West Berkshire Lottery has announced that all tickets purchased for its weekly lottery up until Saturday, 19 December will be entered into a national draw for the chance of winning one of five Entertainment Bundles. 

Each Entertainment Bundle contains an Amazon Echo Show 8, Echo Dot 3rd Gen and a Fire 7 Tablet. The Entertainment Bundle national draw is on 19 December, with results to be announced at 8pm on the lottery website.

Residents are invited to sign up to support the local community for just £1 per ticket for the West Berkshire Lottery. The weekly winnings range from free tickets to the top prize of £25,000.  A draw takes place every Saturday and a 6 digit winning combination will be picked.

Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2-6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all 6 and the ticket holder wins the £25,000 jackpot. Winners are notified by email.

Out of every £1 West Berkshire lottery ticket purchased, 50p goes directly to the lottery player's chosen charity and 10p goes into the Council's good cause fund used to further support the local community.

Councillor Ross Mackinnon, Executive member for Finance and Economic Development at West Berkshire Council, said:

"Thanks to our residents, West Berkshire Lottery has raised more than £98,000 for local charities since launching in March 2019. There are now 125 local causes which lottery players can choose to support, including PTAs, sports clubs, community associations, animal welfare, and many more.

"This support has been particularly valued by local charities raising funds during the pandemic. Just 20 tickets sold secures annual funds (paid monthly) of over £500 and many are raising almost £2,000 this year.

"I encourage local not-for-profit organisations or groups who would like to sign up to raise funds for free through the West Berkshire Lottery to please visit https://www.westberkshirelottery.co.uk for further information and to register."
