The top prize in this year's Channel Islands Christmas Lottery will reach £805,000 if all tickets are sold.
The 2021 Christmas Lottery was launched yesterday and most of the changes introduced last year remain, including a price of £2 per ticket.
Proceeds from the lottery will be distributed to local charities and causes throughout the Channel Islands by the Social Investment Fund and millions of pounds have been raised over recent years.
The top prize is guaranteed at £300,000 but will rise as tickets are sold, with the potential of reaching £805,000 if all 1.2 million tickets are sold.
The second prize amounts to £50,000 and there are 55 other prize draw prizes ranging from £10,000 to £500.
Senior Lottery Official, Jon Taylor, said: “Christmas seems to resonate most with islanders and that’s probably because there is a chance to win a life changing amount of money with this game.”
The last four first prize winners have all been Guernsey tickets and there is hope for the same again.
“We are proud to be able to distribute the Christmas game to our reseller network and it would be fantastic if we can keep the momentum going and have another Guernsey ticket winning the first prize,” said the Head of Lottery at Guernsey Post, Ciara Devlin.
“The most important thing to remember though is the funds raised go to so many worthy causes throughout the Bailiwick and we ask all players to play responsibly.”
Tickets for the 2021 Christmas Lottery draw are available for purchase now throughout the Channel Islands, and the draw will take place in Jersey this year, live on ITV Channel News on Thursday 23 December from 18:00.
