Single tickets

Whether you've been a long-term supporter and fancy increasing your chances as the rollover gets higher, or just want to try your luck for one week - single tickets are an easy way to play. Each ticket costs £1 per entry. All tickets need to be purchased before 9am on Thursday to be entered into the draw on a Friday.

Please note that any tickets purchased after 9am on Thursday will be entered into the following Friday's draw. Please note because we are a lottery, we don’t accept credit cards so payment needs to be by debit card only.
