Support Scouting
& win up to £25,000

Scouts Scotland has teamed up with Lottery management provider Unity to launch our own lottery, offering players the chance to win £25,000 and raise money for Scouting, from £4.34 per month.

Money raised from the lottery will support Scouts Scotland to create opportunities for young people from all backgrounds to benefit from the life-changing skills and experience Scouting brings.

How it works

The draw takes place every Saturday and each entry costs just £1. Scouts Scotland will receive 50p from every £1 weekly entry. You can sign up you can choose to pay monthly at £4.34 per month or pay £52 to play once a week for the whole year. Costs will vary depending on how many entries you choose and over what duration you wish to spread the cost.

Why has Scouts Scotland launched a lottery? 

We think this is an exciting opportunity for adults to support the adventure of Scouting with the added bonus of having the chance to win cash prizes.

Are there any age restrictions?

Yes. Legally, nobody under the age of 16 can play a lottery. And, we strongly discourage the promotion of the lottery to anyone under 18.

What will money raised from the lottery fund?

All income Scouts Scotland receives will go directly towards helping Scouts Scotland develop projects and support to help Scouting reach communities and individuals who would benefit from it the most.

Where does the other half of my pound go?

The remaining 50p goes to Unity, the lottery management company, to cover their administration costs and prizes. By working with Unity, we join an established lottery with more than 170 charity members, and it is only with this and it is only through this partnership that we can offer such an attractive prize, with absolutely no risk to Scouts Scotland.

How do I sign up?

Individual players simply sign up online.

Gambling Awareness

The Unity Lottery makes every effort to behave in a socially responsible manner. It is illegal for anyone under 18 to play Unity and we have measures in place to ensure we do everything in our power to control underage playing. Unity is an incentivised means of supporting your charity. However, before entering into any scheme which involves speculative spending, you are advised to remember the following:

You should gamble only as a means of entertainment not to make money

You should only gamble as much as you can afford to lose

Before gambling, you should set yourself clear limits on how much you can afford to spend

You should not attempt to gamble back money you have lost.

If you think you may have a problem with gambling, contact the gambling support network, GamCare confidentially on 0808 802 0133. Alternatively, visit the GamCare website at
