Likelihood of winning?
We all know that members play out of loyalty and love for the chosen beneficiary and the great work that cause does in the local community. Many beneficiary partners offer additional benefits to members as a thank you for their support, as well as a whole range of none cash prizes. That said it is important we are transparent with the likelihood of winning a cash prize on the NYCDA Weekly Draw. Info below:
- From 14th July 2021, prize fund = 1 in 1,353
- Historic £3,600 prize fund = 1 in 347*
*Figures are calculated by dividing the total membership by the number of prizes available. For members with double memberships this significantly increases the chance of winning.
