Rules and terms


Rotherham Hospice Lottery Rules and terms

All profits from Rotherham Hospice Lottery go directly towards our running costs. From March 2015 Rotherham hospice Lottery will be re-branded as Rotherham Hospice Second Chance Lottery.

  1. New members are sent a unique draw number for each entry purchased. One entry costs £2.00 per week.
  2. Payments made in advance at a minimum of £2.00 will be entered into the draw each week using the unique game number. The draw will take place every Friday including bank holidays. If there is no credit against the number it is not entered into the draw, therefore a player will never be in arrears with their payments.
  3. Payments can be made by cash to a collector if available, by cheque made payable to Rotherham Hospice Lottery, or by standing order. Monthly subscriptions of £8.68 include 68p which accumulates to pay for the 13th week which occurs every 3 months. Standing orders may only be set up by completing the written mandates printed on our leaflets, promotional material, or new member forms.
  4. All prizes in a draw are guaranteed to be won that week with the exception of the £500 roll-over prize. This prize is allocated in a second draw which contains all numbers in credit that week as well as a series of random un-sold numbers. If an un-sold number is randomly selected by the computer the prize is not won and rolls over to the following week. If the prize has not been won when the fund reaches £10,000 all un-sold numbers are removed and the prize is guaranteed to be won in that week. We reserve the right to vary the percentage of un-sold numbers in the draw.
  5. Prize winners will be notified by post within one week of the draw taking place which will include their winning cheque.  A list will appear each week on our website or can be requested from the lottery office at the hospice.
  6. If winning cheques are not cashed within 6 months of issue they will be paid back to the hospice as a donation towards its running costs.
  7. We will always comply with all data protection act requirements and protect your personal data as well as securely storing bank details. Rotherham Hospice Lottery cannot accept liability for the loss or delays in or theft of any communication sent by post, email, or fax, or by any delays in the banking system.
  8. A membership can be cancelled at anytime by e mail or in writing. If notified after noon on Wednesdays the cancellation will be actioned after the coming Friday’s draw. If memberships are in credit at cancellation a full refund will be made by cheque within 7 days if requested.
  9. We reserve the right not to accept an application, or to cancel an existing membership at our discretion.
  10. It is the responsibility of the player to advise us of any changes to their details including address.
  11. Rotherham Hospice Lottery is licensed by The Gambling Commission under the 2005 gambling act. The act states that no person under 18 may join the lottery or purchase a lottery ticket. It is our responsibility to enforce this and it is our right to request proof of age if deemed appropriate.
