How do you know there is a 1 in 15 chance to win a prize?

The MS Society has received independent confirmation from Data Analysis Australia that with 125,000 tickets and 8,350 prizes in total, there is a 1 in 15 chance of winning a prize - assuming all tickets are sold.

Can tickets win multiple prizes?

The only winning tickets that are returned to the draw are the Bonus Prize Winners and the Early Bird Prize Winner. The winning ticket from each of the 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 that the Early Bird Prize and Grand Prize draws will be held at the Grand Prize Show Home at 52 Maldives Drive, Hillarys.

How will the prize draws be supervised?

MSWA's auditors, RSM Bird Cameron Chartered Accountants, will independently verify the completeness and fairness of the draws. Representatives from the Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor will also be present to witness all prize draws, excluding the Bonus Prize Draws.
