Tickets will cost £1 with 60p going towards local good causes, compared to just 28p in the pound for the National Lottery. Eastbourne is among the first few local authorities to launch its own online lottery.
There are two parts to the Eastbourne Local Lottery scheme. Local good causes will be able to set up their own lottery page online and will receive 50p in every pound spent by players using this method. A further 10p in every pound will go into a general Eastbourne good causes fund, with the remainder being put towards prizes, operating costs and VAT.
