How to enter Forest Lottery

Click Here to buy your tickets

Forest Lottery is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in the Forest of Dean. All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit the Forest of Dean and its residents.

Play the lottery, support Forest of Dean - it’s that simple!

Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 a week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000! That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery.

Each ticket has six numbers and each number is between 0 and 9. There will be a draw every Saturday night when a six digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2 to 6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all six and you win the jackpot!

A full list of prizes can be found at

Your local good causes

The lottery and its prizes are our way of putting the fun in fundraising. The real winners are the good causes. From every £1 ticket sold 60p will go to good causes in the Forest of Dean. To put this in perspective when you play the National Lottery 25% goes to good causes – we’ve more than doubled the ticket percentage that goes to good causes.

Even better, you can choose which good cause gets 50p of the 60p (the remaining 10p will be distributed to other local good causes).

Good luck and have fun!

We hope you'll join us in making the Forest of Dean even better and have some fun along the way.
