How does Win 50-50 Work?
The Win 50-50 is a Lottery held on “Game Day” of a sporting event on a single day. Electronic tickets are sold online or to patrons at the venue by roaming staff equipped with handheld electronic mobile devices. All gross proceeds of Win 50-50 tickets sold at the event go into a prize pool known as the Jackpot. 50% of the Jackpot will go to the winner of the random draw which occurs towards the end of the event. The remaining 50% will be set aside for sporting organisations, clubs initiatives or community projects. Every ticket transaction is electronically recorded and updated on the mobile devices and on the Win 50-50 website, as well as on the various integrated screens at the venue so participants can monitor the lottery Jackpot in real time.
What is the value of the Jackpot?
The winner will receive 50% of the Jackpot which will be paid by either cheque or direct deposit in to your bank account within 14 days of claiming the prize.
