OGAE Ireland Sweepstake 2024

Our sweepstakes is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered.

It’s that time of year – where the predictions start being made, money starts being sent to the bookies – and OGAE Ireland have the next best thing for the members – the SWEEPSTAKE!

Get ready to get rid of your alliances, and place your hopes on two randomly selected countries that will be given to you, in the hope of collecting the most amount of points!

So, how will it work:

Pay a €5 entry – with proceeds going directly to our charity, Doctors Without Borders. After that, you’ll receive two countries from two pots: The first pot is the Top 19 countries, and the second pot is the Bottom 18 countries. These rankings are based on the current betting odds as of the publication of this article.

The aim is simple – collect the most (or least) amount of points possible and win!

You can get your ticket until Monday May 6th


If a country qualifies to the Grand Final, that’s great news for you – as you will collect the total amount of points that they earn in the Grand Final.

If a country fails to qualify to the Grand Final, don’t fret – you’ll still get some points awarded to you. For this, it will depend on the country’s placement in the bottom places. Since there are 15 countries in Semi Final 1, and 16 countries in Semi Final 2, this will work slightly differently, but it’s easy to understand – here’s the maximum amount of points the country can earn based on their placement:

  • 11th place: 25 points
  • 12th place: 20 points
  • 13th place: 15 points
  • 14th place: 10 points
  • 15th place in Semi Final 2: 5 points
  • Last place (15th place in Semi Final 1, 16th place in Semi Final 2): 0 points

However, if the country receives higher than this amount, they will be awarded the lower amount of points. And if they receive less than the maximum amount possible, they will receive the lower amount.

For example, if the country comes 11th and receives 34 points, it is over the maximum amount of points that can be earned, and therefore you get 25 points.

However, if your country comes 11th, and gets 19 points, the lower option of 19 points is awarded.

Who wins?

The person to score the highest amount of combined points will WIN!

Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and LAST place – so even if you do terribly, you could still win something!

FYI – the prizes are actually very good – so it is totally worth your while to enter!

So, what are you waiting for? ENTER NOW, and your countries will be sent to you within a few days by yours truly (Matthew)!
