The Weather lottery at Marwell Zoo

The Weather lottery

The Weather Lottery is the UK’s leading fundraising Lottery. It gives you the chance to win some big cash prizes whilst supporting the charity of your choice. Select Marwell Wildlife through the lottery and your money goes directly to supporting the care of our animals here at the zoo and the conservation programmes we run worldwide.

Entry into the lottery draw for one entry in the draw costs from £1 per week and if your numbers match in the right order for the weather lottery results, you will win the jackpot of £25,000! For every £1 you play we receive 45p.

How it works

The Lottery results are calculated using the temperatures from selected destinations around Europe, including Great Britain, on a particular day each week in order to raise funds for your favourite charity.

Players are assigned 6 numbers when registering that are then checked against the last 6 digits of temperatures in Fahrenheit that are published in the Daily Mail on the day of the draw. See the table below as an example:

If your lucky numbers match the draw result, in the right order, you will win £25,000.

Match 3 columns and you win £2, match 4 and you win £20, match 5 and you win £250, and match all 6 to win £25,000.

When you join, you will be given a 6 digit number for each line you buy. So, the more lines you buy the better your chances are of winning.

If you win a prize, a cheque will be sent in the post which will arrive within 28 days of the draw.

Getting started

To begin playing you need to sign up with the weather lottery and be aged 16 or over. You can either do this by downloading an application form, registering online with either a debit / credit card or direct debit.

We wish you the best of luck!
