Degree 53, a digital agency catered towards the gaming industry, has announced the launch of its Virtual Grand National sweepstake generator.
The sweepstake generator is aimed towards the UK’s remote workers, allowing those working from home to remotely draw an office sweepstake for the event.
This week, it was announced Betting and Gaming Council members would donate all profit from Saturday’s Virtual Grand National to the NHS Charities Group.
Andrew Daniels, Managing Director at Degree 35, hopes the sweepstake generator will help to increase the funds donated towards the NHS.
He said: “The Grand National is a part of our great nation’s DNA. It’s fantastic that the Virtual Grand National will be running on Saturday.
“Not only will it boost everyone’s morale, but it will also raise funds for our NHS Heroes. The office sweepstake is equally part and parcel of the event, and we wanted to make sure that this could continue, which is why we are happy to bring it to the public.
“While offices are now all working from home, things like this can easily be done remotely and it’s something that can bring people together during these difficult times.”
