The Shakespeare Hospice - Play the Hospice Lottery

How it works

The draw takes place every Friday and each entry costs just £1. When you join our lottery you’re allocated your own 6-digit Unity lottery number. A random winning number is drawn - the aim is to match the winning number.

6 digits you’ll win £25,000 
5 digits you’ll win £1,000
4 digits you’ll win £25
3 digits you’ll win 5 entries into the next draw

A match occurs if your digits are in the same place in the sequence as they are in the winning number... 

325764 - random winning number 
326574 - your lottery number 
(This is a 3-number match, winning 5 entries into the next draw)


By playing our weekly lottery you're helping us continue to provide our free specialised services in our community.
