(UK).- Unique to Coral Lotto, customers have the opportunity to win USD 1.6 million for a £1 (USD 1.6) stake on the outcome of the Health Lottery Draw which is broadcast on the UK's Channel 5 at 9.55pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The Health Lottery is owned by Richard Desmond, owner of Northern and Shell, the media group that includes the Daily Express, Daily Star, OK magazine and Channel 5.
