Somerset West lottery
The Somerset West Lottery is a local lottery run by Somerset West and Taunton Council.
The lottery offers good causes registered with the lottery the opportunity to raise income for their organisation by selling tickets to members of the public. Good causes receive 50p from every £1 ticket sold; 10p goes into a community grant fund for which local good causes can apply annually and the remainder goes toward prizes and operating costs. Draws are made weekly.
The jackpot prize is £25,000.00 for a matching sequence of six numbers, other prizes include £2,000.00, £250.00, £25.00 or three free lottery tickets. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance of winning.
