People's Postcode Lottery is a subscription lottery which raises money for charities. Not only do our players win cash prizes, but good causes also receive essential support. Players sign up with their postcode and pay £10 per month.

They are automatically entered into every draw and prizes are announced every day of the month. As a minimum of 33% of the ticket price goes to charities, our players know that they are helping amazing causes every single day.
