Our lottery

Play our weekly lottery!

Seafarers UK is partnered with Sterling Lotteries as a member of The Unity Lottery. This weekly lottery helps raise vital funds for seafarers in need and their families while giving you the chance to win £25,000, plus many other fantastic cash prizes, each week.

How does it work?

The draw takes place every Friday and each entry costs just £1. When you join our lottery you’re allocated your own 6-digit lottery number. A random winning number is drawn – the aim is to match three, four, five or six digits of the winning number in the correct place in the sequence.

If you match…

  • 3 digits you’ll win 5 entries into the next draw
  • 4 digits you’ll win £25
  • 5 digits you’ll win £1,000
  • 6 digits you’ll WIN £25,000!

You must be 16 or over to enter. You will automatically be notified if you win so there’s no need for you to claim. It’s that easy!

How are the lottery proceeds used?

Seafarers receives a minimum of 20% of all proceeds from the lottery, which is spent on our good cause work. 14% of lottery proceeds is spent on prizes and 66% on expenses (Figures based on average for 2019). The money goes directly towards the work we do supporting seafarers in need and their families.

This may go towards aiding families who’ve lost a loved one at sea, or supporting the men and women who work in one of the most vital, yet most challenging and most dangerous industries. Or it might enable us to provide funding for veterans needing physiotherapy. The more we raise, the more seafarers in urgent need we can help.

In 2019, our funding supported over 209,000 people in need. Learn more about our impact.

What are the odds of winning a prize?

There is a 1 in 63 chance of winning a prize in the Forces Lottery every week (Accurate as of July 2020).
