SPORTING NEWS. £4,000 320 CASH PRIZES. EIGHTH GRAND HAMBURG ' DRAWING IS NOW OPEN. To a purchaser of 25 programmes.one • will be given gratia. From the undoubted popularity and great success those drawings have obtained throughout New Zealand the promoters are enabled to bring them before the public every two months. There is also the fact that all these Jdrawings have filled some time before the advertised date of closing, which has enabled the Company to pay the prizes in full. The eighth grand drawing for L 4,000 will close the end of April, and the "inth Hamburg drawing will open on the Ist of May. This eighth grand drawing will consist of 320 money prizes, amounting to L 4,000 subscribed by 8,000 members at 10s each. The various Money Prizes will be distributed as follows : 1 £3OO prize; 1 £2OO prize; 1 £IOO prize; 2 £SO prizes; 10 £3O prizes; 15 £25 prizes; 15 £2O prizes; 15 £ls prizes ; 160 £lO prizes ; 100 £5 prizes. Total amount, £4,000; 320 money prizes. To a purchaser of 25 programmes one will be given gratis. The grand principle of these Hamburg Drawings is that a purchaser of 25 programmes is guaranteed a prize, aad the chances are in favor of the investor drawing a large prize, as there are 220 large prizes to 100 small ones. To any investor of £2 the chances are only 6 to 1 against him drawing a prize, and the head prize or any other, may be drawn by an Investor of 10a. Road this carefully.— In Boaz’s Grand Hamburg Drawings the greatest odds are only 25 to 1 against an investor of 10a drawing a prize. But carefully note the enormous odds against investors drawing a hoise or cash prize in any of the j horse consultations. The marbles are replaced for each drawing of the cash prizes, which gives the enormous odds against investors. This Company would simply ask investors to calculate the odds before placing their investments in any horse consultations; and this Company would not presume to tell the public that they have a number of chances and can win a number of prizes for a single investment of 10a. Note.—Prize winners whether winning large or small prizes are informed that their names will not be made public without their written consent. This Bth grand drawing for £4,000 will take place under the super vision of a committee of eight subscribers, and the prizes will be paid over as early as possible after the drawing.
