Can I play for a fixed period of time?

The RNIB Lottery involves a simple monthly Direct Debit payment. We don't accept payments or cheques for a fixed period of time, but you can set up and cancel your Direct Debit at any time. If you wish, you can also pay for the RNIB Lottery with a quarterly or annual Direct Debit payment.

Will I get a lottery number?

Yes, we will send your randomly allocated lottery numbers in the post shortly after you sign up, along with all of the information you need to play. These are your numbers for every week you take part in the RNIB Lottery. If you play one chance a week, you will get one set of numbers, if you play two chances a week, you will get two sets of numbers and so on. If you would like to change your number, please give us a call on 0845 6016 936 or return the form provided in your pack.

How often does the RNIB Lottery draw take place?

The RNIB Lottery draw takes place every week, on a Friday.

How does the Super Draw work?

For one week, four times a year, we run a Super Draw where the first prize is £10,000 for that draw only, and £25,000 for the Christmas draw only. The Super Draws take place in September, January, March and June. It doesn't matter how long you've been playing the RNIB Lottery, you will still qualify to take part in the Super Draw.

Why does my direct debit amount vary from month to month?

It costs just £1 per chance to play the RNIB Lottery each week. So, if you play one chance a week in a four week month, £4 will be debited from your account. Some calendar months are made up of five weeks with five draws taking place instead of four, so the cost for that month will be £5. Your Direct Debit will only be collected once a month, but depending upon the number of weeks within that month, your payment will vary. 

What day is my Direct Debit collected?

The collection day for your Direct Debit is either the 1st or 15th of the month, or the nearest working day.

Are my RNIB Lottery payments  eligible for Gift Aid?

Your RNIB Lottery payments are not eligible for Gift Aid.

Do you accept entries from syndicates?

The RNIB Lottery is aimed at individuals. However if you wish to represent a syndicate and act on behalf of them, we would accept your personal details. All winnings would be paid into your account.

Who can enter the RNIB Lottery?

All players must be 16 years of age or older and residents of Great Britain to play the RNIB Lottery. For further information, please read our terms and conditions.
