The SSFC Lucky 4 Lotto draw is set to move into an exciting new era.
Participants will now have the opportunity to sign up to the draw on a new online system, opening up the game to South Shields supporters across the world.
The club has partnered with Clubforce, which works with over 700 sports clubs across the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland on their lotto draws.
The easy-to-use platform will remove the need for cash and in-person lotto ticket purchases, making it simpler than ever before to enter. However, the option to continue to play the game in the traditional way will remain open to supporters.
Funds raised by the SSFC Lucky 4 Lotto will go into a dedicated bank account, and will be used solely to support projects championed by the draw. Details of the first initiative it will back will be released ahead of the first draw, which will take place on Wednesday, July 5th.
In addition, the more people who sign up to the weekly draw, the higher the jackpot will climb. The previous two jackpot winners have earned £4,300 and £5,100 respectively.
The club envisages higher jackpots as a result of the migration to an online system, and we will also introduce weekly prizes to give players more opportunities to win than ever before.
The SSFC Lucky 4 Lotto draw will take place on a weekly basis, and those who join the online system will receive weekly emails with the results, and the chance to sign up for the next draw. There will also be the option to commit to multiple weeks.
Weekly results will also be posted on the club’s website and social media channels, and the game will be promoted regularly online and in posters at 1st Cloud Arena.
The club appeals for as many people as possible to sign up for the game, in doing so giving themselves a chance to win big prizes, while simultaneously supporting projects which will benefit the wider club and its supporters.
It costs £1 per line to enter, and players are asked to select four numbers between 1 and 40.
Four numbers are randomly selected in each draw and players must match all four to win the jackpot. Each week that the jackpot is not won, the amount of numbers available to select from will decrease by one until there are just 20 numbers left in the draw.
Those who have previously been involved in the game who would like to be part of the new online system are asked to send an email to email@example.com before 9am on Tuesday, June 13th. Alternatively, they can wait until the online system is live and sign up themselves then.
If any lotto players would like to continue to play in the way they have previously done, they are asked to contact Steve Cairns on 07522 286514.
