How it works

Joining our lottery is easy.

Simply click here, select how many entries you would like each week, how you would like to pay along with your details then sit back and let us do the rest!

You can also download an application form here.

Once you’ve joined and become a member you will be given your own unique lottery number(s), this will be posted to you.

Every Friday, that your lottery number has £1 credit, yes our lottery is still only £1 a go, it will be entered into the draw.

Playing our lottery for one draw only?  Ticket numbers bought for entry into our weekly lottery for one week only will be posted to you at the address you enter on the website if purchased on-line.  You can also buy tickets for single entry in all our shops where you will be given you ticket at the till.

Prize Winners will be shown on our posters with the Single Ticket Number and name if provided or  Single Ticket Number and location bought if you did not provide your name and address at the point of sale and you will need to claim your prize see our Results page for details.  Lottery members who win a prize will be shown as their title, surname and postal town.

We have 53 prizes including our *Rollover Prize and the computer chooses the winning numbers for these at random, using a Random Number Generator (RNG).

Your likelihood off winning a prize is 1:222  based on the average numbers the draw during 2019-20.

Prize Structure:

  • 1st prize £1000
  • 2nd prize £200 – £10,000  – Rollover Prize (87% chance of a rollover)
  • 3rd prize £50
  • 50 x £5

For our prizes except our rollover this works by taking all the numbers with a £1 credit against them and then random selecting numbers, the first number drawn wins the top prize, the second the second prize until all prizes have been allocated.

*Our Rollover prize starts at £200 and if it’s not won the prize is rolled over to the next weeks draw. It can continue to roll over to the maximum of £10,000! If it reaches that we make it a guaranteed prize and the computer will be set to select a lottery number at random from only those with a £1 credit. A rollover happens because the computer, for this prize only, can select a number that hasn’t been bought.

Winners cheques are posted out automatically so there is no need to claim.  We do like to let you know straight away if you win one of our top 3 prizes so if the phone rings Friday morning it might be us with the exciting news you’re a lucky winner with us!

Our weekly winners list is published here and in all our charity shops and hospices. Radio Cornwall Saturday Breakfast Show, St Austell Bay Radio and Source FM give them a shout out as well.
