How to play…
- Send in your completed standing order details on the application form, which can be downloaded here: Rockinghorse Lotto standing order form. Select your four numbers between 1 and 31 (inclusive) for each entry.
- Pay regularly through your local door to door collector – to find out if there is a collector in your area, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will confirm your entries in writing or by email. Once your payment has been received, you will be in the next draw. For standing order entries, payments are taken on the 1st or 15th of the month.
What are the prizes?
The prize starts at £1,000 for anyone matching their four numbers with those drawn. If there is more than one entry matching the four numbers, then the jackpot is split. All players matching three numbers win £25. If no one matches the four numbers, the jackpot increases by £100 and is carried forward to the next week. If the jackpot reaches £5,000 then a special draw will take place to guarantee a winner. After the jackpot has been won, the prize is reset to £1,000.
When do the draws take place?
Draws take place each week on a Wednesday with the results published at the foot of this page. All winners will receive payment automatically by cheque so there is no need to claim.
What happens to the money we raise?
Funds received from the Rockinghorse Lotto help us continue making life better for sick children and their families.

Our latest Lotto jackpot winner…
Our eleventh Rockinghorse Lotto winner is Emma Stapley from Lindfield, winning £1,900.
Emma has been playing the Lotto for around three years, since just before she got married. She also gave her wedding guests the Rockinghorse pins from Posh Totty as wedding favours. Emma started supporting us when her son was born 20 years ago: “He was born three months premature and spent about four months in the Trevor Mann Baby Unit in Brighton and the Special Care Baby Unit in Haywards Heath.
“This is my first win on the lotto. When I started playing the Lotto I just want to support the charity, I didn’t think about winning but it’s nice to win! We’re going to use some of it towards a honeymoon that we never got and helping out my son now. And we’re also going to make a donation to Rockinghorse.”
Well done Emma and thanks for your support.
Previous jackpot winners…
Our tenth Rockinghorse Lotto winner is Oliva from Hassocks!
Olivia said: “I was so shocked to win! We’ve supported Rockinghorse for a long time because so many of our family were helped by them – especially my brother when he was younger.”
Olivia is currently in the process of renovating her house so this win will really help towards that.
Our ninth Rockinghorse Lotto winner is Elizabeth Dick from Brighton!
Elizabeth, a physiotherapist who works for Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals, has been playing the Rockinghorse Lotto for the last five years: “We started doing the Lotto after both our children used the Alex and we became very aware of the fantastic job Rockinghorse do. It’s great that we have this available for every child in Sussex and we’re glad to be able to give back something that they have given to us.”
Elizabeth hasn’t decided what to use her winnings on just yet, she’s just really pleased to have won!
Our eighth Rockinghorse Lotto winner has been announced! The lucky winner was Christine from Hove. As there were no winners from the main weekly draw and the jackpot had reached it’s £5,000 limit, the lotto organisers undertook a guaranteed winner draw and Christine was the winner.
Christine has been doing the lotto for 4 years and is now looking forward to spending her winnings on a nice holiday next year. She is also pleased to continue to support Rockinghorse and has generously donated £300 of her winnings back to Rockinghorse!
We have our seventh Rockinghorse Lotto winner! The lucky winner was 71-year-old Jean Street from Yapton in West Sussex (pictured below with Lotto agent Jeff Hayler). She matched all four winning numbers to secure the £5,000 lotto jackpot for the draw on Wednesday 10 July 2019.
Commenting on her win, she said, “I’ve never won anything before and I’m absolutely delighted to be able to support Rockinghorse. I’m planning on spending some of the money on a new wheelchair.” Congratulations Jean!
Congratulations to 83-year-old Mrs Pam Tew from Mile Oak in Portslade (pictured below with Rockinghorse Lotto agent Mike Pauwels) who scooped the £5,000 Rockinghorse Lotto jackpot back in September 2018!

I like to support local children’s charities, and Rockinghorse is such a good cause. I am delighted with my win!”.

Congratulations to our third jackpot winner — Mr Darbon from Brighton who won the £1,400 Lotto jackpot at the end of May — our second winner in as many months!
