It's taken just three years for the Health Lottery to raise £57 Million for UK health charities and local good causes, and the good work is set to continue.

The £1 per line game which offers 1 week free play when signing up to direct debit has positively affected in excess of 265,000 different people by generating huge sums of cash. 20p in every £1 staked on the Health Lottery goes towards a health related good cause, resulting in around 1,500 community initiatives benefitting from donations by the People's Health Trust since it was set up.

Owner of the Health Lottery Richard Desmond said "It's been a significant year for us both in terms of the number of people who continue to play the Health lottery and the financial help we are able to give to communities in need around the country."

Celebrities such as Simon Cowell and The Who frontman Roger Daltry have also given their support to the work which the Health Lottery is doing to help people in need. Examples of the kind of initiatives that the Health Lottery supports are Mencap in South Wimbledon which helps young adults suffering from learning disabilities and The Conservation Volunteers Green Gyms which helps to regenerate communal green spaces in deprived areas.

To win a prize on the Health lottery you must match any 2 numbers plus the bonus ball on the same line, 3 numbers or 3 numbers and the bonus ball, 4 numbers, 4 numbers and the bonus ball or 5 numbers.

A £1 play could land you the top prize of £100,000 and with 20% of all stakes going to good causes, you'll be contributing to the charity too. Start playing the Health Lottery by Direct Debit today and get 1 weeks free play.
