How it works

The lottery is a number match game – for every £1 you play each week – you’ll receive a unique 6-digit lottery number.

Every Friday, a winning number is drawn at random. If your digits are in the same position as the digits in the winning number sequence, you win a prize. Match all six digits to win up to £25,000!

This is how it works – if the winning number sequence was 123456, the lottery number 163057 would be a 3-digit winning match; because 3 digits are positioned in the same place in the sequence.
