The main source of income for the club is the weekly lotto. Any four numbers are selected from 1 to 36. If anybody matches the four numbers selected on each Saturday night he/she wins the Jackpot. €100 is added to the Jackpot every week that it's not won. 5 consolation prizes of €20 are drawn each week as well as two house prizes. Tickets cost €2 each.
Your continued support is much appreciated and we wish you good luck in future draws.
