  1. Played on and off since the start, I agree with other reviews, I have spent a few hundred pounds on it and never won anything. It does seem like a scam, can the organisers prove me wrong? I doubt they would care or bother about the bad reviews as long as fools like us continue to line their pockets

  2. This site and Lottery is a Shambles, but guess what guy’s & Girls, we’re the mugs for thinking we could win something. Ditto to the UNTICK BOX @ bottom of number slip, otherwise you will be paying by direct debit weekly. WTF did I think I had a chance, when the truth is they have our pants down. The scratch cards aren’t clear as some of them turn into fruit machines, be carefull or you will lose evrything…what a CON 🙁

  3. I received bonus money, but I was not able to gamble it.

  4. I checked the results to find I had 3 numbers correct and only won a free ticket. This is the second time I had won more than a free ticket but only received a free ticket. I e-mailed them but as yet no reply. but as soon as I stopped my direct debit I had an e-mail the same day. THIS IS A SCAM

  5. can you lot stop complaining this is much better than UK lotto that’s rubbish I think health lottery is great value

  6. I played quick win and won £50 and £20 and never received it into my wallet. DO NOT PLAY QUICK WIN. It’s a scam.

  7. Contacted them to do less lines as didn’t want to spend £25/30 a month, got £20 in my balance, in the end I had to cancel direct debit with the bank,also point out i never won anything, but now can’t get my £20 back off them even after loads of emails requesting to close my account, i want/insist you return my money, normally I get kissed when someone is f–king me,

  8. It’s a shame, it takes far to long to get a ticket for me, cashier and the people in the queue behind me, to much information half tree that on the ticket. The raffle you have to hunt around lots of sites to find latest results (every thing is long winded) and not many winners??? I do Not like buying tickets anymore!

    00
  9. Sting to the core.. I canceled my account with them. Only to find they started taking money again after 3 months.
    I am not going to pay 7p a minute to call them. I believe they need investigating. Have sent my complaint and pointed the lottery commission to look to this URL and read the other complaint.

  10. Completely dodgy organisation stay aware. Their supposed customer services have little or no respect for customers, the overriding ideology is just to take your money and its engineered to make sure you rarely if ever win anything, a few small wins amongst a large body of gamblers just keep people paying.

    Desmond who owns it is personally dodgy too, with his hands in illegal business practices and most of the investment people make goes into his businesses with only a fraction to charity to appear to look good.

    COMPLETELY DODGY. STAY AWAY.

    00
    • Would like to see bona fide proof, as compiling complaints for the Lottery Commission.
      Especially info on this person called Desmond.

      00
      • I was told I had £10 in my account. I went on to the site to play it through and when it was down to about 3p (because of penny scratch cards) it linked me to the page for topping up from my debit card. I didn’t authorise anything and moved away from this page. When I opened my emails I had an email saying I had topped up my account with £20.00. The £20 isn’t showing in my account on the site even though the email says it has taken £20.00. It all feels very dodgy and now I will be having to check my bank account regularly to see whether they have or haven’t taken the money.

        00
  11. £30 pound in total I have won and when you try to transfer funds it says not enough to transfer, total scam.

    00
  12. Couldn’t get my card accepted so many times I gave up will try another lottery.
    Mega raffle completely baffling, my code has 13 characters theirs 12?

    00
  13. Mega raffle numbers and letters have baffled me. I have 2 letters and 10 numbers on a ticket but on website result its 2 letters and 11 numbers?

    00
  14. Get the feeling that the scratch cards only rarely payout and when they do it’s £1 or £2
    Never heard of anyone winning anything more and it’s impossible to find out how much is actually paid out on these games. Might be wrong but not impressed.

    00
  15. Rubbish, been playing every week by DD for two years and never won a penny. Considering the supposed favourable odds its rather strange…

    00
  16. Why is it around the parts of south London where I try to buy health lottery tickets on a Saturday night I used to buy from a branch of Morrison but find the machine is always out of order, and when it’s working some of the staff are not trained on how to operate it.
    I also find that the number of news agents shops that sell health lottery tickets are dwindling very fast, there must be a reason for that.

    00
  17. Tried twice to sign up and both times it failed to recognise my DOB dammed if I’m going to phone them, so signed up for postcode lottery so far paid £20 for 2 months and won £10, a relative won £28k 2 years ago and the £3m prize 3 months ago was won by a local postcode.

    00
  18. Watch for the automatic ticking of ‘play weekly by direct debit’. Even when you have unticked it, they will retick it for you. Unethical. I found no mention of what proportion of the money goes to the NHS and phone support is 7p / min to listen to their advertisement.

