Frequently Asked Questions
How do I enter the lottery?
To enter Pride in Penrith Lottery’s weekly draws, you join as a member and pay a subscription of £2 a week.
You can join here on our website by filling in the online form, or download a form to fill in and post back to us. You can also pick up a membership form from Maggie’s Bakery on Sandgate in Penrith or at Robinson Udale on King Street.
How do I pay?
You can pay monthly, quarterly or annually by Standing Order or Credit or Debit Card. We also accept cheque payments. The easiest way to pay is by setting up a Standing Order through your online banking.
Can I cancel my membership?
You can cancel your membership at any time. If you pay by standing order, you'll need to notify your bank to stop the payments. If you have a credit balance in the Pride in Penrith Lottery account, it will be refunded if you notify us in writing. However, we hope that you’ll stay with us and continue to support your local lottery.
Can I pick my own numbers?
Yes. Pick four numbers between 1 and 31 and enter them on the application form. If you'd prefer us to pick your numbers for you, on the application form, tick to select Lucky Dip facility and the computer will select four random numbers for you if you do not want to pick your own.
How do I know if my numbers have been entered correctly?
When you sign up to join the lottery, your personal details are entered on our specialist software provided by Tower Lotteries. This also includes the numbers that you have chosen, or that you've been issued with if you opt for a Lucky Dip. You will receive a confirmation letter by post showing your numbers that have been entered into the computer. You can then check that they are the correct ones.
What if someone else picks the same numbers as me?
If you match all four numbers the jackpot prize would be shared, like the National Lottery. If you match three numbers, you’ll receive the full prize of £20.
How will I know if I have won?
The winning numbers in each week’s draw will be published on our website and on our facebook and twitter feeds, so please follow us!. You don't need to check your numbers, because we'll send you any £20 winnings in the post. If you are lucky enough to win the jackpot, again, we'll be in touch to arrange to present your cheque to you. Just remember to let us know if you move house!
