That money you spent having a bet on the Irish Lotto... hoping.
The lottery machine span. Balls fell. Your heart raced.
That moment has arrived. You never thought it would happen. But tonight it has.
That £1 investment.
That wise £1 investment.
You check your Irish Lottery results and your lucky number has come in.
BOOM! £6 profit (good job you found the best price)!
So what could you do with your £6 after correctly predicting one number on this week's lotto? Well... here are our top eight recommendations to make the most of your new found wealth.

2 Pints of Ale

If you really want to push your luck, why not head down to your local and purchase a couple of pints of the cold stuff. Hopefully they don't cost more than three quid though, as you could be left red-faced hunting out a Good Samaritan to help you out. Alternatively, if you want to share your glory, why not treat a mate to a pint with you. He'll have to get the crisps in, mind.

Flowers for your loved one

You could do... Or just stop off at the shop on the way back from the pub and see if you can buy a daffodil with any change.

600 Books

You can buy loads of second-hand books for 1p on Amazon now. So why not start your own library? You might want to be a bit careful with the delivery costs though. What's that Amazon Prime free trial again?

Go to the cinema

How much!?!?

4 Loaves of Bread

Based on the average loaf of bread costing £1.24, you could stock up on no less than four loaves and pop a few in the freezer! Or, why not treat yourself and get some of that thick seeded stuff?

Smash up Poundland

Flash the big bucks in Poundland and you could be the owner of six new mysterious items. That could be a massive box of Mini Cheddars, some AAA batteries… maybe even a new kitchen bin. Or, if you're a bit shrewder, you'll head down to the 99p store leave with six items and 6p in change.

Some Top Quality Meat

Treat yourself to a prime fillet steak by going to your local supermarket or butchers and asking for the best cut of beef you can buy for £6.

A Full Child's Birthday Cake

If you've got more of a sweet tooth, what better way to celebrate winning the lottery than with a massive Spiderman cake all to yourself? Pop down to the supermarket, head to the cake aisle, find one with a yellow discount label on, tell the cashier it's for your kid and leave. Eat the whole thing in the car with just your hands.

Start a Website

If you don't fancy eating or drinking yourself silly, why not use the money to do something you've always wanted. It might be to start a blog or your own online business, it only costs about £6 to buy the domain name you need to get your idea in motion!

Now you've spent your £6 it might be time to buy that next lotto ticket...

Remember you can check the results for the Irish lottery for Wednesday and Saturday draws as well as the results for the UK National Lottery, Spanish Lottery, EuroMillions, New York Lotto and more.
