How To Play Irish Lotto Bet

The Irish Lotto Bet (known as “Lucky Numbers” in Ireland) is based on the outcome of the Irish National Lottery.

There are 3 draws every Wednesday and Saturday. The three draws are called ‘Main Draw’, ‘2nd Draw’ and ‘3rd Draw’.

You can bet on 1 to 5 numbers from the 45 in each draw. Bookmaker bets may vary. Six numbers and a bonus ball are drawn and you can select to play either the 6 number or 7 number draw (which includes the bonus ball to increase your chances of winning).
