Best free UK lotteries: DOB Lotto, Pick My Postcode & more

Sick of forking out for National Lottery or Euromillions tickets? Here are the best free UK lotteries.

If you like the thrill of playing the lottery without having to pay for a ticket, there are a range of free daily lotteries available.

The prizes aren’t anywhere near as big as the National Lottery or Euromillions, but you don’t lose anything as all of them cost nothing to enter.

Here’s a guide to the UK’s best free lotteries.

Pick My Postcode – Daily prizes start from £800

With this free lottery, you need to visit the website – – and enter your postcode and email address. Your postcode will then be entered into the draw every day.

The site gives away at least £800 a day, but again if it isn’t claimed within 24 hours it rolls over. In the past, this has meant the prize fund has grown to as much as £2,400. 

You just need to remember to log in every day to see if you have won. But, as this is a postcode lottery you’ll share the jackpot with any of your neighbours who are also registered on the site and remember to check the draw.

The more neighbours who sign up the more chance there is of your postcode getting drawn, but you will have to share the prize.

DOB Lotto - £50 daily jackpot

Like the Free Postcode Lottery, you sign up on the website – - and enter your date of birth into the draw. If your day, month and year of birth are drawn you will win £50.

You have to log in and claim your prize, it won’t be paid out automatically.

Lucky Phone – Win up to £1,000

This is another daily prize draw like the Free Postcode Lottery or DOB lotto, except this time you enter your phone number in order to win.

Prizes range from £10 to £1,000 and the draw takes place at midnight. If you match every digit of your phone number you’ll win but you need to claim your prize the following day or it is lost.

There are daily draws for £10, £20 and £1,000 but there are only guaranteed winners for the first two draws.

Number Plate Lotto – Daily prize starting from £10

By now I assume you are starting to get the idea with these free lotteries.

This one draws a random vehicle number plate every day. You register your number plates at and if you match you win. Again, you have to check the site daily in order to claim.

The prize starts at £10, growing each day it isn’t claimed.

Free Emoji Lottery – £5 daily prize

With this one, you select five emojis and enter them. If your emojis match the ones drawn daily you could win the prize. You’ll need to check daily to see if you’ve won.

The prizes are small (the jackpot on the date of publishing was £40, while the biggest-ever jackpot is £90), but again it costs nothing to enter so who are we to complain?
