A single play costs just £1 each week and you can play up to five times per week. Your unique lottery number will be entered into the draw which normally takes place every Friday. You're automatically notified if you win - you don't have to make a claim.

I was completely bowled over on receiving a winning cheque today via the 'Raise a Smile' Lottery - it certainly brought a smile to my face! I have supported the lottery every month since it just about started and had largely forgotten all about it, though I know it brings in much needed income.
