Those who don’t do Rangers Lottery - why not?

All my family pay a couple of quid a week on direct debits, you don't miss it.

It's going to the club too, but I also understand it's an individual choice for everyone.

The thing I like about it is that you don't need to bother checking it, as they'll let you know if you win.

My uncle won a few months ago and the first he knew about it was when they contacted him.

When the old Rangers Pools were at its height, we were the biggest in Britain, even Mhank supporters signed up to it, our payouts were vastly superior to theirs.
The reason I was given was if they won they were taking money from Rangers fans for little input.
The Rangers pools agent near me was a bheggar.

wouldn’t really call it gambling imo, for me I’m contributing to the club. If I win I win if I don’t I don’t, not the same as say putting on a coupon two three times a week losing money to a massive company that I have no reason to support if that makes sense.
I’m a recovering compulsive gambler and I’d be staking money to potentially win money in return. If I start getting involved in things like Rangers Lotto then it won’t be long till I’m back punting on two snails racing along the street and causing havoc in my and my families lives again... with all due respect :)

I’ll happily contribute money to the club in other ways which don’t impact my recovery!

on a side note it woul dbe better if they had an on line portal with your numbers, that you could go on and check. See winners etc. I got sent tickets and you couldnt read three of them as the ink had smudged!

Well done Livi. Much respect from me. Stay strong young man.

People seem to win multiple times where as others don't ever - I don't really trust the process seemed a closed shop from some Rangers Twitter Celebs so chucked it.

Alarm bells are starting to ring for me aswell - seems to be blind faith that they will draw and check your numbers. Is htis actually independantly checked?

I won £500 two or three years ago. I have £4 a week going in for the past 5 years, so I'm really about £332 down, but for me it is more the fact that I'm doing my lottery with Rangers. I don't buy any other lotto's. Any other giving goes to the Sally Army, cancer research or random charity collection tins that take my fancy at Ibrox or when out and about. I really think they could do more to promote it on a basic level to fans. From my own sales background, they really need to be going with a cause and effect strategy and not just random shout outs and bog posters. Maybe it's just that i don't see their efforts as i'm not a twitter person and haven't bought a programme for years, but it does seem quite subdued. No getting away from the huge avenues of betting however these days which will hamper the spend.

How can a lotto open to absolutely anyone be a closed shop haha what does that even mean!?

If anyone is to be trusted at the club its Colin Stewart. Some of the comments are a shambles.

I've been paying £2 for around 3-4 years now . I haven't won a penny but that is not the point.
The money would come in handy, but it's the funding of OUR future, through development of our youths.
We have been through some pretty tough years, and a token contribution to our existence in the future is a small part to play. I realise not everyone can afford £100 per year, when domestic budgets are tight, and also all the others demands from Rangers, and RTV , plus Club1872 are met for family requests for strips etc , but I personally see it is a priority for our club and our future.

Well said Sir. It is not for everyone to do Lotto or Rangers Pools but some out there dont even know about them.
Anyone who has had a prob, for whatever reason, signing up then please DM me and you can be signed up to my agency within minutes. I will email you your nos. Will also post out your official number cards within 3 to 4 days.

They can take it off my cccs payment where it’s looking you will have to pay when joining like the travel club.

It costs a fortune to follow follow.

People can’t do everything.

Set up DD when we were in trouble etc.

Its down to the club to market these kinds of revenue streams and inspire players. There is a mentality on here that the club is some sort of charity case and we should all be throwing money at them no matter the case whether it provides value or not. I don't think its fair to criticise or pressure people for £1 a week.
£670 - Season ticket
£250 - Albion car park
£150 - ?? For Europa league matches. I don't even question those prices, they come off my account and thats that.
£??? - cup games
£??? - food/drink in the stadium
£??? - match day programmes
£??? - buying tickets for nieces/nephews to come along.
£180 - on new tops and other bits and pieces from the Gers Store.
£12 - monthly on RTV.

The list goes on.

Just reading on Twitter, Colin Stewart from Rangers saying that over the Christmas period they’ve lost quite a few direct debit subscribers and that the total number of current players could fit into the Sandy Jardine Stand.

Given that we have 50,000 at every game plus many thousands more who don’t/can’t attend, it seems pitiful that less than 10,000 are prepared to pay £1 a week into the club. Once you sign up (which is very straightforward to do), you are sent a note of your numbers and that’s it. You don’t even have to check them every week as the club do that for you and post a check if you win.

If you don’t currently play, why not?

If you want to start playing, sign up here.

Thank you for this post and all of the replies. I am the first to agree that playing a Lottery is not for everyone. There is also the cost element. I put up a Twitter post yesterday looking to encourage more fans, who were able, to sign up for £1 a week. I'm delighted to confirm that since that tweet we have had £236 of DDs signed up. Tremendous support from our fans.

I note a couple of posts on this thread questioning one or two things. Our draw is a very simple one, each week someone, outside of RYDC staff, draws the winning balls from our Lottery Drum in the RYDC Office. Martyn Waghorn has done our draw, so has Bomber, so has our Postman. Would you like to come to the office and do the next draw? I'm happy to have a chat re the Lotto process from start to finish and you could do next week's draw? Everyone is welcome to do this for us. If you would like to do our weekly Lotto Draw then please email us at rydc@rangers.co.uk.

I also note one or two saying they have had issues signing up. Without knowing the personal details of each case, in our experience banks reject DDs for a variety of reasons. Please email us at rydc@rangers.co.uk or call us on 0141 427 4914 and we will quickly sort for you. In terms of signing up to Rangers Lotto, this simple link will allow you to join within 45 seconds. Just click the link and complete your details

I would be failing in my role if I stopped trying to recruit new revenue streams for the Academy. I also keep a watchful eye on other clubs & I'm not comfortable confirming that we are behind in terms of fan numbers playing their clubs' Lotto / Pools competitions. I see no reason why that should be. I'm happy to confirm that we gave away £375,000 in Prizemoney to fans last year. That amount will rise as more fans join.

Thank you to all those buying RYDC products and to those thinking of joining Lotto? Give us a try, you might win some money and you will be helping to fund our future. My email address is colinstewart@rangers.co.uk if anyone would like to know more about Lotto or any of the other RYDC products.

Many Thanks
Colin
