How is Veterans Raffle different to a lottery?
The Veterans Raffle uses a computer software version of a traditional raffle where your name is drawn from a hat. Lotteries operate by using a number sequence and for those with a disposition to addictive behaviours, this could be the gateway to riskier forms of gambling.
The Veterans Raffle do not operate a rollover which means guaranteed prize winners every month.
