Help with information about the Lottery


Recommended Posts

Well, we've had 2 winners already, 1 accidentally(we set it up wrong someone with 3 balls "won" but we honoured it), and one outright Jackpot winner last month who won £1,200, so that's 1 in 20 at the moment..!

The actual odds are 35,690 to 1.

This compares very favourably to Lotto jackpot at nearly 50 million to 1, and the Euromillions at getting towards 150 million to 1   !!

 

We are not claiming that the Lottery alone will be sufficient ( much more to come) but we have quite a way to go before 3,000 are playing every week. As Andy has said though, if 1,000 had played every week since Abdallah appeared then we'd have a tidy sum and more clout.

 

And the main reason for the lottery is to raise money with some fun and low stake. The ability to just chuck money into the Contingency fund is coming soon.


PS Oh, and cheesrs Glossop for the reminder to post the link!!

That's an interesting idea.

 

I've signed up for a year, and any win would be a bonus, not expecting it (especially with my record on the gee-gees 😂) but it would be good to know what's needed to win, I can't remember and can't find it anywhere!

Hi, can I  check do you mean the odds? Or something else? cheers

Not a big prize. What's the odds of winning? Am I better putting a quid on a 16 fold?

 

What impact would the money have if worst came to worst? Pay 2 weeks of Hallam Hope's wage?

 

 

I tihnk the 16 fold is roughly 200,00 to 1, so the Lottery odds are much better.

Of course, as it stands today we're not going to rescue the club, but it's the start and other projects on stream. But if people don't join they we definitely cannot even afford a YTS lad for an hour.

Sorry, I should have been clearer. It's no doubt a stupid question but presumably you need all 4 numbers to come up to win?

That's right.

Not dumb at all.

We do a lucky dip from all the lines entered also.

Lotteries are vey odd things.  The National Lottery advertises itself by saying how much t hey raise for good causes but of course that amount would be much greater if people just donated their stake money.  

Sorry Dave, I missed replying to this. Basically the new website will have the facility for one off and regular donations straight into the Contingency Fund. Looks like being ready in a couple of weeks.

Good point, I'll post it around various places on the site. 

Hi @Matt  Would it be possible to pin the How to raise money for the Contingency Fund - 1) Lottery  in place of the PLayershare pinned past as PLayershare takes a back seat in the current Crisies. I'll edit out the 1) Lottery bit once the new website and other projects are announced. Ta.

Done.

Can I ask your help?

I  am trying to look at why people are not signing up to the Lottery, following us on twitter, and therefore work out ways to overcome it.

I'd imagine several reasons for not joing would be being able to afford the cost, albeit it is £1 per week, not agreeing with any form of gambling - it should be noted the lotteries do not fall under the categories for addictive gambling due to low stake, and uncertainty where the money is going -more of that in the next few weeks but basically it is to be a contingency or obtain majority shareholding.

Are there any other reasons?

Cheers

You know my views on this as previously set out.

 

Raising funds to secure a proper stake in our club should be the trust’s number one priority.

 

It is a primary reason for being.

 

That doesn’t come across in the trust’s communications.

 

As an idea and objective it is lost amongst the crowd of other ideas and objectives.
 

Less is more.

 

I believe that until the trust clearly articulates this a priority and structures it’s activities and comms around this then it won’t get very far in raising funds.

 

I am not about to put money into a ‘just in case’ fund- well not more than loose change. It doesn’t engage me, it doesn’t get me excited, it doesn’t incentivise me. 

 

I would put money into a proactive effort to secure a meaningful stake in the club which is tied to a clear vision for what we want the future club to look like. 
 

thanks

I really really encourage you to move away from the idea of this being a contingency fund. 


Where is the trust’s position on actively trying to secure fan ownership? With no clear plan and vision for how people’s hard earned money will be used to deliver the future for OAFC we all want, then we won’t raise much at all.
 

I set out a lengthy plea for the trust to consider this via email about 3 months ago. Nil response.

I agree.  I wouldn't renew for the lottery when the time comes without something on these lines.  I'd rathe give £1 a week with no return but that only works if lots do
