Other ways to play
Play by Direct Debit
If you'd like to play Lotto or Thunderball every week, why not play by Direct Debit? Just tell us your chosen numbers and we'll do all the hard work for you. We'll automatically enter your numbers into your chosen draws, check your numbers and even let you know when you've won. You pay for your tickets by monthly Direct Debit and we can pay any winnings up to £5,000 straight into your bank account for you. For winnings greater than this we'll be in touch to let you know how to claim your prize. You can set up your Direct Debit here, or by telephone or post - please call 0845 278 8000.
Syndicates (playing in a group)
To increase your chances of winning, you and your friends and family can play National Lottery games as part of a syndicate. It is sensible to have a written syndicate agreement in place as you may be taxed on your winnings if you don't. Guidelines on how to set up and run a syndicate can be found online on the Syndicates page or in a free syndicate pack available from The National Lottery Line on 0845 9 100 000.
