2. All subscriptions received at a minimum of £2 per week payable in advance will be entered into the weekly draw using the unique draw number. The draw will be made utilising a Random Number Generator (RNG) that has been tested and approved by an independent, Gambling Commission approved, third party test house. The draw will normally take place each Friday. Monthly subscriptions by direct debit of £8.68 include 68p which accumulates and funds the 13th week, which occurs every three months.

3. Please be advised that we are required by our licence to inform customers about what happens to their funds which we hold on account for you in the event of insolvency. 

We hold all customer funds separate from company funds in a UK bank account, but they would form part of the assets of the business in the event of insolvency.  These funds are therefore not protected in the event of insolvency and are classed as “not protected segregation”.
