How to Play Quick Pick
Players can now choose to select their own numbers using their blue Playcard or have lines randomly generated at the point of sale, regardless of whether they are purchased online or from authorised retailers. All players need to do is purchase entries for 50p per line and specify how many draws in which they wish to play. Each entry contains five numbers between 1 and 50.
Here are the prize divisions, prize amounts and odds of winning for the game:
|Match||Win||Odds of Winning|
|Match 5 of 5||£25,000||1 in 2,118,760|
|Match 4 of 5||£100||1 in 9,417|
|Match 3 of 5||£10||1 in 214|
|Match 2 of 5||£1||1 in 15|
Odds of winning any 50p Quick Pick prize are 1 in 14.
The £25,000 top prize is guaranteed for up to 40 players, provided that the total prize pool in a given draw does not exceed the value of £1 million. Players who match just two numbers will make double what they spent on a single ticket.
Claiming 50p Quick Pick Prizes
The claims procedure for 50p Quick Pick prizes depends on whether a winner bought their ticket online or from an authorised retailer. If you purchased a physical ticket and have matched two or three of the five numbers drawn, you can redeem your winnings at any Health Lottery retailer. Players who match four main numbers can claim their prize at a participating Post Office, and those who match all five main numbers will need to call the Health Lottery on 0844 375 55 55.
If you bought a 50p Quick Pick ticket online, all prizes except for the Match 5 prize will be paid into your account for you to withdraw on your own. If you match all five main numbers in a given 50p Quick Pick draw, you will have to call the Health Lottery on 0844 375 55 55 to arrange for the payment of your prize.
