Ireland, the Land of Luck if you wish, has its own great national lottery with a jackpot record standing at €18,900,000 won by a Syndicate of 16 work colleagues in June 2008 – how great is that!?
The Irish Lotto is the flagship game of the Ireland lottery. It’s based on a 6/47 matrix. The starting jackpot is €2 million and is rolled over to the next drawing until it’s won. Draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday and can be watched live on the Irish TV.
To land a huge top-prize a player needs to match the 6 winning numbers from 1 to 47 – you could probably guess this simple playing format provides attractive winning odds and you’d be correct, as Irish Lotto really is a complete package when it comes to lottos!

The first draw in Irish Lotto was held in March 1988, a year later after the country’s national lottery institution was formed. Like many other national lotteries, Irish Lotto supports a number of good causes with part of the money generated from ticket sales, including sport and recreation, health and welfare, arts and national heritage, as well as the natural environmental. The game has paid out over 7 billion euros to winners and over 5 billion euros to good causes.
Unfortunately, it hasn’t always been smooth for Irish Lotto – because of the last global economic crisis, which hit the country hard, the Irish government was somewhat forced to sell the license for its national lottery game to a private operator for 20 years.
So in February 2014, Premier Lotteries Ireland took ownership of the license and fortunately for players, the company has been maintaining operations to a high standard. You’re welcome to check the latest Irish Lotto Results anytime here at LottoPoint, right after the drawing.
Which brings us to the playing format – as you’d expect of a country so closely associated with Lady Luck, it really is great. The game features a nice round, guaranteed starting jackpot of €2,000,000 euros with unlimited rollovers, two weekly draws on Wednesdays and Saturdays and 7 prize categories to ensure winning a prize is not only possible but likely as well.
