Club lotteries continue to pay out to supporters whilst raising money for the club

Bolton Wanderers’ successful lotteries continue to lead the way in raising vital funds for the club and recently played an integral part in the construction of the Nat Lofthouse memorial statue.

The Lifeline, Goldline, Golden Gamble and instant win scratchcards all form part of the Bolton Wanderers Development Association (BWDA) and help fund projects and initiatives in all areas of the club.

Each year the BWDA raise in excess of £1.2million, making it one of the most successful of its kind in the country, with over £350,000 paid out in prizes to subscribers of the club’s lotteries.

The BWDA recently donated a significant five-figure sum towards the construction of the statue and its surrounding area, a poignant gesture given Nat’s original role in promoting the Lifeline lottery back in 1982.

Nat would eventually become the face of the club’s Lifeline lottery after a rousing speech on the Burnden Park pitch. The crucial revenue stream that Lifeline generated would help keep the club afloat.

To this day the club’s lotteries pays out over £5,000 on a weekly basis. 

Other recent BWDA-funded projects have recently included the purchasing of new grounds equipment, supporter seating upgrades for the more exposed seats in the lower tiers of the stadium and securing new software to implement the direct debit scheme for season tickets.
