Brits, did you Know that you can play the National Lottery by subscription?

Few people are aware that you can play the National Lottery by subscription. Retailers lose their 5% commission if their customers play by subscription, so its hardly surprising that information is hard to come by.


First - track down a form!

For the obvious reasons stated above, you are probably going to find that locating a paper subscription form is going to be about as easy as the proverbial needle in a haystack. Don't waste any time asking your local retailer for one; just call 0845 278 8000 and they'll post you one, or download one from the web at: 

http://www.national-lottery.co.uk


The easy way to play

Subscribers can choose to enter the Wednesday draw only, the Saturday draw only or both draws. You can enter up to seven sets of numbers per Subscription for 26, 52 or 104 consecutive draws. And you can do it from the comfort of your own home. Your selected numbers will be automatically entered in The National Lottery for your chosen number of draws. Each set of six numbers you choose will cost you £1 for each draw for which they are entered. You will be sent a Subscription Certificate confirming your numbers and the draw dates for which they have been entered. Approximately six weeks before your Subscription expires, Camelot will send you a renewal form and ask you if you wish to continue subscribing to The National Lottery.

Your address for correspondence must be in the UK, and not the Isle of Man, Channel Islands or British Forces Post Office.


Subscription as a gift

You may decide to give someone a Subscription to The National Lottery as a gift. Remember that they must be 16 or over. To make this gift personal, a message can be printed on the Subscription Certificate - all you need to do is complete the gift section on the Subscription application form. We will send the Subscription Certificate to the person you name as recipient and you must check with them that the Certificate correctly shows the numbers you selected and the appropriate number of draws. If you give the Subscription as a gift, it will take the effect of an assignment of your rights under the Subscription. In those circumstances, the person you have nominated will be the person entitled to any prize under the Subscription. Completion of the gifting section of the Subscription application form takes effect as notice to Camelot Group plc that you are assigning your rights in the Subscription to the person nomination and you personally will have no further rights in the Subscription.


Making life even easier - they tell you if you have won!

Camelot will automatically check your numbers for you and will contact you if you have won the jackpot or any prize over £10,000. Prizes over £10,000 must be claimed in person from a National Lottery Regional Centre. If you win from £501 to £10,000, Camelot will send you a claim form which must be completed to claim your prize. For prizes of £500 or below, they will send you a cheque by post within seven days.


So, what happens next?

After Camelot have processed your applications, they will send you a Subscription Certificate. The date of the first draw in which your numbers will be entered will be shown on the Subscription Certificate. It will take about four weeks from submitting your application to your numbers being entered into the draw. Your numbers remain the same for the 26, 52 or 104 draws that you have chosen. You are responsible for checking your numbers, draw day(s) and number of draws on your Subscription Certificate. Should the details on your Certificate not correspond with your choices, you must notify Camelot immediately by calling 01923 425086 or notify them by post at least eight days before the first draw date on your Subscription Certificate. If your cheque or Direct Debit payment fails, your numbers will not be entered into the draw. Camelot will notify you that your Subscription is not valid and will also give you the opportunity to re-apply. Keep a note of your chosen set(s) of numbers.


How to pay

You can pay by cheque, postal order or Direct Debit (see application form for details). If you have decided to pay by Direct Debit, you don't need to pay the full amount immediately. Payments will be collected during the Subscription period from your bank account in advance, on or shortly after a pre-arranged date every 13 draws. These dates will be included on your Certificate. Remember, you cannot use Direct Debit to purchase a Subscription as a gift.

    Unfortunately, that information does not help anyone outside of the UK.  You must be a resident of the UK in order to use that Web site.

            I found the bet:


            • $10 on whether or not it comes to a vote in the Senate in 2004
            • $10 on whether it passes in the Senate in 2004
            • $10 on whether or not it becomes law and goes online in 2005

                  No, you don't need to be a resident of the UK, you just need a UK address.

                    there are ways of playing the uk lotto from abroad but you have to do it by joining a syndicate.

                    good taste stops me from posting details but if you search, you can find a way.
