Irish Lottery Betting Proves Popular with Players

As Irish lottery fans eagerly anticipate the chance to enter tonight’s Lotto draw or look forward to Friday’s edition of EuroMillions, others are continuing to reap the benefits of betting on the results. Rather than buying tickets in the traditional manner, many punters like to place wagers on certain numbers being drawn in a different way to try and take advantage of long odds.
A number of bookmakers offer Irish Lotto betting as it allows customers to put down a stake size of their choice rather than buy a ticket at a fixed price. They can also choose how many numbers they wish to bet on and the returns can be far bigger than if they enter the draws themselves. Two Boylesports punters recently landed €16,500.50 each after betting on four specific numbers coming out in either the EuroMillions or EuroMillions Plus draw on Tuesday 19th April at odds of 33,000/1.
Boylesports spokesperson Liam Glynn said: “It’s certainly true to say that small stakes can reap big dividends and the lucky two punters are certainly glad they played their EuroMillions numbers with BoyleSports as the four numbers only paid €2,000 if they had played them with the Lotto.”
While the two Boylesports customers opted to put down bets on EuroMillions, another two fans of the game transformed their lives last Friday after buying tickets for the draw. The players matched five main numbers plus one Lucky Star to scoop €191,461 each, showing that both techniques of playing the game can be worthwhile.
Whether you fancy placing a bet or entering a draw, there are lots of exciting prizes on offer this week. Tickets can be bought online or from authorised retailers in Ireland for tonight’s Irish Lotto draw, which is offering a jackpot worth €3 million while the top prize in Friday’s EuroMillions will be €65 million. You can also bet on the outcomes of the draws with several bookmakers. Good luck!
