Lincoln Community Lottery

Lottery Logo

Lincoln Community Lottery is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in Lincoln.

All good causes supported by the lottery benefit Lincoln and its residents.

Play the lottery, support Lincoln - it’s that simple!

Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 per week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000! That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery!

Each ticket consists of 6 numbers and each number will be between 0 and 9. There will be a draw every Saturday night when a 6 digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2-6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all 6 and you win the JACKPOT!

Look out for additional bolt on prizes throughout the year.

The lottery and its prizes are our way of putting the fun in fundraising. The real winners are the good causes. From every £1 ticket sold 60p will go to good causes in Lincoln! To put this in perspective, when you play the National Lottery 25% goes to good causes – we’ve more than DOUBLED the ticket percentage that goes to good causes.

Even better, you can choose which good cause gets 50p of the 60p (the remaining 10p will be distributed to other good causes).

Lincoln Lottery Community Fund

The Lincoln Lottery Community Fund is allocated to good causes annually in late summer/early autumn through a consultation and application process. 

This fund has been raised by supporters of the lottery over the past twelve months who have either:

  • directly selected the Community Fund as their good cause when purchasing tickets – 60 pence of every ticket sold goes towards this fund


  • selected any of the other good causes when purchasing tickets - 10 pence of every ticket sold supports the Community Fund, with a further 50 pence going directly to the supporters chosen good cause
