Where can I play The Health Lottery?

Visit a Health Lottery retailer (there are over 32,000 of them!) or if you want to know how to play the lottery online, just go play to https://qiop.fumes.space

You can buy tickets just for this week's draw, or for up to five weeks in advance.

 

How to play The Lottery?

It’s easy and lottery ticket prices are only £1 to play each line.

If you do not know how to pick lottery numbers, do not worry, it is very straight forward. For each line, choose five numbers between 1 and 50. Although every number has an equal chance of being drawn, many people interpret the law of averages to suggest that if a number hasn’t been drawn recently, it is sure to come up soon. You could win the lottery online by choosing numbers that seem overdue for a draw!.

If you can’t decide which numbers to choose ask for a Quick Pick ticket or select the £1 Quick Pick if you’re playing online, and let the random number generator choose for you.

Choose the number of weeks you want to play. You can buy tickets just for this week’s draw, or for up to five weeks in advance.

If you want to play your favourite numbers every week, visit your Health Lottery retailer and collect your Playcard which can be activated at the retailer, or online by clicking the Playcard link at the bottom of this page. The lottery ticket prices will not change if you decide to purchase in store rather than online.

You can play in store at your local Health Lottery retailer or online at https://qiop.fumes.space. Remember to check that the number of weeks and numbers are the ones you wanted. And that's it! You're in the draw for the main Health Lottery game.

Keep your ticket or Playcard tucked in away in a safe place, and in good condition, so when it's time for the draw you know where to find it.

How do I play The Mega Raffle?

For each line purchased in the main Health Lottery game in a given month (e.g. entries purchased for draws in September), the player also receives one entry into that month’s draw (e.g. September’s Mega Raffle draw which takes place on 1st October).

If in a single transaction, a player purchases entries into draws covering two months (e.g. 3 chances for draws in September and  2 chances for draws in October) the player will also receive 3 chances in the September Mega Raffle (drawn on 1st October) and 2 chances in the October Mega Raffle (drawn on 1st November)

Players should note that valid Mega Raffle ticket codes may begin with either IW, IM, SD, EH, PH, PZ, or PO. The code format will depend on whether the Health Lottery ticket is purchased online or, if in retail, which payment terminal the store used to produce the ticket.  All eligible Mega Raffle tickets bearing any of these codes will be entered into the appropriate draw.

Raffle Code Examples:

IW16759718789

IM16211831303

SD16047086552

EH0099318129

PHLAND300905

PZ0203633604

How do I play the Scratch Card Games?

There are over a dozen of games to choose from, they all work slightly differently, so the best thing to do is look at each game and choose one that takes your fancy. Don’t worry, they’re very simple! The ticket prices for games are between 5p and £3.5 per play, you reveal the result on spot and we pay your prize straight away if you win.  If you’re lucky enough to win a prize of £10,000 or more, you’ll need to complete a claim form. One of our team will contact you to explain the prize claim process.

If you want to you can try the Scratch Car Games before you buy them,  just press “Play Demo”. They work exactly the same as if you have paid to play, except they’re free, and if you reveal a win you don’t actually get the prize (they are free after all!).

Just like the Lottery Draw Game you need to be 16 or over to play. That includes trying the games and you’ll need to log in to play them. If you don’t have an account just sign up, tell us a bit about yourself so we can check your age, deposit funds to your account, and then enjoy playing!
