Essex Lottery launches next month – check out our page.

The Essex Lottery will be officially launching next month.

The Essex Lottery has been set up by Essex County Council to support community projects up and down the county, based on the principle of raising money within the community for the community.

60p from every £1 ticket sale will go directly to good causes within communities across Essex – more than double the National Lottery.

There is zero cost to the charities, projects and groups who choose to take part. The County Council itself does not take a penny from the initiative.

Lottery tickets will be available via a new website, which will begin to sell lottery tickets in October, and players will be able to select the cause they wish to support from those registered on the website. View our page here.

The first weekly jackpot prize of £25,000 will be available on 25 November, along with guaranteed weekly prizes.

50p of the £1 ticket price will go direct to the chosen cause, with a further 10p in every pound going to a central Essex Lottery fund, which will be distributed in the form of small grants to a wide range of good cause projects which apply for support.

If a player does not select a charity or good cause, 60p in the £1 will be donated directly to the central Essex Lottery fund.
