CAN TICKETS WIN MULTIPLE PRIZES?

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.

It is likely that the Early Bird Prize and Grand Prize draws will be held at the Grand Prize Show Home at 17 Seychelles Lane, Hillarys. The remaining prize draws, including the Bonus Prize will be conducted at the MS Society’s office at Level 2, 1133 Albany Highway, Bentley.

HOW WILL THE PRIZE DRAWS BE SUPERVISED?

The MS Society’s auditors, RSM Bird Cameron Chartered Accountants will independently verify the completeness of tokens and fairness of draws. Representatives from the Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor will also be present to witness the prize draws.

HOW WILL I KNOW IF I HAVE WON A PRIZE IN THE MS MEGA HOME LOTTERY?

All winners will be notified in writing, shortly after the prize draws have been completed.

Winners of the Bonus Prize and Early Bird Prize will be published at www.mslottery.com.au at 6pm on the day of the draw.

Funds raised from this MS Mega Home Lottery will be used to build a new MS Outreach Centre in Bunbury. In addition to these initiatives, the level of professional healthcare services provided to Western Australians living with MS will be substantially increased.

MSWA also provides the highest level of funding towards MS research in Australia and last year contributed a record $1.25 million towards research.
