Next draw



Each entry costs just £1 and the draw takes place every Friday.

When you join the lottery you’re allocated your own 6-digit lottery number. A random winning number is drawn – the aim is to match the winning number.

Six digits in the correct place wins £25,000
Five digits in the correct place wins £1,000
Four digits in the correct place wins £25
Three digits in the correct place wins five prize entries into the next draw 

All winners are notified and cash prizes are posted by cheque automatically if you win and prize entries are automatically entered into the next draw -  so you can’t miss out!

For every £1 entry at least 60p goes directly to improving the lives of people with Crohn's and Colitis. The rest goes towards running the lottery and the amazing prize!

When I got Ulcerative Colitis, I didn’t know what it was. It was painful and I didn’t know when I was going to get better – or if I was going to get better.

I joined the lottery to give back to the charity for the help they offer me. I wasn’t expecting to win anything, let alone £1,000! It was a lovely surprise, particularly as the cheque arrived on my Birthday!
