How do you know there is a 1 in 25 chance to win a prize?

The MS Society has received independent confirmation from Data Analysis Australia that with 70,000 tickets and 2,802 prizes in total, there is a 1 in 25 chance of winning a prize - assuming all tickets are sold. If the MS Mega Home Lottery does not sell all 70,000 tickets then your odds of winning a prize improve.

Note: Each ticket purchased before the Bonus Draw ticket sale close is eligible for the Bonus Prize Draw, The Early Bird Prize Draw and the remaining 2,800 prizes. Each ticket purchased before Early Bird ticket sales close is eligible for the Early Bird Prize draw and to win one of the other 2,800 prize draws. Tickets purchased after Early Bird ticket sales close are eligible to win one of the other 2,800 prizes on offer.

How much is the total prize package worth?

All 2,802 prizes have combined retail value of $2,766,901.

CAN TICKETS WIN MULTIPLE PRIZES?

In past MS Mega Home Lotteries, winning tickets were returned to the barrel and eligible to win multiple prizes. In 2013 the only winning tickets that are returned to the barrel are the Bonus Prize Winner and the Early Bird Prize Winner. The winning ticket from each subsequent draw is excluded from all further prize draws. We believe that this provides greater fairness and allows more people to win prizes in the lottery. This approach is approved by the Department of Racing Gaming and Liquor.

WHERE WILL THE PRIZE DRAWS TAKE PLACE?

It is likely the Bonus Prize draw, Early Bird and Grand Prize draws will be held at the Grand Prize Show Home at 7 Amalfi Drive, Hillary’s. The remaining prize draws will be conducted at the MS Society’s office at Level 2, 1133 Albany Highway, Bentley.
