Our lottery scheme to help invest money in youth development and our academy is changing.
As of 5 November, we are changing to a new system that allows you the chance to win up to £25,000, while also continuing to back the future players of the club.
Still priced at £1 per entry, our new lottery providers Unity will also offer up smaller prizes of £1,000 and £25 will also be on offer when the new Well Lottery launches.
What’s more if you sign up before 30 November, you’ll go into the pot to win hospitality at Fir Park and a signed Motherwell jersey.
The final draw of the Well Lotto will be held on Friday, 2 November. Existing Well Lotto players should begin to cancel their standing orders ahead of the new lottery taking place.

How does the new Well Lottery work?
We have teamed up with Unity to run the Well Lottery. For as little as £1 per week, you’ll have the chance to win up to £25,000. At least 50p of every £1 played goes straight to youth development but most importantly, there are no ongoing costs to the club.
How is it different to the old lottery?
New lottery numbers: Every player will be allocated a six-digit lottery number for every entry they wish to play. If you match your number with the winning number drawn on a Saturday in the correct sequence, you can win up to £25,000.
Higher prize fund: Through Unity, we can now offer a higher weekly jackpot of £25,000, with smaller prizes of £1,000, £25 and five entries into the next draw on offer.
More payment options: You can join the lottery by direct debit, credit card or cheque.
Proceeds: Every £1 ticket gains Motherwell FC at least 50p towards the club’s youth development and academy programme.
No change to the ticket price: It’s still £1 to play.
Where does the money go?
Every £1 is split three ways. At least 50p of every £1 comes straight to Motherwell FC, which is put towards the club’s youth Development and academy programme. The other 50p covers the cost of the administration of the lottery, and goes towards the fantastic prize fund.
How do I win?
Every player of the new Well Lottery will be allocated a six-digit lottery number for every entry they wish to play. This idea is to match your number with the winning number that is drawn on a Saturday in the correct sequence. Every entry in the Unity lottery has an equal one in 63 chance of winning a prize.
325764 – random winning number
326574 – your lottery number
This is a three-number match, winning five entries into the next draw.
How do I know if I have won?
Players are notified automatically, and prizes sent out by post, so you do not need to claim your prize. If you would like to check the winning number each week, these can be found on Unity’s website and here on the official Motherwell FC website.
