Wednesday will offer Health Lottery players a chance to win up to either £100,000 or £1,000,000, depending on how they have entered into the game. There are two different ways a player can enter into the Health Lottery and this is through two different methods, players can win up to £100,000 if they purchase a £1 ticket from any of the official Health Lottery outlets or website. Players who want the chance to win the same prizes as the main Health Lottery and up to £1 million, they can enter into a game known as the Health Lottery Bet, which also requests the same £1 cost to play. The Health Lottery Bet game has been created through a partnership between the official Health Lottery and Coral, a leading UK bookmaker.
The Health Lottery is ran in a completely different manner to the likes of The National Lottery, which have accused the game providers of exploiting loopholes to allow the game to run. The footprints of The Health Lottery stem from an older NHS Lottery which failed to launch on account of being illegal at the time. Although the Health Lottery appears to be a unified lottery it is actually 51 different lotteries, however the managing body behind the game have attempted to appear as a national game when they are actually just representing a small proportion of the UK. The Health Lottery is made up of 51 different organisations with each representing a specific region of England, Scotland and Wales. Each draw is assigned one of the charitable organisations with Northern and Shell running the game on their behalf, The National Lottery have estimated that £0.50 of every £1 is claimed by the for-profit company as expenses, in comparison to the £0.05/£1 for The National Lottery.
The game was frequently promoted on the Channel 5 domain however after the channel has been sold it has had a much smaller presence however the game does appear on websites such as the OK magazine, Daily Express and several other companies managed by Northern and Shell. Although the game had massive success when it first launched it appears that the sales are dwindling, several shop keepers have told journalists that National Lottery sales usually outpace Health Lottery sales ten fold.
With every ticket sold the Health Lottery have been forced by law to donate a minimum of 20% of all proceeds to charitable causes, this is done through each of their society charities. The society charity which will receive funding from tonight’s draw will be an organisation named HealthWhole, this group manages funding in the Kent region. To all Health Lottery and Health Lottery Bet players, the WagerPod team would like to wish you the best of luck.
