Win Big with Irish Lottery Betting
Last Updated: Friday 8th May 2015, 12:47 pm
An anonymous Irish punter showed how profitable betting on lotteries can be this week when he scooped more than €34,500 from a €6 EuroMillions wager. Rather than buying tickets for the draw on Tuesday 5th May, the lucky bettor staked his cash with a bookmaker instead, and the gamble paid off!
The Co. Louth man snapped up €1,501 for matching three numbers, which would have won him €11.60 had he played EuroMillions directly, and €33,001 for matching four numbers, which was worth €97.50 in the official draw.
Many lottery fans like to try their hand at betting on the outcome of a particular draw thanks to the opportunity to win prizes for guessing anything from just one ball correctly. William Hill currently offers a return of six times your stake if you choose one number on Irish Lotto and then manage to match it, with odds rising up to 100,001/1 for choosing and matching five numbers.
Of course, one advantage of buying Irish Lotto tickets over lottery betting is that you always play six numbers, which increases your chances of matching three, four or five balls. With betting, you have to match the exact number of balls that you selected. In addition, buying official Irish Lottery tickets allows you to play for the multimillion Euro jackpots that are on offer twice a week for €1.50 a line, whereas you’d have to stake €10 and correctly match five balls to win €1 million at a bookies.
Betting on the Irish Lottery is a fun additional way to enjoy this great game, and you can find out more about how it works at the dedicated page. If you like the thrill of playing for really big money, however, then you should buy Irish Lotto tickets, after which you could be just one step away from owning that flashy mansion and sportscar.
