Location Lotto had its first winner just last week when Limerick woman Lisa Cremins O’Driscoll’s ticket was drawn. Lisa scooped €500 cash for herself, which Location Lotto then matched. The matching amount of €500 went to Limerick Marine Search and Rescue, a charity close to Lisa’s heart.


How it works:

Location Lotto is simple. Log on to and enter your location details including  your new, unique “Eircode” postal code which each and every home in the country has been assigned. With Location Lotto your location is your ticket. You will be provided with specific ticket number when you have signed up which is unique to you as a player and you’re ready to play. Each Thursday, you will be entered into a draw which costs just €2 for the weekly chance of winning from €250 to €20,000. With Location Lotto you’re not relying on the huge odds of a series of numbers appearing, you just need one number to win. Your location is your ticket! With Location Lotto you also have the added bonus of not worrying about buying tickets each week, you pay €8 plus per month for four tickets in advance, you can also play up to three tickets per week.

And here’s the important part! As well as winning up to €20,000, Location Lotto will contribute 100% of whatever amount you win to a local or national charity of your choice. For example, if you win €1,000, Location Lotto will award such charitable organisations as Stop Suicide or the Irish Cancer Society with €1,000, separate from your winnings. You can also nominate a charity you would like to see benefit close to your heart within your community or nationwide. Playing Location Lotto means everybody wins.


Both living and working in the north west, both Barry and David have experienced the loss of a close family member. Barry, who works as a Digital Marketing Executive in Sligo Town lost his father to cancer eighteen months ago while David, who works as a graphic designer in Carrick-on-Shannon, was bereaved by the loss of his brother to suicide ten years ago.

Both men are keen to give something back to organisations such as Stop Suicide, for the prevention of self-harm or suicide and the Irish Cancer Society who aim to improve the lives of those affected by cancer and their loved ones. They are also eager to add any other vital charities which players of Location Lotto feel should benefit from the prize fund.

“We both just wanted a develop a way to give back to the organisations that helped us and countless others who felt pain and loss through the suffering of loved ones”, says Barry. “With Location Lotto, there’s no multi-national companies or directors involved, it’s just two Roscommon lads who want a clear and transparent way of rewarding the general public for rewarding charities.”

David continues: ” With Location Lotto, people purchase a ticket for just €2 a week and they’re in with a genuine opportunity to win cash for both themselves and their chosen charity.”
