How much is The Big Win?

If you’re looking to play  The Big Win , you’re in luck. The Big Win only costs £1 to enter. 

You can play as you go or never miss a draw by setting up a direct debit. 

Join us for draws on Tuesday through Saturday for your chance to win £25,000.  

Play on Wednesday and you could win £100,000 with free automatic entry into our extra prize draw. 

It's an even bigger prize pot on Saturday, with a cool £500,000 up for grabs! 

That’s a big return on £1 if you’re lucky enough to match all five balls.

The Big win is a fan favourite, but there are quicker ways to play if you don’t like waiting around.
