Havant Borough Council is one of the first local authorities in the country to launch its own online community lottery to support local good causes by.
Tickets will cost £1 with 60p going towards local good causes, compared to just 28p in the pound for the National Lottery.
The draw will be weekly with a jackpot of £25,000 for a matching sequence of six numbers, other prizes being £2,000, £250, £25 or three free tickets.
When buying a ticket, players will be able to choose which good cause they want to support from a list provided.
Havant Borough’s good causes will be able to set up their own lottery page, and will receive 50p in every pound spent by players using this method. A further 10p in every pound will go into a general good causes fund, with the remainder being put towards prizes, operating costs and VAT.
Players who do not wish to support a specific cause can still take part in the Havant Community Lottery, with 60p of their ticket price going into the general good causes fund. The distribution of this fund will be decided by a panel made up of council and community representatives.
Residents will be able to buy tickets and sign-up from mid-March and the first draw will take place on Saturday 7 April 2018. Full details will be coming soon to our website: https://www.havant.gov.uk/havantcommunity- lottery
