Irish Lotto Plus 2
Irish Lotto Plus 2 is one of two additional games which can be played alongside the main Irish Lotto game and offers a range of cash prizes. The game was launched in 2002 with a fixed jackpot of €200,000, which increased to €250,000 in November 2006.
In the game, six main numbers from 1 to 45 are selected and an additional Bonus Ball is drawn from the remaining 39 numbers. To win the jackpot, players are required to match all six main numbers but, in common with Lotto Plus 1, the jackpot will not roll over to the following draw if there are no jackpot winners.
How to Play Lotto Plus 2
Both the Lotto Plus 2 and Lotto Plus 1 games can be played for a single additional fee of €0.50 per line when purchasing tickets for the main Lotto draw. Players select six numbers from a range 1 to 45 for the main Irish Lotto draw and then mark the Lotto Plus option on their tickets to have those same numbers entered into the Lotto Plus draws.
Two different sets of numbers are drawn for both Lotto Plus games, meaning that players have three chances of winning prizes from the same set of Lotto numbers chosen. It is possible to win prizes in all three draws from the same set of Lotto numbers, so players are advised to check their tickets carefully.
