Playing the lottery

Somerset West Lottery is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in the borough of Taunton Deane or district of West Somerset. All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit Somerset West and Taunton and its residents.

Play the lottery, support Somerset West - it’s that simple!

Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 a week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000! That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery.

Each ticket has six numbers and each number is between 0 and 9. There will be a draw every Saturday night when a six digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2 to 6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all six and you win the jackpot!

Your local good causes

The lottery and its prizes are our way of putting the fun in fundraising. The real winners are the good causes. From every £1 ticket sold 60p will go to good causes in Somerset West and Taunton. To put this in perspective when you play the National Lottery 25% goes to good causes – we’ve more than doubled the ticket percentage that goes to good causes.

Good causes receive 50p from every £1 ticket sold; 10p goes into a community grant fund for which local good causes can apply annually and the remainder goes toward prizes and operating costs.
