How to Play Irish Lotto
Irish Lotto players must choose six numbers from 47 for each line they wish to play, with the multimillion-Euro jackpot won by matching all six with those drawn on the night. The Bonus Ball is dispensed from the same machine after the six main numbers and offers additional prizes when matched with two, three, four or five main balls. The Irish Lotto Prizes page offers information on what you can win and the odds of receiving a prize.

Playing Irish Lotto at an Authorised Retailer
There are around 3,700 lottery retailers across Ireland where you can play Irish Lotto. Simply fill in a playslip with your chosen numbers or ask staff for Quick Picks to receive some randomly generated lines.
If you buy physical tickets, it is advisable to sign the back of them as proof of ownership. The person holding a winning ticket can rightfully claim any prizes it has won if there is nothing to indicate that it belongs to someone else. You should also keep it in a safe place as claims cannot be made without the ticket to verify your purchase.
