About the Irish Lotto


What?

The Irish Lotto or National Lottery in Ireland launched in 1987 and is the country’s state Lotto. It is hugely popular with a whopping two thirds of adults in Ireland claiming to regularly play Lotto games and millions from all over the world betting on it.

How?

  • 6 main balls plus a bonus ball are drawn from a selection of 1 – 47. E.g.: 1 6 16 28 32 45 Bonus 22
  • Betting without the bonus ball (best payout) – you can bet on up to 5 balls appearing from any of the main 6 drawn
  • Betting with the bonus ball (slightly lower payout because it’s easier!) – you can bet on up to 5 balls appearing from any of the main 6 drawn or the bonus ball

When?

The Irish Lotto is drawn twice weekly on Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 19:45pm (GMT). (Normally you need to have your bets placed between 15-30 minutes before the draw takes place)

Every Wednesday and Saturday evening, three draws take place including the main Lotto draw and Lotto plus 1 and Lotto plus 2
