How much is it to Play the Irish Lottery?

The Irish Lotto is an exciting way to play for major jackpots without breaking the bank. For a small per line bet cost you stand a chance of winning multi-million-pound jackpots on this great value lottery.

Taking place every Wednesday and Saturday night at 8PM GMT, you can place your bet with £2 and access great odds of taking home any of the prizes of just 1 in 29, and if you're lucky you could hit the minimum jackpot of £1.4 million. What's more, that you can hit two more jackpots by placing a bet on the Irish Lotto Plus 1 and Plus 2 games for just £1 extra!

 

How do I pick my numbers?

Seeing as numbers are crucial to playing the lotto, you have to know how to pick. You can decide whether to choose your favourite numbers from 1–47, or simply go ahead with random the Quick Pick option.

To have a shot at the Irish Lotto Plus 1 and Irish Lotto Plus 2 draws, just tick the Irish Lotto + box which is based directly under the main game slip. Note that it is the same numbers you selected in the main game that will be used for your bet on the Plus 1 and Plus 2 draws. All three lottery bets are available for just £3 when you play online from the UK with Lottoland.

 

How does the draw work?

The Irish Lotto draw operates simply enough, requiring players to pick six numbers from balls numbered from 1-47 in the main draw.

Meanwhile, the Plus 1 and Plus 2 draws take place immediately after the main draw and the player selection of numbers is entered into both of these, as long as you tick the box at the bottom of the betslip to play for £1 extra.

 

How do I win the Jackpot?

Jackpots in the main game and the two Lotto Plus games are won when a player matches all six main numbers. Further prizes are available from the seven smaller prize tiers below the jackpot.

 

How much can I win from the Irish Lotto?

The minimum jackpot available from the Irish Lotto is £1.4 million, and this can rise to amounts considerably higher than this with the record draw standing at €18.9 million. The biggest prize on Lotto Plus 1 is £900k, while an additional £225k jackpot is available on the Plus 2 draw. Players can have a chance at winning all three by upping their bet from £2 to just £3.

 

With relatively decent odds at winning the jackpot, a low entry price and the opportunity to be in to win three lotteries at the same time, it’s no surprise that the Irish Lotto is picking up more and more fans in the UK!
