Among the 52 health societies which make up the Health Lottery the organisation which will be obtaining funding through tonight’s draw is HealthAble, a charity setup to manage health related funding in the Cumbria area. Players who are not familiar with The Health Lottery structure can find a run down on each society charity by visiting the official website, there are 51 society groups which make up the Health Lottery game with each charity representing a specific region of Great Britain. Technically The Health Lottery is 51 independent lottery games but is ran by Northern and Shell, a for-profit company, who have also owned Channel 5 and the Daily Express. The game has come under fire from the likes of The National Lottery who claim the organisation is taking money away for worthwhile causes, the group estimated that Northern and Shell charge £0.50 per £1 in expenses as opposed to The National Lottery who charge just 5p.
Health Lottery players will have the ability to win up to £100,000 through the main draw or up to £1 million if they have opted to manage their tickets through Coral, a UK bookmaker. The jackpot which is generated for Wednesday will be predicted through ticket sales, in the event of a lower-than-expected turnout the jackpot will be reduced should a player be fortunate enough to win it. The top prize is awarded to any player who can match all of the main game numbers without using the Bonus Ball, prizes are then reduced from matching lower winning combinations of numbers.
The game is played twice per week and players can tune into Channel 5 on either Wednesday or Saturday to watch the draw unfold live on TV, the time of the draw is approximately 21:55 however the time has changed previously due to sporting events. The draw itself takes less than 120 seconds to complete which is why the game does not appear in TV schedules, it also makes an appearance during a commercial break which can make it easy to miss.

The draw is usually hosted by the same group of presenters which include names such as Natalie Cassidy, Sian Welby and Anne Diamond, who usually appear in rotation.
