1988 was the year Die Hard was released at the cinema, Elle McPherson graced the front pages of glamour magazines and Guns N’ Roses released Welcome to the Jungle. It was also the year the first Irish National Lottery draw took place!

Since its humble beginnings in 1988, Irish Lottery has grown in popularity and is now one of the most played European lotteries. The jackpots are getting bigger and there are so many reasons to win from draws of Irish Lottery.

You might think you know all there is to know about this European lottery, however there are 5 things you’ll kick yourself for not knowing about Irish National Lottery.

You don’t have to be Irish to play

The first thing you need to know is you can play our Irish Lotto without leaving Australia. If you have internet access you can logon, select your numbers, play and have the chance to win a huge Irish Lotto jackpot without leaving home.

When you purchase a ticket in our Irish Lotto draw, we purchase a ticket in the Irish National Lottery draw held in Ireland. It’s as easy as that!

The prizes are big

Irish Lotto jackpots start at AUD$3 million, and the biggest Irish National lottery jackpot was more than AUD$28 million! A life-changing amount of money in the eyes of anyone!

It’s easy to play

Out of all international lotteries, Irish Lotto is probably one of the simplest to play. All you need to do is select 6 numbers between 1 and 47, and if all your numbers match those drawn you win the jackpot! Even if you don’t match every number there are prizes to be won in another 6 divisions.

Irish Lotto is drawn twice a week

There are even more chances to win because Irish Lotto is drawn twice every week. Don’t ever miss a draw, it’s drawn every Thursday and Sunday (AEST).

Irish Lotto is more than big jackpots

Last, but not least, there’s more to Irish Lotto than big jackpots and big winners. A portion of the ticket price of our Irish Lotto is allocated to Australian based charities. It’s hard to believe, but Irish National Lottery can also raise up to AUD$6 million a week for good causes within Ireland.
