1. What is a RAFFLE?
RAFFLE is a game in which participants obtain numbered tickets, each ticket having the chance of winning a prize. On 30 December 2017, at 21:00, the winning ticket numbers will be drawn using a Random Number Generator (RNG) which contains all the ticket entries. The RNG system draws the winning numbers randomly from the pool of RAFFLE ticket numbers sold. The drawn tickets are checked against a collection of prizes which are assigned to specific winning divisions, and the holder of the selected ticket wins the prize in the drawn division.
