We have our own lottery! As less people know about this than the Euro millions, there’s a higher chance of winning since fewer people will have bought in! Hosted by the good people at Unity Lottery, there is a decent sized prize to be won
Just because it’s smaller, however, don’t think the prize is minimal – You can win up to £25,000!!
All you have to do is sign up. Part of the money from entries comes directly to us, so every person who signs up is helping Ridgeback Rescue.
The Lottery results are calculated using the temperatures from selected destinations around Europe on a particular day each week.
Players are assigned 6 numbers when registering that are then checked against the last 6 digits of temperatures in Fahrenheit that are published in the Daily Mail on the day of the draw.
So, the specifics:
