Weekly Prize Draw

All of the profits raised from our hospice draw provide vital funding to help St Margaret’s support patients and families facing the challenge of a life-limiting illness.

It costs just £1 per week to play St Margaret's Weekly prize Draw and become eligible to win one of our cash prizes.

*When we run the draw for our 3rd prize (rollover) our lottery software reduces the likelihood of winning that prize. If the rollover is not won the prize money is rolled-over to the next draw and the 3rd prize increases by £250. **If the rollover reaches £10,000 we guarantee the prize will be won in that week’s draw.
 
The draw takes place every Friday (we’ll always give advance notice if the draw day changes) and each chance costs just £1. The first prize is £1,000 with other cash prizes up for grabs every week. Each prize will be won every week apart from our rollover prize. 
Our lottery software randomly produces the outcome of the draw using a Random Number Generator and a winning number can only be selected once in the same draw.
Every ticket purchased has 1 in 464 chance of winning one of our weekly prizes (information based on the average number of players in draws between November 2020 and January 2021).
The exact chance of winning varies each week depending on the number of tickets sold.
