Extra prizes on offer in Local Lotto’s Christmas draw


Extra prizes are up for grabs in a special Christmas giveaway being run by the Local Lotto.


Anyone buying a ticket for the Lotto before Saturday 21 December will be entered into a draw to win a six-month membership at Daventry Leisure Centre, a hamper from Waitrose or a Tesco gift card.


That is in addition to the community lottery’s usual cash prizes of between £5 and £25,000, which are up for grabs each week, as well as the opportunity to give a helping hand to local good causes.


Daventry District Council works in partnership with lottery organisers Gatherwell to run the Local Lotto, a weekly online lottery which redistributes half of its ticket sales to local community groups.


Anyone who buys a £1 ticket from can elect for 40p of the money to go to one of 84 local community groups, charities and sports clubs in Daventry District that have signed up to benefit.


A further 10p from each ticket sold goes into a general fund that is distributed by the Council to other local good causes.


Draws are made electronically at 8pm each Saturday night with the results published at as well as via the Local Lotto’s Twitter and Facebook accounts. Winners are also informed by email.


There is a £25,000 jackpot for matching six numbers in sequence, plus prizes for matching five numbers (£2,500), four numbers (£250), three numbers (£25) and two numbers (£5).


Ian Vincent, Chief Executive at Daventry District Council, said: “Local Lotto players have helped raise around £26,000 for good causes in Daventry District in the last year, and we’re pleased to celebrate that with this Christmas giveaway. Please help make a difference in your community this Christmas by supporting good causes in the Local Lotto.”
