Purchasers will receive a special raffle ticket from the terminal that will detail the raffle book number and the relevant draw date for that raffle book."
Prizes for each book for the Go for Gold raffle will be drawn on the Wednesday following the close of sale for each week. The prize draw each week will see the award of Gold, Silver, Bronze and subsidiary prizes.
All Jamaicans are encouraged to purchase their tickets early. Tickets are limited. All Jamaicans should play their part in supporting Jamaica's team to the London 2012 Olympic Games.
