How To Boost Your Chances of Winning Irish Lotto

How To Boost Your Chances of Winning Irish Lotto

Last Updated: Tuesday 1st May 2018, 10:14 am

An Irish Lotto jackpot of €7 million has been built up ahead of Wednesday night’s draw, giving players the opportunity to dream of what they would do with a seven-figure injection to their bank balance. But how can you increase your chances of landing a prize? Here are a few techniques:

Play in a Syndicate

The odds of winning are the same for every combination of Irish Lotto numbers, so the only way to improve your chances is to enter multiple lines. If you don’t fancy splashing too much cash on lots of tickets, though, you might want to think about joining a syndicate so that you can share the cost with other players.

A syndicate of three from Co. Cavan vowed not to quit work after winning an Irish Lotto jackpot of €6.4 million last July, while a Dublin family syndicate scooped €4.5 million last May and revealed how the windfall would help make life easier for generations to come.

Irish Lotto Subscription

Another way to keep the costs down is to take out an Irish Lotto Subscription. At just £9.99 a month, it is a significant discount and you are also guaranteed to never miss a draw. You will be automatically entered into two draws a week, and all you have to do is choose your numbers and sign up.

You can change your numbers at any time, and if you play on your own you will not even have to share your winnings like you would in a syndicate. Prizes are paid automatically into your account.

Random Numbers

While the chances of winning remain identical regardless of which numbers you choose, it could be worth playing random numbers to increase your chances of a larger payout. As the prize fund is split between winners, it is likely that there would be more winners in a draw where the numbers all followed a pattern. By selecting a random combination, there is a better chance that you would not have to share the jackpot if your numbers came up.

Use the Irish Lotto Number Generator to create a random set of numbers which you can use to play the game.

Big Jackpot

The €7 million Irish Lotto jackpot is the second-largest prize to have been offered on the game all year. The only time it went higher was on Wednesday 21st February, when an online player banked €7.1 million. If you want to follow in their footsteps, you can choose numbers online now or go to any authorised retailer in Ireland. Good luck!
