The more tickets you play with, the more you win. If your postcode gets lucky, and you play with two tickets, you'll double your prize money. If you play with three tickets, you'll triple your winnings.

For example, in our Sunday Street Prize every ticket in one lucky postcode wins £30,000. That means if you play with one ticket, and your postcode gets drawn, you'll win £30,000. But if you play with two tickets then you'd win £60,000, and if you play with three tickets then you'd pick up £90,000. The same applies with our £1,000 prizes, which run from Monday to Friday. These fixed amount prizes are awarded per ticket. The more tickets you play with, the more you win. Prize funds in the £1 Million draw and Postcode Millions draw are shared on a per-ticket basis. The more tickets you play with, the greater your share of the total prize fund. See the How are winners selected? section on our How It Works page for more information.

Each ticket costs £12 per month to play. For two tickets, your subscription would be £24 per month, and for three tickets, it would cost £36 per month.

Please note that you must be aged 18 or older to play People's Postcode Lottery. People's Postcode Lottery is committed to responsible play. People's Postcode Lottery also supports GambleAware, a charity which funds the work of GamCare, which provides help, information and advice to anyone suffering with a gambling problem.

Play with People's Postcode Lottery

The simplest way to buy People's Postcode Lottery tickets is to sign up to play. You can also buy tickets by telephoning us on our freephone telephone number 0808 109 8765. Our Customer Experience team members will guide you through the sign up process and set up your monthly subscription. For details on our opening hours, see the Contact Us page. Each month, there are a set of draws. You cannot buy tickets for one individual draw - the minimum subscription is for one month and costs £12. Each payment enters your ticket into all the draws for a month in advance. That means your ticket plays for all the prizes in that month of play.

How Does Postcode Lottery Work?

Prizes are announced every day of the week with People's Postcode Lottery. You pay monthly for your ticket and when you sign up you will be informed of your first draw date. Winning postcodes from this draw will be announced daily from the following Saturday. After this date, check out the winning postcodes revealed every day to see if your postcode gets lucky!

All of our results are published on our Lottery Results page.

In that case, please ring us on freephone number 0808 109 8765 and we can arrange to pay your winnings. Please confirm this bank account information to us within six months of your win.
