Prize capping

*If there is a payout of more than £100,000 in any one draw then we may reduce some of the prizes so that the maximum we payout in any one draw is £100,000.

**We limit the amount paid out in jackpots to a maximum of £50,000 in any one draw. Therefore, if two or more customers win the jackpot in any one draw, we may reduce the jackpot payout accordingly. So, for instance, if five customers win the jackpot in any one draw, each may receive £10,000.

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.

Likelihood of winning prizes

The chance of you winning a prize in any draw is shown below. As you have a chance of winning any one of the prizes below, the combined chance of winning any prize is 1 in 6.
