The RAF Sports Lottery draw takes place each Friday with the winning ticket numbers drawn at random by our Lottery provider. When we receive the results, we personally contact each winner to inform them of their win. Once confirmed, we announce the good news with details of our lucky winners. Please find the latest results below!


Don’t forget, if you move unit, your contact details need revising or your serving status changes, then please contact Sterling Lotteries on 0370 050 5893 to update your account.

Here are all of the results from RAF Sports Lottery draws since the first draw of the new game on 1 April 2016. It can sometimes take time for us to contact winners, however we do hold prizes and once we have notified them we update the results. If a winner is listed as ‘Awaiting Player Contact’ this means we are yet to notify them and will be actively trying to contact them. If a winner is listed as ‘ANON’ this means the individual wishes to remain anonymous or cannot be named for security reasons.

The RAF Sports Lottery is open to currently serving RAF personnel, RAF Cadets/Recruits in Phase 1 training (or beyond) and former serving RAF members, giving them the chance to win from 10 guaranteed prizes each week, whilst also generating funding for the RAF Central Fund charity. Sign up online today on our Play Now page for your  chance to win from £25,000 worth of prizes every week.

Winners Stories



Fg Off Robson

RAF Benson

Ticket 78841

Sport takes commitment, passion and hard work but the benefits and friends that you make on the way are incredible!

Alex said: “I joined the Royal Air Force in June 2016 and began representative sport as soon as I could, after graduating from training. I had heard about all of the amazing opportunities open to personnel when playing representative sport and already, within my first year of Service, I have represented the RAF Ladies Golf Team at the 2017 Inter-Services Championships. I have been to Lisbon (Portugal) with RAF Badminton and soon will be beginning my training schedule with RAF Netball, who have a Competitive Sports Tour in Australia in 2018. Sport takes commitment, passion and hard work but the benefits and friends that you make on the way are incredible! Thanks to the RAF Central Fund for the funding towards these sports and for the winnings!”




Sgt Saunders

RAF Waddington

Ticket 366000

I remember saying “I never get anything on the RAF Sports Lottery!”

Tom shared; “Now I think I’m one of the most undeserving people to win a £1000 on the RAF Sports Lottery because I have been fortunate enough to go the ski champs in Saalbach, snowboard in Holland, play hockey in Australia, Singapore, Cyprus and South Africa, all with the assistance of the RAF Central Fund. So if you, like me, have ever said “I never win anything on the Sports Lottery”, then please don’t leave it down to chance or luck, look for sporting opportunities, Expeds or funding, and if you’re not already a member then join the RAF Sports Lottery, because you could be a lucky winner of £1000 or  even £10,000!”




SAC O'Callaghan

RAF Brize Norton

Ticket 179433

It certainly wasn’t an April Fool for Kieran who was lucky enough to win the top prize of £10,000 from the very first draw of the new RAF Sports Lottery!

Kieran shared: “This money will give me and my wife a head start and a good foundation to buy our first family home together, while also giving us the chance to potentially enjoy a holiday or two ‐ it’s amazing to have won this much, I still can’t believe it! A huge thank the RAF Sports Lottery, not only for the money I’ve won but for the continued support in funding towards previous expeds I’ve been on.”




Sgt Blomquist

RAF Northolt

Ticket 625658

It’s not a wind-up! This win has made for some great father, son adventures.

Sven shared: “I honestly thought it was a wind up from work as I’ve been playing for nearly 15 years. I’ve been telling the lads at work to sign up to the new system as you have to be in it to win it, I now realise that was a great decision!  In the past I’ve seen some elaborate wind ups convincing people they’d won so I wanted to wait till the money was in my bank before celebrating. I’ve been saving to take my son to Disney World, Orlando for 3 years. A big chunk of my winnings will go towards that which has helped me so much. I also used some of the money for a great day out in London with my son, topped off with some Lego for him!”
