Play our Hearing Lottery

For just £1 a week, you could win £500, or one of 15 other great cash prizes.

  • £500 Grand Prize
  • £20 x 5 winners
  • £10 x 10 winners

And when you play our Weekly Winner Draw, you’ll be automatically included in our biannual Superdraw for a chance to win a whopping £5,000!

Players must be 18 years old or over. No prizes will be paid to anyone under 18 years of age. Underage gambling is an offence.


Play today, transform tomorrow

Start playing our weekly lottery today and the money raised will go towards the vital work that help people with hearing loss – including support services, campaigning for equality and biomedical research.

We invest in developing treatments to protect and restore hearing and to silence tinnitus. We also work hard to find cures for those who want them.

This means for that for over 12 million people in the UK who have hearing loss and the 7.1 million who have tinnitus, there’s a greater chance for a better tomorrow.

How it works

Within 14 days of processing your entry, we’ll post you your unique lottery number/s and the date of the first draw to which you’ll be entered. You’ll also receive your unique lottery number/s by email.

You can also sign up via our hotline on 01524 752548 (telephone and textphone, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm).

How we spend the money raised

In 2019, £378,946 was raised from ticket sales in our Weekly Lottery and Superdraws, with 14.43% being spent on prizes, 45.36% spent on expenses and 40.29% used to help support people across the UK to manage their deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss. This translated to a fantastic £152,666.34! (Based on the Lottery Submissions made by RNID to the Gambling Commission, during the 2019 calendar year.) Our Weekly Lottery is a fantastic way for us to grow our support as most of the remaining proceeds were re-invested into growing the number of people supporting our work, so that, together, we can transform even more lives.
