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!

Ballymote Community Lotto Team
As a result of covid 19 Ballymote Community Lotto decided to go online .We are delighted that we decided to use the Lottoraiser system. From Day 1 James at Lottoraiser was very helpful, nothing was too much trouble .He had a system in place which he was able and willing to adapt to our particular needs.
The key to Lottoraiser is that it is very simple for your supporters to play and from the clubs/ organisations point of view it is very simple to administer.
It integrates with our social media platforms allowing us to post results and promotional posters.Players get sent a copy of their tickets with thanks for the draw and a reminder for upcoming draws.We have got very good feedback from our supporters and being online has helped us reach many new players.
Any queries are dealt with very quickly and the team at Ballymote Community Lotto would have no hesitation in recommending Lottoraiser for any club thinking of going online for their fundraising projects.
We at Roscommon Gaels just like a lot of GAA Clubs had to shut down our Club Lotto when the Covid pandemic arrived. We made the decision to go online late last year as we realised our normal selling outlets was not an option for the foreseeable future. We chose Lottoraiser after assessing a number of solutions, as it was the most user-friendly and was the best fit four our customer needs. It was a decision our executive are proud of.

The lotto team @ Murrisk Development Association
The agility, speed and professionalism demonstrated by James at Lottoraiser in supporting the Murrisk Development Association Ltd transition to online lotto sales is indicative of his competency in this space. We were able to transition seamlessly and quickly to this platform whilst being able to continue generating our income without disruption. The platform is very easy and intuitive to use, we’ve continued a steady stream of revenue over the past number of months, and we have been able to maintain a channel of communication with old and new lotto players alike located across the globe. James is a wonderful support and we would highly recommend his services to any club or society.
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.

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
Swinford Community Lotto
I am the manager of Swinford Community Lotto, director of Swinford Amenity Park., The primary aim of the Community Lotto is to fund the maintenance, development of the Swinford. Amenity Park . Prior to Covid-19 the committee commenced looking for an on line partner. We looked at all the alternatives and talked to the suppliers. James put in a huge effort to bring us on board. The online experience with lottoraiser mirrors our local system down to a tee, the tickets are pink and a copy or our ticket. The lottoraiser fee is simple and straightforward and we know where we are from the start. Swinford Community Lotto would recommend lottoraiser as a partner for any group. Totally professional and helpful, always at the end of the phone to help.

Liam Ó Braonain
I would highly recommend LottoRaiser to any club or organisation wishing to sell their club lotto online.
Very easily set and great service provided with great support/backup for help along the way.

Kilkerrin/Clonberne Ladies Football Club
Lottoraiser has become an important part in Kilkerrin/Clonberne Ladies fundraising efforts. It allows our members both near & far to support the club lotto on a regular basis and is a great addition in how we communicate to members. Initial set up was very easy and James & the team are extremely helpful and are always on hand to quickly deal with any requests. We would strongly recommend Lottoraiser to any other clubs or organisations considering their online options.
Would have to say that Lottoraiser has been a life Saver particularly over the COVID-19 pandemic, our main source of income was our fortnightly lotto that could only be carried out by selling the tickets in the pubs, from our initial enquiry we knew this was the way forward, and from the outset, James could not have been more informative and helpful and whenever there was a query it was dealt with and answered very quickly this is a wonderful opportunity to get to our people that would not be in the pubs, I would highly recommend

Tinryland GFC (Carlow) have been using the Lottoraiser service since July 2019. From an administrative perspective, the software is very intuitive and easy to use. Lottoraiser is very flexible meaning we were able to mould it to fit our own club's specific needs. The technical support is fast and effective.
From a user perspective, the interface is simple and allows our members to play the lotto with only a few taps on their phone. One of the biggest attractions for the club and for users is the possibility to buy a 'rolling ticket' meaning users can sign up once and ensure that their ticket is entered every week with no additional effort.
Lottoraiser plugs in seamlessly to our Twitter and Facebook pages and once the work is done on the initial set up takes very little maintenance. Almost a year in now and we're very happy with the service.
Looking to extend our fundraising options and to reach out to our many members now living around the world we decided to opt for an online lotto. This would give us a great opportunity to reach all our distant supporters.
Having looked at many options and spoke with different online companies we were very impressed with James and Lottoraiser. Here we had a system ready to go. James and his team are very helpful and we are very happy with how it's all working out. Everything is organised, free set up, free posters, customised posters for Christmas, Halloween, St Patrick's Day etc.
Once draw is completed all participants are automatically notified and all members are reminded weekly of upcoming draw. Very easy for our club to run and gives all our friends outside our community the opportunity to continue supporting our club Manulla FC.
We highly recommend Lottoraiser, James and his staff as an online fundraising option.

After considering many alternatives, Lottoraiser is by far the best solution out there for a GAA club like ours.

The ease of integration with our social media platforms allows for automatic weekly posting of results and promotion posters with little or no admin time. From day one, James was a pleasure to deal with and responds very quickly to any queries. Lottoraiser is really a no brainer for any club considering moving their lotto online. With no set up fee, the payback is instant. We just wish we did it sooner! Best of luck James and thanks for everything.

We depend on voluntary fundraising to a great extent and we needed to raise our profile to generate more revenue for our cause. You created Lottoraiser to do just that for us and we couldn't have been more pleased with the result of your work. Your Lottoraiser is continuing to raise much needed funds for our charity and we look forward to this continuing to increase even more over time.
I wish you well in the future with Lottoraiser and know it will be of great benefit to any group who need to raise revenue to continue their work.
