A: The jackpot number is chosen randomly by a third party. The guaranteed prizes are drawn as a raffle, whereby the selection of winning tickets is based upon the selection of a ticket at random from all the eligible tickets for that draw.
Q: What are the odds of winning a prize?
A: The odds of winning the jackpot are one in a million. The chances of winning the guaranteed prizes vary according to the number of tickets bought and entered in the lottery each week.

A: The first draw will be on Sat 7 October 2017 and then every week thereafter.
Q: How do winners find out that they've won?
A: Every week, all winners will be advised by e-mail. The winning number will also be published on our website, Facebook and Twitter each week following the draw.

A: Your winnings will be paid directly into your nominated bank account or you can choose to donate your winnings back to Newcastle NE1 Ltd.
Q: How do I pay?
A: You can either set up a monthly recurring payment plan via Direct Debit or payment card, or pay for a block of 1, 3, 6 or 12 months of weekly tickets on a non-recurring basis.
There is no commitment to stay in the lottery and players can choose to leave at anytime.
Unfortunately we can’t accept payments for a single week as payment processing costs would impact the amounts we could provide to prizes and the lottery fund.
