The BTF has teamed up with Unity Lottery, the nation's charity lottery, to offer you a chance to win £25,000 every week!

 

This is a lottery with a difference. We receive profits directly from the number of lottery players we recruit so we need your support. For every £1 spent - 50p comes directly to us as profit.

For just £1 a week you will be allocated your unique six digit Unity Lottery number which remains yours for as long as you wish to keep playing. You can purchase more than one number if you wish. Every Saturday the lucky winners are selected at random and prize cheques are issued and posted directly to you, so there's no need for you to claim. WInners have to match 3.4.5 or 6 digits of the winning number in the correct place in the sequence.

  • 5 digits in the right place wins £1,000
  • 4 digits in the right place wins £25
  • 3 digits in the right place wins 5 entries into the next draw

You have a 1 in 63 chance of winning a prize!

There is no sharing of prizes so if you match all 6 numbers you win £25,000 whether you are the only jackpot winner or not.

All Trials

Clinical trials are used to test new and existing treatments. Sometimes the results (the overall picture of the treatment’s effects) are not published - which means that other medical researchers and doctors cannot use them. If you would like to change this situation to the ultimate benefit of patients, please sign the AllTrials petition.AllTrials petition
