Tickets cost just £1 each, which is half the price of the National Lottery, and deliver an exceptional 60% back to local good causes, in comparison to just 28% contributed by the National Lottery. The remaining 40% goes back into the prize fund and pays for the running costs. Powys County Council does not take a penny from ticket sales.
Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance of winning a prize every week. This includes an incredible £25,000 jackpot prize if you match all six numbers, as well as various other cash prizes.
It is free for good causes to join and is intended to support a wide range of charities and groups operating in Powys that deliver projects which have a beneficial impact on the local community.
There is also a central Powys Lotto Small Grants Fund for those people who do not want to support a specific group where charity, voluntary and community sector organisations can bid towards the costs of a specific activity or for the purchase of small items of equipment up to £2,000 once a year. Full guidance, and details of how to apply for this grant funding will be published in Autumn 2019.
