After a brief hiatus, Loteri Cymru is back with an improved game which helps support five fantastic Welsh charities, and we’re pleased to announce that LATCH has been chosen as one of the first beneficiaries.
The new game setup guarantees a minimum of 20% of all lottery proceeds will go to charitable causes. However, Sterling Lotteries and the Charities Trust, who are behind the relaunched Loteri Cymru hope that in time this percentage will increase.
The charities that have been chosen to benefit from Period 1 of Loteri Cymru are:
The profits will be shared equally between LATCH and the other charities, and will be issued on a quarterly basis.
Taking part is easy:
1. Just like the old game, you can pay for your lottery entries by Direct Debit or credit/debit card payment.
2. Pick how many numbers you’d like – it’s still just £1 per weekly entry.
3. Receive your own, unique 6-digit lottery number.
4. A six-digit winning lottery number is drawn.
5. Match up your numbers in the correct place in the sequence to win prizes.
– 6 digits in the correct place wins £25,000
– 5 digits in the correct place wins £1,000
– 4 digits in the correct place wins £25
– 3 digits in the correct place wins 5 entries into the next draw
6. Prizes are sent out straight to you, so you don’t even need to claim!
Denise Henderson, LATCH Manager, commented: ‘It’s such an honour for us to have been chosen as one of the first beneficiary charities of the new look Loteri Cymru. It’s an innovative way for us to raise vital funds, and most welcome since we rely entirely on the public to carry out our essential services for children with cancer and leukaemia as well as their families.’
She continued: ‘Sterling and the Charities Trust have done a wonderful job choosing a broad spectrum of much-loved Welsh charities, and we’re so pleased that we stand to benefit from the generosity of players who can take pride in doing so much good whilst taking a chance on winning some very generous prizes!’
