It seems to be all change over at the Health Lottery recently. Firstly, they launched a major site enhancement with the addition of Health Millions and then they announced the increased charity donation from 20.3% to 25.5%.
Let’s take a look at both announcements in a bit more detail...
Firstly, Heath Millions is Launched
Health Millions is where the Health Lottery is expanding into Bet On Jackpots/Insured Jackpots model (see our guide for more information). This gives the user the possibility to bet on a wide range of international lotteries (US Powerball, US Mega Millions, Irish Lotto, etc) and the possibility of winning much bigger jackpots.
It’s important to note that although the Health Lottery and Health Millions sound very similar, they’re actually quite different.
|Overview||Traditional lottery||Range of Insured Jackpots (US Powerball, US Mega Millions, Irish Lotto, etc)||Insured Jackpot|
|How to play?||Select 5 balls from 1-50||Varies by lottery||Select 6 numbers 1-50 plus 1 Health Ball 1-5|
|Where can I play?||In shops & online||Online only||Online only|
|How much can I win?||£250K||Varies by lottery||£5 Million|
|Donates to Good Causes?||Yes||No||No|
|Is it legal and licensed in the UK?||Yes||Yes||Yes|
Essentially, by launching Health Millions the Health Lottery is giving the user more choice. The Health Lottery itself is comparatively poor value for money, however, it does donate money to good causes. If you’re betting on the outcome of lotteries such as Eurojackpot, MegaMillions, Powerball, Irish Lotto and now the Health Millions - you get better odds of a return and they have much larger jackpots. However the Bet on Jackpot operators, like Lottoland, aren’t required to donate to good causes. What motivates you to play the lottery - value or good causes

Secondly, Good Cause Donations Are Increased
On the 14th July 2020 The Health Lottery announced that they would be increasing their good cause donations by 25%. This means where previously they were donating 20.3% of ticket sales to good causes, now, they’re donating 25.5%.
Does this affect the Health Lottery odds of winning? No, this is just an increase in the percentage of your ticket sale that goes to charity. Will the ticket price be increasing? Currently, there is no talk of an increase in ticket price.
Through an announcement on their website, the Health Lottery have stated that the increase in good cause donations is in response to the global pandemic. The majority of money raised by the Health Lottery goes towards health related causes.
