How to Play

In Irish Lotto, you are required to select six numbers from 1 to 47. You can choose your own numbers or go for a Quick Pick if you would prefer to get a random selection via a lucky dip.

You can play in advance for two, four or eight draws, and just need to get your entries in before 7:45pm on a Wednesday or 7:55pm on a Wednesday to be eligible for that night’s draw.

Each line costs €2, and the minimum play is two lines. You can also select the ‘Plus’ option for an extra €1 per line, if you also want to play Plus 1, Plus 2 and the Raffle.

Prizes

You win prizes by matching your chosen numbers to those that are drawn as the winning Irish Lotto numbers. As well as the six main numbers, a Bonus Ball is also drawn from the 41 balls that are remaining.

Prizes start from matching as few as two main numbers plus the Bonus Ball. To win the jackpot, you must match all six main numbers. The top prize is guaranteed to be worth at least €2 million, and it can go far higher.

The majority of prizes are pari-mutuel, so the value will vary from draw to draw depending on the number of winners. The prize for matching three numbers, for example, might be between €7 and €12.

The table below shows details of all eight prize tiers:

Lotto Plus

If you add the Plus option, it gives you three extra chances to win. Your numbers from the main draw will be entered into the Lotto Plus 1 and Lotto Plus 2 draws which take place on the same night. You will also be given a code for the Lotto Plus Raffle.

The Lotto Plus draws are held separately to each other and the main draw, so it is entirely possible for the same number to be selected in all the draws. You can also win prizes in different draws on the same night.

Lotto Plus 1 offers a jackpot of €1 million. The following table shows all the prizes you can win in Lotto Plus 1.

The Lotto Plus Raffle code on your ticket consists of a four-digit combination. If it matches the winning code drawn on the night, you win €500. The odds of winning the Lotto Plus Raffle are 1 in 10,000.

Occasionally, promotional raffle draws take place in which an additional €1 million is added to the total prize fund. When this happens, the winners receive a significantly larger prize than normal; often around €10,000 each.
