Where does all the money go?

In 2022, the likelihood of winning a prize was, on average, 1 in 122 in our regular weekly lotteries and 1 in 247 in our seasonal Bumper Draw. Players in our weekly lotteries and the seasonal Bumper Draws are also automatically entered into a weekly Rollover draw. Our Rollover prize increases by £100 each week it isn’t won (in 2022, the likelihood of winning was, on average, 1 in 397,174) and if it reaches £5,000, then one lucky player will be guaranteed to win that week (when the likelihood of winning reverts to the aforementioned weekly lottery and seasonal Bumper Draw averages).

In 2022, £409,353.00 was raised from ticket sales in our regular weekly lotteries and seasonal Bumper Draws, with 12.35% being spent on Prizes, 42.40% spent on Expenses and 45.25%* used to fund the hospices’ care of patients and their families. This translated to a fantastic £185,221.93! (Based upon the Lottery Submissions made to the Gambling Commission during the 2022 calendar year). *The percentage used to fund Hospice care for patients and families is lower this year due to a “player recruitment campaign” that will benefit the Hospices in the longer term.
