Wednesday 17 March is St Patricks Day, and EuroMillions players who fancy celebrating by giving themselves a chance of winning a big-money prize might want to consider buying tickets for the Irish Lottery draw. The jackpot for the draw on St Patricks Day will be worth around €5.5 million (around £4.9 million) so if you think you might benefit from the “luck o’ the Irish” you should buy your tickets promptly!
The base jackpot level in the Irish Lottery game is €2 million, so the fact that there is €5.5 million up for grabs at the time of writing gives participants excellent value for money. EuroMillions players who are used to much larger jackpots might not think that €5.5 million is particularly impressive, but if you look at the odds of winning the Irish Lottery jackpot you will quickly appreciate how good it is.
As you know, the odds of winning the EuroMillions jackpot are 1 in 76,275,360, but the odds of winning the Irish Lottery jackpot are 1 in 8,145,060. Those odds make a €5.5 million jackpot look extremely attractive. You will still need a hefty dash of luck to with the jackpot outright, of course, but that observation applies to all lottery games.
To play the Irish Lottery you will need to visit our Irish Lottery page and click on the banner at the top of the page to use our concierge service. Follow the ‘play online’ link and then select Ireland and you will be taken to the entry page. Now select six numbers in the range 1 to 45 for every entry that you want to make and proceed as instructed.
The whole process of buying Irish Lottery tickets online takes just a few minutes, so you will be able to spend the rest of St Patricks Day as you please. And don’t forget, if you also play EuroMillions online then you just might win the €29 million jackpot that is up for grabs this Friday 19 March! Good luck!
