How do you know there is a 1 in 15 chance to win a prize?

The MS Society has received independent confirmation from Data Analysis Australia that with 50,000 tickets and 3,351 prizes in total, there is a 1 in 15 chance of winning a prize – assuming all tickets are sold. If the MS Game Changer Lottery does not sell all 50,000 tickets, then your odds of winning a prize improve.

Every ticket purchased before the Early Bird ticket sales close is eligible to win the Early Bird Prize, and one of the remaining 3,335 prizes (including the Grand Prize). Tickets purchased after Early Bird ticket sales close are eligible to win one of the remaining 3,335 prizes (including the Grand Prize).

How much is the total prize pool worth?

All 3,351 prizes have a combined retail value of $2,528,759.
