How much do you know about the Irish National Lotto?

Well, it might not be the most well-known lottery in the world, but it has definitely had its fair share of winners over the past 30 years, with many lucky entrants taking home AUD$1 million dollars or more.

The first draw in the Irish National Lotto was on Saturday the 16th of April 1988, after the Irish Government passed the National Lottery Act, 1986, to raise money for charities and other good causes. Since then it has grown from strength to strength, with 2 draws per week and huge jackpots every Thursday and Sunday (AEST).

Irish National Lotto’s biggest winner

The Irish National Lotto can definitely hold its own against other big international lotteries, with the largest Irish lottery jackpot reaching a whopping AUD$30 million. The lives of 16 lucky concrete plant workers were changed forever when their syndicate took out this massive jackpot back in 2008, and it’s still the largest jackpot prize ever won in Irish Lotto.

As of the time of publishing, the most recent jackpot has exceeded AUD$12 million, proving that for a country the size of Tasmania, their lotto packs a real punch in the big jackpot stakes.

How to play

Irish Lotto is easy to play, it’s as simple as selecting a combination of 6 numbers out of a possible 47, and if you match all 6 you win the jackpot.
