The Gambling Commission has granted a licence to charity To Hatch, tickets for the controversial game will be sold online at £20 each and a winner selected every month. The lottery begins on July 30 and those entering could win £25,000 worth of tailor-made fertility treatments at one of the country's top clinics. It will not just be limited to couples - single, gay and elderly players will also be able to take part. Winners will be given accommodation in a luxury hotel before being chauffeur driven for treatment. If standard IVF fails, they can be offered donor eggs, reproductive treatment or even a surrogate birth.
