Ireland - Daily Million
Daily Million is a popular lottery game played in Ireland.
Daily Million draws are held twice a day (including public holidays) at 14:00 and 21:00 local time. Results are published one hour after the respective draws.
Entry into Daily Million costs €1.00 per line.
To enter Daily Million, choose six numbers between 1 and 39, or go for a Quick Pick to play with six randomly generated numbers.
Players can also enter Daily Million Plus, an additional draw that costs €0.50 to enter. Daily Million Plus sees the same numbers entered into a second draw with a €500,000 jackpot.
Daily Million also has an Advance Play feature, enabling players to enter draws for the next seven days if they wish.
Daily Million has a fixed jackpot of €1 million.
This jackpot does not roll over, with the fixed €1 million jackpot being shared equally if there is more than one winner.
Odds and Prizes
The odds of winning the Daily Million jackpot are 1 in 3,262,623. These are excellent odds, but the jackpot is lower than often available from other lotteries.
The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 14, or 1 in 7 if Daily Million Plus is added to the ticket.
Players can win at seven tiers, with fixed prizes on offer at each. The odds are the same for both Daily Million and Daily Million Plus, but with Daily Million Plus prizes being half the value of the main game.
