How to Bet on the Irish Lotto
It is quick and simple to bet on the Irish Lotto. When you use an online lottery service such as Jackpot.com, the process is very similar to entering the official draw. Here’s how it works:
1. Pick six numbers from 1 to 47. You can choose your own numbers or select a Quick Pick to receive a random set.
2. To place more than one bet, move on to the next panel and repeat the process. You can add up to eight bets to the cart at once. If you want to submit more, just return to the betting slip page and repeat the process.
3. Choose how many draws to enter. You can bet on just the next draw or subscribe to enter all draws for either one month or three months. The benefit of a subscription is that you do not have to worry about entering bets before every draw and discounts can sometimes be available on each wager. Hit Add To Cart when you are ready to proceed.
4. Check you are happy with your bets, then select ‘Pay’ to complete your purchase.
You will need to register for a Jackpot.com account if you are a new user, or sign in if you already have an account. You must have funds in your account to pay for all the draws you are entering. If you subscribe, you will pay to enter all the draws in your specified period straight away.
