The draw takes place every week and there can be 4 or 5 draws per month depending on where the dates fall within a calendar month. If you do not have enough credit at the time of a draw, your number will not be entered.
To help prevent you missing out on any draws in a 5 week month we take an extra £0.34 each month. This extra 34p is built up to a full £1 to cover instances when there are 5 draws in a month.
Paying by credit card may incur a fee charged by your issuing card provider as the purchase of lottery or raffle tickets is classed as gambling.
This fee will vary depending on your provider and will probably be described as a cash advance on your statement. However not all providers do make a charge and therefore you should check with your card provider's terms and conditions, or alternatively pay by debit card.
