A LOTTERY with cash prizes to help worthy causes in the North-East has been launched.

Money raised through Geordie Jackpot, which has been set up by NE1, will help fund major projects in Newcastle city centre, as well as supporting the chosen charity, Cash for Kids.

Each week, a guaranteed jackpot of £1,000 will be available with the potential to win £25,000 if players match six numbers in the right order.

Players have to sign up online to take part and, as well as cash, people can win ‘money-can’t buy’ experiences and themed rewards to coincide with NE1 events and activities throughout the year.

Tickets cost £1 each and will be sold online via the Geordie Jackpot website.

Players select six numbers and subscribe to play the Geordie Jackpot for a minimum of four weeks at a time.

Sean Bullick, Chief Executive of NE1 said: “We’re really excited that the Geordie Jackpot is already catching the imagination of the North East community.”
