If you wish to join the club at any other point of the year, a payment of £2 x the number of the months remaining in the club year (e.g. If joining in October, £12 (6 months x £2) is payable by the 15th October)
  4.  A draw will be made on the last Thursday every month with a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize.

  11. The names and numbers for each month’s winners will be posted on the FOBS Facebook page and an email will be sent to the winners requesting their bank account details.

  15. If a winner cannot be contacted, the winnings will be placed into FOBS funds after six months.
  16. If the total monthly prize money is less than £100, due to low ticket sales, no prize will paid out and all prize funds will be rolled over to next month’s draw. This is to minimise the payout of small cash amounts.
