The amount of money from the lottery which goes to donkeys is so far based on projections only. Since our lottery is new, we cannot give exact figures. We have used our projections to give the most accurate estimates we can at this stage.
Our projections are as follows: we are aiming for 8,800 players, and if we achieve this 8% of the money will go on administration costs, 17% on prizes, leaving 75% for donkeys. We aim to achieve this within 3 months of launching, but remember: these percentages are based on projections only. After 3 months of running the lottery we’ll know precisely how many players we have had and so how much money from every £1 played has gone to donkeys.
The amount which goes to donkeys will depend on how many people play our lottery. The more people who play, the more will go to donkeys, so we’ll hope you’ll join in.
