1. Membership and Payment Choices

Membership of the Lottery is open to anyone over the age of 18, resident in Great Britain and is limited to 10 entries per week; i.e. £10 per week. This includes staff and family members or anyone who is not directly involved with the arrangements for the weekly draw.

2. Prizes

There are 163 cash prizes drawn each week. These are:

*Twice a year we increase the 1st prize from £1,000 to £2,500 in our Summer and Winter Super Draws. Additional entry tickets are available to purchase for these draws.

The total prize fund each week is therefore £2,250 with the exception of the two Super Draw weeks.

All prizes are guaranteed to be won every week. This is guaranteed, because only members who have paid in advance, and are therefore “in credit” and Single Tickets sold are included in the draw which takes place each Friday. We reserve the right, subject to holidays and unforeseen circumstances, to change the draw date without notice, in that event, the draw will take place as soon as possible and before the next weekly draw.

For each paid entry into the draw, a player has 163 chances each week of winning a prize. This equates to an approximate 1.48% chance per entry, based on 11000 players entered in a weekly draw. (playing figures vary from week to week).

It is an offence to gamble under the age of 16 although TLC runs an over 18 policy. This statement is reinforced by the requirement of a date of birth for all new players. TLC reserves the right to spot check any member who will be asked to confirm their date of birth, should there be any doubt then further checks will take place, initially by asking for age identification such as a copy passport or driving licence.
