We exist to change lives

But we couldn't do it without you

Together we're changing lives

It happens in dramatic, never-the-same-again ways. And in essential, life-is-a-little-better ways. We exist to change lives, to maximise returns to National Lottery Projects. But we couldn't do it without you – with every game you play, you make the UK better – play makes it possible.

Changing lives responsibly

We're the nation's chance to dream. Our games are fun and exciting, and should always remain so. That's why for us, players are the priority.

What does this mean to you? It means we always encourage Healthy Play. It means lots of people playing a little, rather than a few playing a lot. We're all about changing lives for the better.
