Have you got your tickets yet?
Each Lincs Lotto player has a one in 50 chance of winning a prize with a jackpot up for grabs of a whopping £25,000. For the first draw, one lucky ticket-holder will also win an iPad!
Lincs Lotto tickets cost just £1 each and 60 pence from every ticket sold goes directly to helping good causes across North Lincolnshire.
Lincs Lotto players can choose which good local cause they want to support when they purchase their tickets and 50 pence from every ticket bought will go directly to their chosen cause. A further 10 pence from each ticket sold supports good causes through the council’s Community Grant Fund.
The remaining 40 pence from each ticket sold is split between the running costs of the lottery, the prize fund and VAT.
With the first draw now just days away, don’t forget to buy your tickets to be in with a chance of winning.

Cllr Carl Sherwood (Brigg & Wolds), Cabinet Member for Community Wellbeing, said: We launched Lincs Lotto to provide a unique way of supporting local good causes and it has the added bonus of giving our residents a fantastic opportunity to win real cash prizes! Over 1,400 tickets have already been sold, meaning a cash injection of over £45,000 per year for local groups.
“We have had nearly 100 good causes apply to benefit from Lincs Lotto, including charities, community groups and sports clubs. If you are a good cause in North Lincolnshire and want to get involved, visit our website to find out how to apply.”
In accordance with the Gambling Act 2005, North Lincolnshire Council has appointed an external lottery manager, Gatherwell Ltd, who run Lincs Lotto on our behalf.
