Human baby top prize in new UK Lottery game

baby-in-armsA HUMAN baby is the top prize in a bizarre new lottery game which has been given the go-ahead in Britain.


The controversial game will hand the winner £25,000 ($40,000) of IVF treatment at a fertility clinic.

And the plan has just been granted a Gambling Commission licence giving the green light for the IVF lottery which, if successful, will create new parents every month.

Tickets will be £20 ($32) and there are no bars on entry so single, gay and aging players will be free to take part in the draw which launches 30 July.

The lottery is being run by a fertility charity called  To Hatch and profits will be ploughed back into providing online support for childless couples and those experiencing trouble conceiving.

If the game takes off tickets could be sold in stores nationwide.

To Hatch founder Camille Strachan said the lottery was a response to NHS trusts cutting £5000-a-time IVF because of budget restrictions.

She added: “We hope the To Hatch Lottery can ease the burden of the NHS and reduce the stress slightly on some of those who are struggling.”
