We will not be able to offer a refund for lottery draws that have already taken place unless a member is found to be under 16.
  14. The Promoter reserves the right to use the winner’s name for promotional purposes. These will be only in summary, for example Mr Smith from London. In addition, The Promotor may also ask to use winners’ stories and/or photographs for publication on the website, or to promote the lottery.
