Frequently Asked Questions

Find the answer to the most commonly asked questions about the lottery.

How does the lottery work?

Each week your personal 6-digit lottery number (issued by Unity Lottery when you sign-up) is entered into a draw and the winning numbers are chosen at random.

You can purchase as many numbers as you wish for £1 each, giving you even more chances to win a number of great prizes.

Any prizes you win are issued and posted directly to you; there’s no need for you to claim.You can cancel at any time if you don’t want to remain in the draw.

How old do I have to be to enter?

You must be aged 16 or over to enter the lottery.

Can I choose my own lottery numbers?

These are chosen randomly and will be your numbers for the duration of your membership of our lottery. When you enter the lottery, you will be sent your unique numbers.

How much does Derian House make from each entry?

From each £1 lottery entry, Derian House receive at least 50p in profit to the charity.

Why is the price £4.34 per month when paying by Direct Debit?

The monthly cost breakdown of £4.34 for playing the lottery is based on paying £1 per week over a 52 week year. As Direct debits are only collected once monthly, sometimes there will be five weeks in a month and the additional £0.34p is to build up credit to cover the fifth week on the five-week months

How will I know if I'm in the draw?

Within 21 days of registration you will receive a confirmation letter which contains details of your unique lottery number(s) and the date of the first draw your tickets are entered into. You will be entered into the draw when you have monies available and you will continue to be entered into the draw as long as you have monies available against your lottery number.

How will I know if I've won?

Once the draw has taken place, winners are notified by post. There is no need to claim your prize as this is sent straight to your address!
