Right now, the gorillas are facing an extremely serious crisis.
Once they roamed in healthy numbers through the forests of Rwanda, Uganda and the Congo. But over the last century their population has been devastated; today, there are just 880 mountain gorillas left alive.
Our plan is to stabilise the mountain gorilla population by helping to increase the mountain gorilla population by helping to increase their numbers from 880 to 1,000 by 2018. You can help us to achieve this by entering our lottery for just £1 a week.

The promoter of this Unity Lottery is
The Gorilla Organisation, 110 Gloucester Avenue, London, NW1 8HX
The Gorilla Organisation is licensed and regulated in Great Britain by London Borough of Camden under account number 1170.
A minimum of 50% of the total lottery proceeds go to supporting the work carried out by The Gorilla Organisation, 18.4% on prizes and 31.6% on expenses and administration of the lottery.
The The Gorilla Organisation lottery is a weekly lottery costing £1 per entry, per week. Our weekly lottery enables us to raise much-needed funds to help support our cause. The draw is run every Friday and each entry has the chance to win one of four amazing prizes, including the top prize of £25,000!
The Unity Lottery is a lottery platform which charities of all shapes and sizes can use to run their own fundraising lotteries. The Unity Lottery platform is administered by Sterling Management Centre Limited, a licensed External Lottery Manager (ELM) by the Gambling Commission.
For every £1 played, at least 50p goes directly to The Gorilla Organisation as profit. The other 50p is split between the prize pot and administration costs.
When you win a prize, this is covered by the Unity prize pot. This means that charities using Unity for their fundraising lotteries can offer a £25,000 jackpot and smaller prizes to their players.
Each £1 entry has a 1 in 63 chance of winning one of four fantastic prizes. Every entry in Unity has an equal chance of winning, no matter which charity is being supported or how many players that good cause has in their lottery.
Yes, every entry has an equal chance of winning, and the winning numbers are drawn at random.
For every £1 you play each week, you'll receive a unique 6-digit lottery number.
Every Friday, a winning number is drawn at random. Match your digits to win up to £25,000!
The The Gorilla Organisation lottery is a number match game. We generate a random 6-digit winning number sequence. If your digits are in same positions as the digits in the winning number sequence, you win a prize!
For example, if the winning number sequence was 123456, the lottery number 163057 would be a 3-digit winning match; because 3 digits are positioned in the same place in the sequence.
3 digit match = 5 entries into the next draw
4 digit match = £25
5 digit match = £1,000
6 digit match = £25,000
