We have some exciting changes happening to the Geordie Jackpot! From Saturday 7th July 2018, all tickets will now have a 1 in 50 chance to win a cash prize. The same amount of money (50%) will still go toward funding new initiatives across Newcastle, but we’ve made it even easier for players to win a cash prize.
You’ll find answers to most questions below, but if you would like to find out more, please contact our support team.
Why is the prize structure changing?
We are always looking for ways to make the Geordie Jackpot even better for the players and causes we support. This exciting change to the prize structure will mean that more people will have a chance to win a prize each week. There will now be a 1 in 50 chance of winning a prize when you enter into a draw.
Will the cost of tickets increase?
Tickets will remain at £1 per week, with 50p from every ticket sold continuing to go to good causes (that’s more than the National Lottery which gives only 28% back to causes). The remainder is spent on administration and the prize fund
What prizes can be won?
You can now win cash prizes for matching 2 or more numbers in the right order. Take a look at the break down below;

What are the odds of me winning?
The probabilities of winning a prize are outlined below. The chances of winning the £25,000 jackpot is 1 in a million (compared to 1 in 45 million for the National Lottery).
What do I need to do?
You don’t need to take any action. All tickets entered into draws from Saturday 7th July will automatically be included under the new prize structure. If you play via direct debit, the payments will continue in exactly the same way.
What happens if I win?
All winners will be notified via email. We’ll also publish the winning number on the website each week. Winnings will be paid directly into your nominated bank account or you can choose to donate your winning back to Newcastle NE1 Ltd.
