Ireland Lottery Games

Despite being fairly new in Ireland, with the first game launching as recently as 1988, lottery games are hugely popular and are now a major part of Irish life. Collectively known as The Irish National Lottery, all games are run by Premier Lotteries Ireland, which currently holds the government licence to operate lottery games across the country. As well as being popular locally, Irish lottery games are also widely played across the United Kingdom, both online and via bookmakers.

Lotto

Lotto is the primary national lottery game and was the first lottery to be launched in 1988. Entry is relatively inexpensive at just €2.00 per ticket, with players choosing two sets of numbers.

Players can also go for the Lotto Plus option for an additional €1.00, which grants entry into three additional games featuring jackpots up to €500,000!

Daily Million

Daily Million draws are held twice a day, with tickets costing €1.00 each. Unusually, for a game with such regular draws, Daily Million also has a secondary game called Daily Million Plus for an extra €0.50. The Daily Million Plus jackpot is €500,000, with each draw having a total jackpot pool of €1,500,000!

Euromillions

Ireland is one of nine countries that participate in the transnational Euromillions game, and while Euromillions has far longer odds than other lotteries available in Ireland, players are attracted by its huge jackpots and the variety of secondary prizes.

Players can also enter Euromillions Plus for the chance to win a €500,000 jackpot following each Euromillions draw.
