There’s a super rollover Jackpot bonus for the Isle of Wight’s Lifeboat Lotto, after the winning numbers for first draw went unclaimed.

The draw was made live on Isle of Wight Radio’s afternoon show, with presenter Emily Wells on Thursday, May 5th.

The winning numbers drawn in the Newport studio were 10, 19, 28 and 29 – but because no-one picked them – next week’s jackpot prize has been boosted to £600.

The next draw will be made on Wednesday May 11th.

Lifeboat Lotto was launched on the island in February  to help raise essential funds for the local independent lifeboats.

The Island Independent Lifeboat Lotto is a welcome fundraising lifeline for the volunteers and a way for donors to enjoy the chance of winning a cash prize of up to £5000.

Island crews based at Ryde, Sandown and Freshwater provide and finance their essential service themselves and that means they need to raise up to £40,000 a year just to meet basic operational running costs.

Island Independent Lotto is easy – and fun. Entry is only £2 a week and there are no weekly entries to fill in, just pick  4 numbers between 1 and 31 and fill them on the application form. 

You only need to do this once as your numbers are then registered in  the Island Independent Lifeboat Lotto computer and are entered into each weekly draw for as long as you pay.
Paying is easy too, no hands in pockets or purses, payment is made by either cheque for £52 which covers 6 months entries or by monthly or quarterly Standing Order. No cash changes hands -Nothing could be easier.

Island Independent Lifeboat Lotto is a local weekly lottery, it is not part of a national scheme, and all funds raised will go to the three Isle of Wight independent lifeboats.
Match 4 numbers and you will win the roll-over jackpot which starts at £500 and increases by £100 a week until a winner is found.  If no one matches the numbers drawn, a winner is guaranteed when the jackpot reaches £5000.  Match 3 numbers and win a £20 consolation prize.
There is no need to claim, all winners will be paid directly and winning numbers will be published each week on our website.

Note to editors
Lifeboat Lotto has been set up by a team of people with over 35 years experience in  fundraising by means of small lotteries in the sports and charity sector.
We take all the hard work out of running a Lottery for a good cause.  We can sort out all aspects of a lottery, from the legal requirements through marketing and administration. We start by having a belief and interest  in the  wonderful service that all connected with Lifeboats perform.

We aim to take some of the pressure off a Lifeboats constant need to fundraise and allow them to get on with the job of saving lives not worrying about how they are going to keep the boat afloat.
