How running online lotteries can be made simple and easy... but still supporting the local community for future generations
Cumann Caide na Gaeltachta
Tomás Ó Cruadhlaoich
Last November it was clear that our weekly Lotto 50/50 Draw was running into trouble. Covid19 had closed down most of our selling outlets and it was a matter of urgency to do something about the finances of the club. Going online was our only option!
At the beginning of November, I contacted LottoRaiser and became acquainted with James. I can honestly say that, since our first conversation, I found a person who was helpful, generous with his time and attention, attentive to detail and deeply anxious to make our ‘Lotto-on-Line’ a success. A message to James or an email or a phone call is answered in minutes with courtesy and patience.
James has been very enthusiastic about putting Lotto na Gaeltachta online ‘as Gaeilge’ and his concern for ensuring the detail of the Irish language was, and is, very special and very important to us.
Táimíd fíor bhuíoch le LottoRaiser as an gcabhair agus an tacaíocht! Is mór againn an có-oibriú agus an t-am atá caite ag James linn ag cur ord agus eagar ar LOTTO NA GAELTACHTA ar líne. Molaim é go h-ard!
Buíochas ó chroí agus go méadaí Dia bhur stór!
Le chéile is fearr sinn!

We are very happy with the services offered to us by Lottoraiser.

James is very helpful and any query or question is answered very quickly.
I would highly recommend Lottoraiser to any club or organisation.
Kilbehenny National School
We were lucky enough in Kilbehenny NS to come across Lotto Raiser. As a result of Covid-19 it was not possible for us to finish our schools lotto draw only for the help of James at Lotto Raiser.
James was a pleasure to talk to on the phone, his clear description on how lotto raiser works was excellent. Not only was James clear and concise over the phone James put together a short video to explain how we (the organiser) would see it online and also how our players would carry out buying tickets.
It is so easy to use both for the player and also the users carrying out the lotto and engaging in submitting the lotto results. When we had a query an email to James was replied to within minutes and he was always there to answer our questions.
Lotto Raiser also promotes our lotto on our media platforms. Each player of our Lotto gets an email from Lotto Raiser to remind the player of the draw coming up and also an email that shares the results of the Lotto within minutes after the lotto numbers have been chosen.
Lotto Raiser checks all online tickets for a winner and tickets are made available to print for the lucky dip draw. Lotto Raiser also displays results in hardcopy format where one can simply print the results within the flick of a button and display in shops etc.
We here in Kilbehenny NS are delighted to carry out our Lotto through Lotto Raiser and we can’t praise James highly enough.

Castleisland Desmonds, like all GAA clubs, heavily depended on its lotto to generate funds over the years.

Doonbeg Community Lotto
16th March 2021
When we decided that it was time for Doonbeg Community Lotto to go online I emailed Lottoraiser with a few queries and James gave me a call within an hour. That set the tone for the rest of my dealings with James and Lottoraiser. He was extremely efficient & professional, answered all our questions promptly, gave us good advice and got us set up in a short timeframe. We are pleased with the way Lottoraiser is working for us. James was a pleasure to deal with at all times and I would have no hesitation in recommending other clubs to join Lottoraiser.
Oulart The Ballagh GAA
11th September 2020
As fundraising events for our club, Oulart The Ballagh GAA, in Co Wexford, have all been suspended our local lotto is the only source of income, during the current pandemic.
We decided with the help of Lottoraiser to explore the possibilities of developing our club lotto by going online, as it's the recommended way to go, due to the current circumstances.
We have found James in Lottoraiser extremely professional, courteous and helpful in making the transition to online, in all our dealings and look forward to continuing this partnership in the future.
We as a club organising committee would have no problem recommending Lottoraiser to any clubs looking to go down this route.
Yours in sport
