Playing responsibly

The Weather Lottery has a responsibility to ensure playing the lottery is fun. We take this very seriously.

The Weather Lottery makes every effort to behave in a socially responsible manner. It is illegal for anyone under 16 to play and we have measures in place to ensure we do everything in our power to control underage playing. The Weather Lottery is an incentivised means of supporting your charity. However, before entering into any scheme which involves speculative spending, you are warned to remember the following:-

  • You should gamble only as a means of entertainment NOT to make money.
  • You should NOT try to gamble back money you have lost.
  • 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.

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