Air Ambulance Promotions Limited Lottery Terms and Conditions

Updated September 2023

Governance

1. Air Ambulance Charity Kent Surrey Sussex (KSS) wholly owns a trading subsidiary, Air Ambulance Promotions Limited (AAPL) which promotes society lotteries to raise funds that helps support KSS’ purpose of saving lives and ensuring the best possible patient outcomes (the “Promoter”).

2. AAPL operates and promotes our society lotteries and is licensed and regulated in Great Britain by the Gambling Commission (gamblingcommission.gov.uk).

3. AAPL is a registered Company (No 2674568), registered office address Air Ambulance Building, Rochester City Airport, Maidstone Road, Chatham, Kent ME5 9SD. Responsible persons: Symon Russell, James Cook, David Mantz.

4. Your purchase of lottery entries is from AAPL as the promoter. By entering one of our lotteries, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions, the Gambling Act 2005 and any relevant regulations made thereunder from time to time. Any participation instructions form part of these terms and conditions.

Our Draws

5. We operate three draws; the Regular Lottery, the Superdraw (jackpot draw) and the 24/7 Club Lottery.

6. The 24/7 Club Lottery and Superdraw are additional draws to the Regular Lottery and only available for entry to paying members of the Regular Lottery.

7. Each of the draws will take place every week on a Wednesday. If the draw cannot be performed on a Wednesday due to public holidays or unforeseen circumstances, then the draw will be performed on the next available working day.

8. Each draw is conducted using the Donorflex Lottery Random Number Generator (RNG) which is fully licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission and has been independently tested, using a variety of industry-standard statistical tests to produce truly random numbers.

9. Winners will be announced within three working days on the KSS website (aakss.org.uk.uk/lotteryresults). The Superdraw is a jackpot rollover draw with a maximum prize value of £25K, and the winners will be announced on the website as and when this occurs. The prize may not be claimed by a third party on your behalf.

10. A maximum of three consecutive draws may take place retrospectively at the discretion of the AAPL Board of Directors.

11. The maximum number of chances permitted for each of these draws, for any individual, is 10 per week per draw. When you sign up via one of our face-to-face fundraisers, the maximum number of chances permitted is two. Should you wish to increase this, please contact our registered office.

12. A society lottery is a fun way to donate money to a great cause with having the added bonus of the chance to win a cash prize. All proceeds, after the deduction of legal prizes and expenses, shall be donated to KSS. We want to ensure you feel empowered to make informed choices about joining our lotteries.
