Tickets for the Channel Islands ‘Millionaire’ 2012 Summer Draw go on sale across Jersey on Friday 29 June. The winning numbers will be announced by Mr Battle, Matthew Wolfenden, at the Jersey Battle of Flowers on 9 August 2012.
Tickets are expected to sell fast as, if all tickets are sold, the first prize will be £1 million. This would be the highest lottery prize in the history of the Channel Islands Lottery. As well as the first prize, there will be a second prize of £100,000, 10 third prizes of £10,000, and 20 fourth prizes of £5,000.
Tickets cost £2 with two entries into the prize draw. This means that, if all tickets are sold, each ticket has a one in a million chance of winning £1 million. Tickets will be available at participating retailers, as well as at Trading Standards in the Central Market and the lottery kiosk on King Street.
Economic Development Minister, Senator Alan Maclean, said “With all Jersey profits going directly to local good causes, the summer draw is not only an exciting event but also an opportunity for Islanders to contribute to the valuable work of Jersey charities.”
Chair of the Association of Jersey Charities, Liz Le Poidevin, added “The Association of Jersey Charities has been lucky enough to receive the Jersey share of the Channel Islands lottery profits for many years now and we could not continue our work of helping our member charities without it.”
