How to Play

Playing the Irish Lotto is an easy alternative to buying a ticket when you are located outside of Ireland, allowing you to enjoy a game that would normally be unavailable to you:

Pick six numbers from 1 to 47. Select your own from the grid or select a Quick Pick to have a random set generated for you in an instant.

Fill in one panel for every set of numbers you want to play. Some online services might make you buy more than one ticket at a time if you are playing from outside Ireland

Choose how many draws to enter. You can enter just the next draw or subscribe to never miss a draw. The subscription options are for one month or three months at a time and will enter your numbers into each draw in that time frame.

Add your entries to the cart.

Check your selections are correct and then pay. You will need an online account, so register if you are a new user or just sign in if you’ve played before.

Wait for the draw to take place at 19:55 GMT on Wednesdays and Saturdays

FAQs

Find the answers to some of the most common questions about Irish Lotto to learn more about the game.

Is there a jackpot cap or rollover limit?

There is no rollover limit in Irish Lotto but there is a jackpot cap, which currently stands at €19.06 million. Once enough money has been added to the jackpot to meet or exceed this cap, no more money will be added to it in subsequent draws until it has been won.

In the meantime, the funds that would have gone to the jackpot will instead be allocated to the next highest prize tier with winners. Once the jackpot has been won, the cap increases to the amount it reached.

What is the biggest jackpot ever won?

The record for the largest jackpot ever won is €18.96 million. A syndicate from County Carlow won this record prize on June 28, 2008.
