Many other lotteries have great prizes, but they don’t give you the freedom of choice that the Deaf Lottery offers. Some people don’t actually need a new car, and others would rather take a luxury holiday than stare at the new motorhome parked in their driveway. With the Deaf Lottery, you get to choose the prize package that best suits your lifestyle – and the one you always wanted.
At first glance, the various options can be a little overwhelming. It’s easier to follow if you keep in mind that all 4 options for the First prize are based on the same formula. Each one gives you $20,000 in cash. Each one also gives you about $700,000 worth of gold bullion. You get to pick the third part of the package – a car, a motor home, a house, or a bundle of prizes. You decide how much you want to spend on these items, over and above a set minimum, and the remainder is paid out in gold bullion.
Trying to choose which dream to follow is a lovely problem to have.

The First Prize winner gets to choose their “Dream Lifestyle”. It can be a tough call when you’re looking at vehicles, property, marine craft, gift cards and gold bullion. There are also 154 other prizes to be won, including five early bird prizes of MasterCard Debit Cards.
Here are the First Prize options:
OPTION ONE: MORTGAGE BUSTER
First off, you get $20,000 in cash. A bit of mad money to get things rolling. Next, you’re going to have to choose a new car. That’s not much of a hardship when the only rule is that you have to spend at least $30,000. Get the Jag you always fantasized about, or take the sensible option and drive the kids around in a new, fully-loaded minivan. Whatever you settle on, you’ll have the money to pay in cash and then get the balance of $750,000 paid out to you in gold bullion. That’s enough to get yourself free of the mortgage, for a total package value of $800,000.
OPTION TWO: HIT THE ROAD
If you’ve always fancied yourself as the outdoorsy type, here’s your chance to do it in style. You’ll get to pick out a motorhome, or a brand-new caravan with a 4WD to haul it around the country. You’ll be able to afford all the gear to go inside as well, because the package includes $20,000 in spending money. Your price range for the motorhome starts at $100,000. Whatever you don’t spend gets given out to you in gold bullion. Now that’s $800,000 worth of freedom you want to start dreaming about.
OPTION THREE: BUILD YOUR FANTASY HOME
Maybe you’ve always wanted to build a house on that bit of land you’ve got tucked away somewhere, or you’ve secretly wished you had the funds to invest in a second house. With this option, you can do either. You’ll get $100,000 placed on deposit with Metricon, who’ll build your new home either on your own piece of land, or one they’ll provide along with the builders. You can use the $20,000 cash included in the package for everything from new curtains to garden gnomes. You can also use as much or as little of an extra $700,000 in gold bullion to supplement the building costs. Total value of the package: $800,000.
OPTION FOUR: DESIGN YOUR OWN LIFESTYLE
If you already have a home, don’t feel like moving, and love your car, this package is a lucky-dip of other prize options. You’ll have a minimum of $100,000 to spend on things like motor vehicles, motor homes, trucks, marine craft, caravans, campers, motor bikes, farm machinery and gift cards. It’s basically the ultimate spending spree. You’ll also get another $20,000 to spend any way you want, or tuck away for a rainy day. Finally, there’s $700,000 in gold bullion. Your hardest job is going to be deciding what to pick in this $800,000 parcel of prizes.
If You Don’t Win the Top Prize, Don’t Despair. There are 154 More to Come.
Naturally, everyone wants to win the First Prize. What’s great about the Deaf Lottery is that there are so many others to watch for as well.
