Local Lotto Review
Don’t you love these cute little lotteries that support local causes? Take Daventry District Council and their online lottery game. This is a homegrown lottery that uses the Australian National Lottery Super 66 game results each Saturday (Aussie time) for their winning numbers. They use 50% of the ticket price to support a bunch of local causes. You’re not going to win a mega jackpot here, at the same time it’s a bit of fun for a nice prize.
The Game at Local-lotto.co.uk
Players choose 6 numbers from 1 to 9. The idea is to get them in the correct order. There are five levels of prize tiers. If you get all six numbers in the correct order the jackpot is £25,000 down to £5 for getting 2 numbers correct. Okay, Local Lotto should go into their terms and conditions and change the 2 number prize of 3 free tickets. Or maybe they change the £5. Tickets lines cost £1.
Getting Your Winnings
Winning numbers are published on local-lotto-co.uk’s web site. Keep in mind the time difference as the basis of the numbers is a game played in Australia. Winners are told they won by email and put on their website. There is no information on quickly winners get their cash.
Who Can Play?
This cute little game is only for residents of Great Britain and for players 16 years and older. Oh – and you can’t get tickets or get prizes for someone else.
Local Lotto Terms and Conditions
Okay, so their terms and conditions could be a bit more extensive in including more information on what happens when you win, how you get your money. Then again, this is a lottery to fundraise for local causes. There is also separate terms and conditions if you have a local cause that wants to jump on the bandwagon.
