Whether you play Irish Lotto or EuroMillions the traditional way by buying official tickets or you indulge in lottery betting at a bookmaker, there are great prizes to be won that could see your bank account blossom beyond your wildest dreams.
This week, a man from Co Mayo collected his cheque for €206,764 after matching five main numbers and one Lucky Star in the EuroMillions draw on Friday 14th August. The ticket holder bought his €6 Quick Pick entry at Kelly’s Garage in Newport and will put his winnings towards paying off a chunk of his mortgage and educating his children.
The man, who plays Irish Lotto and EuroMillions every week, admitted that he would probably need to spend some of his windfall on a family holiday to recover from the shock of seeing his numbers come up!
Also over the weekend, three lucky punters from Co Wexford managed to make it a miserable time for bookie Boylesports by claiming lottery betting winnings running into the thousands. The bettors each matched the same four numbers in Saturday’s Irish Lotto Plus 2 draw at odds of 3,000/1, with two of them snapping up €3,001 and the other taking the bookmaker for a massive €15,005.

Irish Lotto returns tonight with more opportunities to win, no matter whether you buy official tickets or place a bet. While there are great potential returns for players who bet on lottery games, you won’t be able to play for the game’s jackpot of €3 million. If you fancy a shot at a seven-figure bounty tonight, you can get hold of entries online at the Buy Tickets page or from authorised retailers across the country.
