Melton Community Lottery – Launched – Play to win £25,000

Published Thursday, 24th November 2016 lottery logo

Melton Borough Council is pleased to announce the launch of the Melton Community Lottery.

The lottery has been set up with the aim of raising monies that can be distributed amongst ‘good causes’ which include charities, community groups and societies. 

Local groups and organisations can apply to be part of the lottery by applying via an easy online process - https://www.meltonlottery.co.uk/good-causes

The lottery works with players paying £1 per ticket selecting 6 numbers. Players then select a good cause of their choice which means that 50 pence goes direct to that organisation which is higher than any of the national lotteries. 

We have now opened up the lottery for ticket sales which anyone can purchase as long as you are over the age of 16. To sign up to play the lottery it is also a simple process and all you have to do is visit the new website www.meltonlottery.co.uk and sign up to play. There is a weekly jackpot prize of £25,000 (6 Numbers) guaranteed each week and then a number of other cash prizes based on the number of matching numbers.

Cllr Pam Posnett – Leader of Melton Borough Council has stated ‘We want as many local organisations to benefit as possible and we also want people to play a lottery that not only gives local residents a chance to win cash prizes but also know that the money raised will stay in the Borough of Melton’.

As part of the launch for the first draw all players who sign up before the first draw on 24th December 2016 will be automatically enrolled for a chance to win an ipad air 2.

Support is also given to players and good causes with online support and a dedicated telephone number 01664 738222.
