The 12 regional lotteries making up the Health Lottery support local projects tackling health inequalities across England, Scotland and Wales.
And if you want a change from playing the main draw or to try something a little different, check out this lotto’s great selection of instant win and scratch games. In the same way as the weekly draws, just over 20p in every pound spent on playing will help the health-related good causes.
So buy a ticket – and find out immediately whether you have won or not!
How to play
Prices for these games start at just 5p and go up to £3.50, with the price for each one made clear.
You’ll need to sign up for a Health Lottery account before you do anything else, but registering can typically be completed in just a few moments. You will need to add your debit card details, then just choose what you want to play and hit Play now. You’ll also have a security code to enter.
With no need to top up your account in advance, and no minimum deposits, it really couldn’t be easier to enjoy the Health Lottery’s instant offerings.
Playing Instant Win and Scratch Games
In all, there are 18 of these games to enjoy, and many come with bundle offers on ticket purchases. For example, with Scratch Off Ra, you could get up to four free tickets – and have a shot at winning the top £20k prize. Where there are high prizes (for example Diamond) or good odds (Summer Spike) these are clearly labelled. The cheapest game to enter (at the time of writing Elephant) is also marked.
There are games based on casino activities like blackjack, or sport such as tennis and football. Halloween (and other seasonal offerings) plus Irish-themed games are also on offer.

Prizes in these games vary – some will offer smaller prizes but better odds, and vice versa. Available prizes and odds are clearly shown for each game, and any winnings will be paid directly into your online wallet.
However, if you’re lucky enough to win a £10k or £25k prize, understandably a few more checks will be needed first.
Daily raffle promos
The Health Lottery runs a number of raffle promotions and prizes, and typically you are entered with every line you buy during the campaign period. Check the entry email you’ll get for full terms and conditions.
You can try these Health Lottery games in demo mode before playing for real. You will need to log into your account (and be aged 16 or older) to do so. But it’s a great way of trialling these activities without spending a penny.
The Health Lottery’s instant win and scratch games are fast-paced, affordable and enjoyable while giving immediate results. There are also plenty of titles to choose from. So we reckon you can have a lotto fun playing them! But see for yourself – and let us know how you get on.
