How the lottery works
Playing the lottery
Union Lotto is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in affiliated Trade Unions. All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit affiliated Trade Unions and its residents.
Play the lottery, support affiliated Trade Unions - it’s that simple!
Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 a week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000! That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery.
Each ticket has six numbers and each number is between 0 and 9. There will be a draw every Saturday night when a six digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2 to 6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all six and you win the jackpot!

Your good causes
The lottery and its prizes are our way of putting the fun in fundraising. The real winners are the good causes. From every £1 ticket sold 60p will go to good causes in affiliated Trade Unions. To put this in perspective when you play the National Lottery 25% goes to good causes – we’ve more than doubled the ticket percentage that goes to good causes.
Even better, you can choose which good cause gets 30p of the 60p (the remaining 30p will be distributed to other good causes).
Good luck and have fun!
We hope you'll join us in making affiliated Trade Unions even better and have some fun along the way.
