How our weather lottery works

When you sign up you’ll receive a unique 6-digit lucky number for each entry you take – each entry costs £1. Then, fingers crossed, see if your lucky number is one of those selected when the draw is made every Monday.

Join via direct debit – each line costs £1 per week, £4.34 per month as some months have 5 draws.

The Weather Lottery result is based on the last digit of the fahrenheit temperature forecast for six European destinations, as published in the Daily Mail newspaper each Monday.
