Lottery Results in UK National and euromillions lotto
The Health lottery
The health lottery is a new lotto game launched in October 2011, it is totally seperate from the UK National lottery and has nothing to do with Camelot the current National lottery operators.
The health lottery has been set up to help raise funds for health related good causes. Whilst the National lottery raises funds for multiple types of good causes.
The health lottery has come underfire in the early days for only donating 20.3p (20.3% of sale price) from the £1 sale price to good causes, whilst the National lottery donates 28p (28% of sale price) from a £1 sale price.
How to play the Health lottery
To play the health lottery, players pick 5 numbers between 1 and 50 , or they can opt for a random selection by the lottery ticket machine to try to win a cash prize. The health lottery is a fixed prize lottery, meaning no matter how many winners the prize paid out per ticket is guaranteed.
Players must be 16 years of age, and have to live in Great Britain to be able to take part in the health lottery.
The fixed prize payouts are:
Matching 3 balls wins £50
Matching 4 balls wins £500
Matching 5 balls wins upto £100,000
The odds of winning the health lottery are as follows:
Odds of matching 3 main numbers with the health lottery are 214 to 1
Odds of matching 4 main numbers with the health lottery are 9,416 to 1
Odds of matching 5 main numbers with the health lottery are 2,118,760 to 1
The overall odds of winning any prize with the health lottery are 213.8 to 1.
Claiming your Health lottery winnings
If you win £50 this can be claimed from any Health lottery retailer. However for the two top prizes of £500 and £100,000 you will need to call the health lottery helpline. The number for the helpline is printed on the back of the lottery ticket.
Online health lottery players will have their £50 or £500 prize paid direct to their online health account, so online players will only need to submit a claim for the top £100,000 prize.
Health lottery revenue breakdown ( % figures from wikapedia and not verified)
22% in operating costs, marketing and administration
20.3% to good causes
?? to winners
The % paid to winners can’t be calculated as the lottery game is a fixed lottery winnings prize payout. No matter how many winners be it 1 or 2000 per draw, the prized paid out per winner will remain the same.
For example week 1: One person matches 5 main numbers they win £100,000. Week 2: 100 people match 5 main health lottery numbers, all 100 people win £100,000. The same rule applies for all health lottery prize categories.
