Wales Lottery Celebrates First Ever Draw

Loteri Cymru, otherwise known as the Wales Lottery, was officially launched on Friday night. With draws taking place every Friday, this new game aims to raise money for worthy causes throughout the country, while offering players the chance to win an impressive £25,000 jackpot.

Wales Lottery Celebrates First Ever Draw

Players of the main loto game select five numbers from a pool of 39 and the more numbers they are able to match, the greater their prize. Rewards range from £10 for matching three balls to £25,000 for correctly predicting all five. You can also win a free ticket for the next draw by matching two balls. The first draw saw the numbers 2, 11, 24, 25 and 38 selected at random.

Players also have an opportunity to win big thanks to the loto+ raffle draw. The supplementary game takes place on the final Friday of each month and sees all ticket holders from the previous month entered into the draw. Ten codes are randomly generated with each winning ticket holder receiving a prize worth £1,000.   

The new lottery’s goal is to raise money for a number of good causes in Wales, with initial grants of £10,000 being made available to support a wide range of grassroots community charities. With 20 percent of all ticket sales being distributed to schemes across the nation, individual grants will rise to £75,000 in time and lottery officials hope to see donations hit the £5 million mark within the first five years.
