The concept of a raffle is both beautifully simple and impossible to misunderstand – people buy tickets for the chance to win a prize.
It’s a game that has stood the test of time with its usage documented in many of the world’s oldest civilizations. It had also proven to be an immensely effective fundraiser across the ages; the ancient Greeks used raffles to fund community projects, and the Han Dynasty used a similar game to fund the construction of the Great Wall of China. Taking the model of the age-old raffle and repurposing it to accommodate the modern age, two young and promising entrepreneurs in the UK have reinvigorated what it means to win online with Raffolux.
Founded by Gerry Lianos and Harry Hammond in 2019, Raffolux is an online raffling platform where users can enter and play with ease for a chance to win a number of luxurious prizes, such as a brand new car, a stay at a luxury resort, or a lifechanging sum of money. The best part? Every time a player enters one of these mouth-watering raffles, a donation is made to a charity of their choice. To make this possible, the company has formed partnerships with a host of fantastic charities in the UK, such as Women’s Aid, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Oxfam, Worldwide Cancer Research, the Alzheimer’s Society, and many more.
“Raffles are something that just about everyone understands, and with Raffolux, we wanted to bring such a well-loved game online for the first time,” CEO and co-founder Gerry Lianos says. “We offer really good odds on all our raffles, and our players know that win or lose, they’ll have donated to a charity of their choice just by playing.”
“We have such an exciting roadmap ahead, and the whole team is working towards a very clear mission of becoming the first mass-market raffle platform in the UK and beyond. We believe we offer a fresh take on the market, and I’m thrilled to see that so many people have signed up to join the fun.”
Despite their ancient history, raffles have proven to stand the test of time. And now, thanks to Raffolux, raffles can be played whenever it takes your fancy online – not just to offer users the chance to win some life-changing prizes, but to offer good causes and charities some life-changing donations.
