Info on the club Lotto scheme…

lottoOur lotto is going now for the greater part of twenty years.  From very small beginnings, it is now established as one of the prime lottos in the area.  There has been a wide range of Jackpot winners down the years with Kenmare in the Kerry side to Rockchapel on the Cork side amongst the winners.

Our draw is each Friday night in O’Callaghan’s Bar, Gneeveguilla at 11 p.m.  The jackpot starts at €4,000 and rises by €200 each week if not won.  At the moment, our Jackpot on 19/8/2016 is €13,600.

A notable feature of our lotto is that we draw €1,000 bonus prize each week.  This draw is done the same way as the main jackpot draw, with all the tickets having another chance of winning.  Also each week, we hold a lucky dip draw for 2 X €50 and 3 X €40.  One of the €50 lucky dip prizes is drawn between the members of the yearly tickets.There is also a sellers prize on after.

At Christmas each year, we draw for a Monster Hamper on each of the 4 weeks before the holiday.  These hampers are free to our buyers and are much sought after.

If you want to join our yearly ticket or would like just a weekly ticket, contact Tom Joe at 064-7756309 or 0879339087
