About the Scottish Children's Lottery
The Scottish Children’s Lottery has been launched to raise funds for, and improve the lives of, young people right across Scotland.
The Scottish Children’s Lottery gives you the chance to win fantastic cash prizes, whether it be playing in our Monday and Thursday draws or our subscription game, Always IN! at the same time as donating to a range of good causes.
Unlike a national lottery, the Scottish Children’s Lottery is the brand name for an umbrella scheme which promotes a draw on behalf of a charitable society called Scottish Children’s Lottery Trust. You can find out more here.
The Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation – or SCIO – has been established to work with key projects relating to the health and welfare of children across Scotland, with a particular focus on alleviating child poverty.
Every time you play the Scottish Children’s Lottery, you are helping to support the great work that our charities undertake.
The Scottish Children’s Lottery Trust has Scottish Charity Number SC046177 Gambling Commission Number 45496 Proceeds. 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 2021
- we received £4,710,527 in ticket sales
- we donated £960,970 to good causes (20.04%)
- we paid out £1,701,975 in prizes (36.13%)
