Yup you heard that right!

Britain’s Gambling Commission has granted a license to fertility charity, To Hatch, to run the game from July 30.

The controversial IVF lottery will launch in Britain this month giving prospective parents the chance to win thousands of pounds toward expensive fertility treatments in top clinics.

The lottery is open to single, gay and elderly players as well as heterosexual couples struggling to start a family.

Winners will be put up in a luxury hotel before being chauffeur-driven to a treatment center. They will also get a mobile phone and a personal assistant to help with queries.

The are offered standard IVF treatment, and if it fails, reproductive surgery, donor eggs and sperm or a surrogate birth.

Tickets cost 20 pounds and are bought online. Every month, winners can scoop 25,000 pounds’ ($40,175) worth of the tailor-made treatments.

There have been many people coming out against it.

Britain’s fertility regulator, The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority said using IVF as a prize was “wrong and entirely inappropriate.”

“It trivializes what is for many people a central part of their lives,” it added in a statement.

Josephine Quintavalle, from the campaign group Comment on Reproductive Ethics, said “creation of human life should not be reduced to a public lottery … this demeans the whole nature of human reproduction.”
