How it works

Play the lottery now (opens in a new tab)


Yes, you are more than welcome to enter more than once. You can enter up to 5 chances per week, paying on a monthly basis by Direct Debit.

Every chance costs just £1.00 per draw and the amount debited will depend on the number of chances you have selected and on the number of Fridays between each payment. For example, if you play just one line per week (£1), your Direct Debit will be £4 or £5 (depending on how many Fridays are in that month).

You can choose from the 1st or 15th of every month. Your Direct Debit will be collected on your chosen date or next working day and a schedule will be sent to you in advance.

Yes, currently you can only pay monthly by Direct Debit.

Your Direct Debit will appear as either AFFINITY LOTTERY or THE WOODS GROUP LTD T/A AFFIN LOT

Unfortunately, Gift Aid cannot be claimed on funds raised through the lottery.

You can choose 6 numbers yourself or opt for a ‘lucky dip’ and the system will randomly select your numbers.

Yes, you will receive a welcome letter via email with confirmation of your entry to the Lottery, along with your Direct Debit advance notification letter and your chosen lottery number(s). This will only be sent via post where no email address has been provided, or an email has been rejected.

You can contact our Lottery Helpline as shown on the website: 0330 002 1517.

Yes, you can change your numbers in the ‘manage my account’ area on the website.

There is a draw every week which take place on a Friday.

Each week you have the opportunity to win one of 37 cash prizes: 1st Prize: £25,000, 2nd Prize: £1,000 and 35 guaranteed Runner-up Prizes: 5 x £20, 10 x £10 and 20 x £5.

6 numbers between 1 and 49 are randomly selected. We will then check all of the eligible entries to see if any match the 6 or 5 numbers in any order. If all 6 numbers are matched, you will win £25,000 and if you match 5 numbers you will win £1,000, from a shared prize pot. If more than one eligible entry matches, the prize pot will be split equally between each winning entry.

What’s more, every week 35 lucky winners are randomly selected from all eligible entries who are guaranteed to win our runner up prizes.

The winners will be selected electronically using a random number generator, tested and approved by a Gambling Commission certified test house.

Following the draw, you will be notified by email where possible with funds subsequently deposited directly into your bank account. In the event of an undeliverable email you will be notified by post.

1st and 2nd prize winners will be notified by telephone with confirmation and cheque sent by post.

It is important to keep your details up to date so we know where to send any winnings. You can make updates at any time by managing your account online.

Every Friday afternoon the results will be available online.

From signing up you will be entered into the next available draw 16 working days later. This gives us time to complete the necessary administrative processes including payment verification, claiming the funds from your bank and the funds being received for the draw.
