Lottery Tickets
Health Lottery tickets can be purchased online or from an authorised Health Lottery retailer for up to eight weeks (sixteen draws) in advance. Tickets purchased online are stored in your Health Lottery online account and are checked automatically with winnings of £250 or less automatically paid into your player account.
Players matching all five main numbers or four winning numbers plus the Bonus Ball, will need to contact the Health Lottery by telephone in order to begin the claims procedure.
Health Lottery prizes are valid for 180 days after the date of the draw, after which they will expire.
