Playing a lottery


Assalam O Allikum I have current account here in UK and the bank I am with rewards £2.00 if I have incoming of £750 every month. I take this £2.00 and buy a lottery. I have been doing this for last 2 years although never won. I plan to spend any winnings, if there will be, to help people in need, I know many in current economic climate. Please guide me on above.

Thank you for your question. Gambling is not permitted even with spare or unexpected earnings. The money won would not be halal.