    00
  19. Rigged – over 200 lines played now over the course of 6 months and not a single win, not even 2 numbers actually!
    Be careful here, the odds of not winning a single thing after 200 lines played should be one in 10s of thousands/neglible, I have a feeling the numbers get rigged (i’m sure every so often they allow some wins to get through for publicity reasons but I reckon there’s some programming going on here to bring up numbers not picked).
    Oh well back to the classic National Lottery for me least you win a tenner every so often.

    00
    • This lottery has surely got to be rigged switched to it when National lottery doubled in price, 17 lines last night and not one Lucky Dip even! This has happened almost every week now for over a year, at least when my syndicate played the National lottery we won a Lucky Dip or two or three and sometimes even 5 every week. So 17 or more Lucky Dips each week for a year and very few winners somehow it smells!!

      00
  20. Every other shop I go into and ask to play the health lottery the staff look at me blankly and say they do not know how to put it on. Yet they have a health lottery stand in their shop! I have now given up with trying to play the health lottery.

    00
  21. I played one of the mini games on Health lottery and won £10, however it didn’t get added to my account.
    Even though they can see from the amount of money added and spent on the account, they commented that because it wasn’t registered on their computer system, I wouldn’t get my win didn’t even get the £1 back that I spent.
    It was put down to an error on the graphics. It’s in the terms and conditions apparently.
    A right Con. This isn’t the first time this has happened so I have closed my account!!

    00
    • How did you close it? I have been having random amounts taken out of my account and want to close my account but, despite their instructions to do this online, there is no provision for doing it. Getting really frustrated with this setup.

      00
  22. Read the blurb about being much better odds to win than the so called National one, and after 20 years of playing that and winning next to nothing (max £34) decided to switch to Health Lottery playing online. A year later and have won nothing, not once, not even 2-3 numbers.. Waste of time.. Just went back to National Lottery and won £3 two weeks in a row, which was more than I won on the health lottery in a year.

    00
  23. Also got a thing validating my age, but only after I had added my bank details and added some funds to wallet. So, I’m playing for this month and then that’s it – cancelled. Figured that was easily that trying to get my funds back.

    00
  24. When I tried to add money to my wallet, I got a message that there was an error in validating my age. Received a message from lottery support to say that ‘sometimes happens’ and the age verification check they need to conduct would leave a soft footprint on my credit file for 12 months? Have gone back to the Lotto!

    00
  25. I made the mistake of buying a few lines by card payments, then was bombarded with buy six get seven free buy 4 get 6 free, I think I get my gist, these emails I was bombarded with were every night, really, do u have 5,6,7,8,9 or ten pounds a night on lotteries, most people don’t, shame on you health lottery, take my word all I strangers out there, steer well clear.

    00
  26. Well, i was drawn back to the health lottery with one of their offers i spent over £6 before midnight in one transaction and entered mystery beforehand and never received any bonus, sent email to customer services with no reply as yet its false advertising, i said i would never play the health lottery again as i never won anything over a long period but always won on the thunderball same amount of money spent on each, I’m honestly done with the health lottery back to the thunderball.

    00
    • I Have had 15 to 20 lines on each of the last 8 draws and won diddly squat. I have spent hundreds over the last couple of years on this lottery and won diddly squat. I have won nothing on this lottery since it started, but won regular with thunder ball playing less lines. Something not right here in my view, especially how often you are bombarded with offers and bonuses. Comes across as one of those cheap bingo type sites trying to draw you in. I can honestly say I will never play the health lottery again.

      00
  27. Avoid, they try to make you call their helpline always and get charged for the service. They do a Credit check which leaves a footprint on your credit file. Not worth the hassle and your details get passed onto 3rd parties…

    00
  28. Terrible, will be cancelling my DD, take money off every month and never a win so bad I actually forgot all about it until I noticed another £25 off my account!! They use gambling software!!! A true scam! A total rip off.

    00
  29. I am playing this lottery since come out, but most I win was £20 and that was it, since, nothing… I reed all post people putting on, this side, I think I will give up too.. Try something different…

    00
  30. Absolute shite u can’t even put it on in Asda in Corby Northants or in Weldon LONDIS all done by phone and there is always problems …… tut tut shelf your commercials as we all know there actors xxxxxx good health luck xxxx

    00
  31. Another scam, just within the loose margins of the law. Look who owns it the uk’s king of porn….dodgy to say the least. They take nearly a quarter of all money in admin??? More than is given to charity. Disgusting should be illegal like those bookies fobt machines. This country has gone to ruin…full of bent bankers and crooks.

    00
  32. Was doing health lotto online, offers bonus codes that don’t seem to work, then spend more phoning up to get them! Stopped doing health lotto.

    00
  33. I signed up, gave my bank details, then received a welcome email, however the verification email has still yet to appear after numerous requests. I’ve also been in touch twice with no joy not very good customer service I’ll be cancelling DD via my bank as I can’t access my health lottery account.

