The Irish Lotto is won by selecting six randomly drawn numbers ranging from 1 to 45 and matching all of those numbers. The odds of matching these numbers in a single entry 1 in 800,000,00. Participants are allowed to play two entries per ticket. An extra ” seventh number” awards prizes to participants if matched. The bonus number is irrelevant as far as the jackpot prize is concerned and is meant to offer consolation prizes to participants who fall off the jackpot mark. The Irish Lotto has produced two spin off games since inception, Lotto Plus and Lotto 5-4-3-2-1
For an extra 0.25 pounds per line, participants are allowed to enter their Lotto numbers in an additional 6 /42 drawing for a fixed 250,000 pounds jackpot. This jackpot is non-rolling. In the recent past, additional drawings named Lotto 1,and Lotto Plus 2 have been introduced. This raised the cost of Lotto Plus to 0.50 Euros per line. At inception jackpots for these two Lotto was fixed at 300,000 pounds and 200,000 pounds respectively. The jackpot was however raised in 2006 to 350,000 pounds and 250,000 pounds respectively when the National Lottery adopted a 6/45 matrix.
Lotto plus players can win small prizes for match-5 +bonus, match 5, match-4 +bonus, match-4 and match-3 + bonus. The odds of winning the jackpot and other prizes in a Lotto Plus game remain the same as the odds in the main lotto game. Majority of participants in the Irish Lotto play the Lotto Plus game.
Lotto 5-4-3-2-1 allows participants to win prizes by correctly matching one,two,three, four, or five of the numbers drawn. The more the numbers a participant matches, the greater the prize. Participants have the luxury of making their choices based on a six number game excluding the bonus number or a seven number game including the bonus number.
The Quick Pick Feature helps participants who do not want to pick their numbers by randomly generating the numbers for them. This is known as quick pick and advance play.
