New Daily Million Draw Launched
Last Updated: Tuesday 19th April 2016, 10:48 am
Daily Million fans will now be able to play for €1 million twice a day, thanks to an extra draw that was launched this week. The two opportunities to become an instant millionaire run at 2pm and 9pm every day of the week, with both offering an additional chance to win courtesy of the Daily Million Plus supplementary game.
The cost of a line remains at €1 for a shot at matching all six main numbers from a choice of 39 to bank a seven-figure payout, with entry into Daily Million Plus, boasting a jackpot of €500,000, available for an additional €0.50. Prizes start at €3 for matching three main numbers in Daily Million, with a €2 scratchcard on offer for those who match three main balls in Daily Million Plus.
Your odds of hitting the Daily Million jackpot stand at 1 in 3,262,623 and the chances of winning any prize are ranked at 1 in 28. For those who opt in to Daily Million Plus, the odds of picking up one of the awards on offer drop to a very decent 1 in 14.
The game has been running since Tuesday 11th September 2012 and has produced 28 Daily Million and Daily Million Plus jackpot winners in that time. The most recent was a woman who bought her €1 million ticket for the draw on Monday 15th February in Balrothery, Co Dublin and claimed the win had not come as a surprise. She commented that “there was something telling me I was going to win a big lottery prize in the last few months” when she picked up her cheque at lottery headquarters in Dublin.
More than €35 million has been paid to Daily Million players in prizes since the game was launched and lottery players across Ireland will hope that figure shoots up thanks to the introduction of the extra draw. The counties that have received the largest share of the spoils were revealed last year to be Mayo, Kerry and Dublin.
As well as having two attempts on the Daily Million jackpot today, there is a €21 million EuroMillions top prize on offer too. You can buy EuroMillions tickets online through the Buy Tickets page or from authorised retailers across Ireland.