    00
  34. There are times it is nice to play something that is for a charity – well overall. I like that fact. That I have a chance to give back and maybe win a little bit of something. It doesn’t cost a lot. I am not going to stop playing with other online providers that have those mega lotteries, but I do like this little bit of fun!

    00
  35. I am getting fed up of the monotorneous same winners and female presenter in tv advert of the health lottery. I also are hesitant in doing the health lottery. Or postcode lottery. Due the dispute that any charitable proceeds go to good causes.

    00
  36. The health lottery advertises health bingo on their site and when you go on to their site it has got health lottery logo on so why when you have problems with the bingo they say they have nothing to do with the bingo is this another scam for you to play on a site that does everything to keep your winnings.

    00
  37. I wonder why you don’t mention that this lottery is owned by Richard Desmond – and all the 51 companies which benefit from the lottery are connected to him – nothing to hide have you ?

    00
  38. Started playing this when the Lotto went up to £2 a ticket, paying by direct debit. They take your money a week in advance of the first game(for games up to 4 weeks ahead) and when you do win, pay you out a week after the win. Not exactly a scam in the true sense of the word, but there’s absolutely no reason why winnings can’t be paid into the bank account immediately, so I’d describe it as sharp practice. Since we found out this is what they’re doing, we cancelled the direct debit. The last winnings (only a tenner, admittedly) were supposed to have been paid into my bank a week ago. My bank have no record of it at all. Suppose it had been a thousand, or more? My advice is stay away.

    00
  39. Nice. Thank you for posting this. I’ll definitely check here to see what’s new and inform my coworkers about your writing.

HealthLottery Exposed — Are You Ready to Support the Health Issues?

HealthLottery Review

There are a lot of ways to tour the UK, but one of the latest is through the Health lottery game. It’s a bi-weekly lottery that has relatively good odds benefiting a bunch of different local societies. A minimum of 20% of ticket prices goes to ‘good causes’ which means health-related initiatives. It’s not what we’d call a big jackpot lottery, but it is regular and officially run. I still struggle a bit with these little lotteries that are designed to support specific initiates at the same time we can look at Ontario’s Wintario and what it did for building sports arenas. So how will you win at Healthlottery.co.uk?

The Game Rules at Health Lottery

The lottery game at Healthlottery.co.uk involves choosing five numbers between 1 to 50 PLUS bonus number (sixth) is drawn out of the original 50 numbers. This is straight forward. If you can’t decide what numbers to play or don’t have any favorites, players can take a quick pick which randomly chooses five numbers.

How to Play at Health Lottery

To play at any participating retail outlet register your favorite numbers on a Playcard, choose your numbers or ask for a Quick Pick You can buy tickets just for this week’s draw, or for up to eight weeks in advance. Playing online is through their site, and it is open to anyone.

High Tech at Health Lottery

Players can buy single or multiple tickets from retailers. They also issue ‘playcards’ which allows players to go online or text to play your regular numbers simply. Playing online depends on your concierge lottery service and what they offer. Make sure you are clear on the number of games you want to play. There have been a variety of complaints these last few months by people who have thought they were playing a single game entry but instead ended up signing up for several weeks worth of games.

Who Is Health Lottery?

This is not a national lottery. It’s a group of fifty-one local societies that have come together to run a lottery to support health-related initiatives. These individual societies are licensed by the Gambling Commission and represent a local authority. Each society takes a turn to at benefiting from the income generated from the lottery. On the Health lottery website, they have a calendar they refer to as “The Health Lottery Tour” which shows the Society and the location that benefits each week.

Customer Service at Health Lottery

Besides the regular snail mail and email addresses, Healthlottery.co.uk can be contacted through their hotline during regular business hours. Responses from the email address are also limited to UK business hours. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of reasons to contact them though, as this is a pretty straight forward, officially supervised lottery. It’s just not one of those big jackpots that might represent dollars (pounds) sufficient to buy a Ferrari.

Complaints on Health Lottery Service

Don’t look for complaints here as it’s a nice little regularly run lottery that isn’t big enough to attract a lot of the different email and post scams that seem to plague the big ones. It seems reliable and safe, though not a game for serious lottery players.

Would you mind rating HealthLottery.co.uk?

The Bottom Line about Health Lottery

For serious lottery players, this is not high on the list of places to play. If a player lives in the UK, it is a way to play a lottery at the same time support health issues. Our team definitely would rather play something that has a rollover lottery that builds for those big numbers.

Pros:

Helping Health

Regular Games

Definite Payouts

Cons:

Capped Jackpot

Small Jackpot

We found that the option of playing only one single lottery per week does not compete with other lottery sites that offer lotteries from every part of the world and almost daily. These guys don’t get a thumbs down, but our team won’t be playing there.
