Where can I buy People's Postcode Lottery tickets?

The simplest way to buy People's Postcode Lottery tickets is to sign up to play online.

You can also purchase 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 help set up your monthly subscription. For details on our opening hours, see the Contact Us page.

Why buy People's Postcode Lottery Tickets?

By signing up, you won't need to remember and buy your ticket every week - sign up once and pay monthly in advance to play in all draws. One ticket (one subscription) is £12 per month. If you choose to play two subscriptions, the cost is £24 per month. For three subscriptions, you'll pay £36 each month. There are no additional transaction fees.

Another great benefit of playing People's Postcode Lottery is that, if you win, you don't need to claim your prizes. The money is paid into your bank account within 28 days.

Finding out results is easy too. You can do this by:

  • Checking out the Lottery Results section online, or

  • Calling us on freephone number 0808 109 8765.

Our Winners are notified by email, SMS message, letter or phone call depending on the prize you won. We recommend that players register an email address with us and keep their address and telephone details up to date, to ensure they can be notified of any prize wins.

How can I buy the tickets?

Most of our players make monthly payments for their tickets by Direct Debit. Setting this up is quick and easy and you'll never have to update your details. Any prize money will be paid directly into your bank account and you are fully protected by the Direct Debit Guarantee.

It's also possible to sign up for a subscription using Debit Card, PayPal or Apple Pay.

In addition, we offer a PayPal Express Checkout, which allows you to sign up online to play faster using your PayPal account.

Previously, it was possible to directly sign up to play with Credit Card or pay by Debit Card using a specific 'VISA via PayPal' approach. It's no longer possible to sign up for new tickets using these payment methods.

You can use your Debit Card to pay directly by choosing the Debit Card option in the sign up process. Please note, we do not accept Clydesdale Bank Debit Cards, UnionPay Debit Cards or non-UK Debit Cards.

What are your chances of winning?

In 2023, 84% of players won prizes with People's Postcode Lottery. These included our £30,000 Street Prizes, shares of the monthly Postcode Millions prize and our weekly Millionaire Street prize, £1,000 prizes, £10 wins, Prize Vouchers and E-Gift Cards. Thousands of postcodes win each week, and millions of pounds in prizes is won every month.

For £12 a month, players are automatically entered into all People's Postcode Lottery draws. Winning postcodes are announced every single day of the month. Only playing postcodes are entered into the Postcode Lottery draws, so prizes are always guaranteed to be won.  

If you sign up and play, you'll a win a prize if your postcode gets lucky. You never know when a big win is coming your way. Neighbours in Patchway were amazed when their postcode netted them £30,000 Street Prizes twice in just seven months. We've even had the same postcode win Postcode Millions prizes twice.

It isn't possible to predict the likelihood of winning a prize in future draws as this depends on the number of postcodes and tickets entered into the draws, and this can vary.
