Playing the Solent Students’ Union lottery is an easy way to support our students whilst being in with the chance to win a fantastic £25,000 every week.

Ideal for our corporate partners, University staff, Solent alumni and all those lottery fans, our local Southampton lottery is a great way to give a little back whilst being in with a chance of winning fantastic weekly prizes.

We believe that supporting students is good for us all. By playing our lottery from just £1 per week you will be helping us to provide our student services which offer representation, advice and assistance to students as well as social, cultural, sporting and recreational activities. 

Supporting our young people to develop and grow aids them in their journey to become key members of our society; our architects, psychologists, engineers and business managers.

Services such as the Night Bus, our Student Advice service and the provision of Societies are all funded by the SU in order to keep our students safe and improve their University experience.

For as little as £1 per week, that’s £4.34 per month, you can help us to continue to provide these important services.


£1 per week - Could fund the Night Bus for a night of safe travel around the city*

£2 per week - Could fund a day's worth of student support from our student advice service*

£3 per week - Could fund half a week of society activities and support providing access to all of your favourite interests and hobbies*

*Figures based on a year's worth of play


How does it work?

For just £1 per week you will be allocated with a six digit Unity Lottery number, which will remain yours for as long as you wish to keep playing. You can purchase more than one number if you wish.

Every Saturday, the lucky winners are selected at random and prize cheques issued and posted directly to you, so there is no need for you to claim. You must be 18 or over to enter. Winners have to match 3, 4 5 or all 6 digits of the winning number in the correct place in the sequence.


  • 6 digits in the correct place wins £25,000

  • 5 digits in the correct place wins £1,000

  • 4 digits in the correct place wins £25

  • 3 digits in the correct place wins 5 entries into the next draw

Winning ticket example:

956721 Winning Number

976731 Your Lottery Ticket

This ticket matched 4 digits in the correct place in the sequence and won £25

Why not set up a lottery syndicate with your friends or work colleagues? By playing the lottery with others you can share the fun and increase your chances of winning. 
Playing along with 4 of your friends means you will have 5 tickets entered into every draw. Sharing that jackpot could pay for one awesome end of year holiday with money left over for all sorts.

From this point, we will then take your payment at the next available collection date, which occur on the 1st, 8th, 16th and 24th of each month. Once the payment has been taken, we can then enter the player into the next available draw. All in all, this process tends to take around 4 weeks.
