What if I want all 20 tickets to myself?

 It’s great that you want to buy all 20 raffle tickets for yourself! To avoid filling out every single one, simply fill out the first ticket with all your details and then just add your name to every other ticket.

Will I be charged a fee for buying tickets with my credit card?

Paying by a credit card may incur a fee charged by your issuing card provider as the purchase of lottery or raffle tickets is classed as Gambling.

This fee will vary depending on your provider and will probably be described as a cash advance on your statement. However not all providers do make a charge and therefore you should check with your card provider's terms and conditions, or alternatively pay by debit card.
