Harborough District Community Lottery latestPublished Friday 11 May 2018
The first winners of Harborough District Community Lottery have been revealed.
The first draw on Saturday 5 May 2018 saw 21 lucky winners.
There were 674 tickets sold ahead of the first Harborough District Community Lottery draw, which supported 27 local charities and good causes, which is currently on track to raise over £20,000 a year.
Three lucky winners matched three numbers and won £25.
In addition five bolt-on prizes of £50 Amazon gift cards, to celebrate the start of the scheme, were won by residents from Market Harborough, Great Glen, Lutterworth and Fleckney who were selected at random.
Harborough District Council has set up the online lottery to provide support to local voluntary organisations and charities. Each ticket costs £1 and has a 1 in 50 chance of winning a prize every week. This includes an incredible £25,000 jackpot prize if you match all six numbers, as well as various other cash prizes.
Tickets cost just £1 each - 60% of which goes directly to local good causes, in comparison to just 28% contributed by the National Lottery. The remaining 40% goes back into the prize fund and pays for the running costs.
Players are able to set up a monthly payment in advance with the option to do a three, six or 12 month repeating subscription by direct debit or payment card. Winners are informed over email and will have the money transferred automatically to their chosen bank account.
