Black Cats fan, David was our first cash winner of our new Ha’way and Play lottery, when the lads took on Portsmouth at home on Saturday.
David from County Durham won £1,000 and regularly purchased a lottery ticket at the Stadium of Light when it was Grand in Your Hand.
“I was shocked when I heard I won” said David.
“I used to regularly purchase a lottery ticket, but sadly never won. When I heard it was moving online, I thought I would play along and show my support (to the charity) at the same time.”
It was quick and easy to purchase tickets
The jackpot wasn’t won on Saturday and will roll over to Ipswich on 3rd November, with £5,000 up for grabs.
The Ha’way and Play lottery offers more ways to play, more prizes to win and it’s a great way to support the football club’s official charity.
The revamped matchday lottery comes following fan feedback, where we asked supporters their thoughts and how they would like it to work.
