You will be entered into the draw when you have monies available and you will continue to be entered into the draw as long as you have monies available against your lottery number.
Why is there a delay between registration and entry into the draw?
Following registration it is necessary to complete a number of administrative processes which include verifying your payment details with your bank, claiming the funds from your bank account and the funds being received.
Why is the price £4.34 per month when paying Direct Debit on a monthly basis?
The monthly cost breakdown of £4.34 for playing the lottery is based on paying £1 per week over a 52 week year. Direct debits for this amount are collected once monthly. Sometimes there will be five weeks in a month and the additional £0.34p is to build up credit to cover the fifth week on the five-week months.
