How it Works
- Our page is https://www.yourschoollottery.co.uk/lottery/school/st-albans-girls
- Each School Lottery prize pot is determined by the amount of £1 tickets sold each week.
- Each ticket purchased online (via a direct debit system which can be cancelled at any time) consists of 6 numbers between 0 and 9
- There are TWO prize draws per ticket purchased: the STAGS fund which is a guaranteed winner for our school every Saturday which is drawn on a raffle basis, the winner is selected by a computer at the School Lottery HQ and then each Saturday ALL schools' lottery ticket numbers are entered into a JACKPOT draw, where if you match all 6 numbers you win the £25k JACKPOT!
- Your £1 ticket cost is spilt as follows: 40% goes to the school PTA fund, 36% is put into the school prize kitty and 24% is given to School Lottery for admin and VAT
- All T&Cs with information such as how long you need between signing up and your numbers going 'live' are on the website and can be found here: https://www.yourschoollottery.co.uk/game-rules
