This time of year often sees the launch of specific Christmas lotteries. The most famous is (obviously) El Gordo, the Spanish Christmas lottery. The Channel Islands also have one, but there are other regional lotteries too. Some have extra Christmas bonus editions of regular draws. Take West Somerset – home to Exmoor, the West Somerset Railway, and Cleeve Abbey. It has a regular draw but there is now a bonus Somerset West Christmas Lottery draw. Tickets on sale now, closing on the 19th December. On top of supporting some amazing local causes, you can win some great prizes courtesy of the administrator..
How Does the Somerset West Christmas Lottery Work?
As with other areas, it’s been a difficult year. West Somerset is a tourist area thanks to a national park and miles of stunning beaches. The Somerset West Christmas Lottery is in addition to the weekly draw that runs all year round. Not only will all entrants have the chance to win up to £25,000 every week, anyone who buys a ticket in December are entered automatically into draws to win one of five bundles of an Amazon Echo Show 8, an Echo Dot 3rd Gen, or a Fire 7 Tablet. The lottery administrator provides these extra prizes for the Christmas draw.
Tickets for the Somerset West Christmas Lottery cost £1. A massive 50p from every ticket goes towards local non-profits and social causes all the year around. It’s also a great platform for local small businesses to get their name out there at a difficult economic time. It’s hoped that these new prizes, available for Christmas only, will generate more interest in the weekly draws. The more people enter, the higher the big prize and the more money that goes to local causes.
