If you bet on the Irish Lotto at an online bookmaker you can choose to bet on between 1 - 5 balls. This gives you great flexibility and means you can win up to £150,000 from a £1 stake.
If you Select 6 balls in the more traditional way with online jackpot betting companies, you have a chance to win the jackpot as well as smaller pay-outs - this can be £10,000,000 or more.
The main differences between the two options are the probability of winning, flexibility and the potential winnings. Betting on 1 - 5 balls gives greater flexibility and can offer a higher probability of getting a return - however if you Select 6 balls, you’re in with the chance to scoop a life changing jackpot.
