Sunderland fan Kevin bought matchday lottery tickets for the first time ahead of the win over Ipswich Town and he too was a winner!
Kevin and his girlfriend Emma bagged £1,000 to help them in the run up to Christmas and cheer up what has been a pretty tough year.
A regular at the Stadium of Light, Kevin admitted he’s never taken part in the lottery before but thought he’d have a go since playing online was an easier option for him.
“I know it’s not a fortune,” Kevin said, “but it really will mean I can relax a bit more about Christmas.
“I never really played the previous half time lottery as it was never very convenient getting into the match in time after a few pints, but I decided to buy tickets for Ha’way and Play as a way to support the Foundation of Light since nobody can attend matches at the minute – and I’m pleased I did!”
Tickets are now on sale ahead of Saturday’s game v Mansfield Town. There’s a minimum prize of £1,000 up for grabs and a runner up prize of £300 worth of Steve Cram Nike running gear.
The jackpot wasn’t won on Tuesday night, so it will rollover, with £5,000 in the pot.
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.
