How you might win prizes

Prizes are won by matching your chosen numbers to those drawn in our draws.

When you buy a ticket or are awarded a free ticket, you will have five numbers between 1 and 49. Tickets cost £1.

Every Monday and Thursday at 10pm we hold a draw. The draw is determined using a certified random number generator and is observed and validated by at least two members of the Scottish Children’s Lottery team. Five numbers and a bonus ball are drawn.

The more numbers you match, the higher the prize you may win.

Our charity

The Scottish Children’s Lottery supports the charity Scottish Children's Lottery Trust (previously named Chance to Flourish).

Scottish Children's Lottery Trust

Currently, one in five children in Scotland live in poverty. We believe that every child deserves the absolute best start in life, whatever their family’s circumstances. With your support, Scottish Children's Lottery Trust will invest in projects that aim to alleviate the impact of poverty, providing help to those children who need it most.
Visit the Scottish Children's Lottery Trust website to find out more.  
Scottish Children's Lottery Trust has Scottish Charity Number SC046177
Gambling Commission Number 45496



As well as paying prizes to you, we guarantee that from every £1 ticket sold, at least 20p will go to supporting Children in Scotland.

This has helped us raise over £7.8m for children in Scotland since our launch in October 2016.

To give you an example, in 2022

  • we received £3,394,806 in ticket sales
  • we donated £678,959 to good causes (20%)
  • we paid out £918,568 in prizes (27%)
  • 53% of ticket sales were used to help cover operating expenses (including marketing)


Since launch, our charity has distributed over £7.8 million to good causes.

Charities supporting children in Scotland can apply for grants via our supporting charity website:

Scottish Children's Lottery Trust has a group of trustees that will determine which applications will be successful for funding.

  • Qualifying criteria includes;
  • The charity applying should be a registered charity in Scotland with a charity bank account. It should also return annual accounts.
  • That the money is for a project delivered in Scotland
  • That the charity’s accounts are up to date
  • That the charity works outside or supplementary to statutory responsibilities
  • That the charity can clearly demonstrate positive impacts as it will be required to deliver an end of grant impact analysis report
  • That the charity has secured funding from another source as we will normally only give funding of up to 50% of any project – any more than this will be at the sole discretion of the trustees
  • We will only fund for one year. This is to ensure the charity is not fully reliant on our donation in future years
  • The money cannot be used for retrospective or deficit funding or repayment of loans
  • The amount of funds available for distribution will depend on the amount of tickets sold
  • The maximum grant that can be applied for is £15,000
  • Grants are normally awarded by our charity trustees quarterly
  • Details of successful grants can be found on our website on the Good Causes page or in the list below
  • We publish Annual Reports with details of funding in that year which is generally available
