The Rhode GAA Lotto is the main source of income the club has and now you can play online through our website. The good news is when you play the lotto online you are entitled to free draws, for example, pay for seven draws, receive the eighth one free, pay for fourteen draws receive two free and so on. In other words, the more you play the more free draws you are entitled to!!

Following a decision by the Rhode GAA Committee a promoter's prize of €200 will now be given to the lotto book seller of the winning Jackpot prize.
