What is the Mega Raffle?

Our new monthly raffle draw takes place on the 1st of each month.

Every month, one person is guaranteed to win £250,000.

For every £1 line purchased for any weekly lottery draw in a given month (for example a draw in September), the player also receives one entry into that month’s Mega Raffle draw which takes place on 1st day of the following month (in this example, 1st October).
