How the lottery works
Playing the lottery
South Staffordshire Community Lottery is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in South Staffordshire. All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit South Staffordshire and its residents.
Play the lottery, Support South Staffordshire - it’s that simple!
Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 per week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000! That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery!
Each ticket will consist of 6 numbers and each number will be between 0 and 9. There will be a draw every Saturday night when a 6 digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2-6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all 6 and you win the JACKPOT!

Your Local Good Causes
The lottery and its prizes are our way of putting the fun in fundraising. The real winners are the good causes. From every £1 ticket sold 60p will go to good causes in South Staffordshire! To put this in perspective when you play the National Lottery 25% goes to good causes – we’ve more than DOUBLED the ticket percentage that goes to good causes.
Even better, you can choose which good cause gets 50p of the 60p (the remaining 10p will be distributed to other good causes).
