The Irish lotto jackpot is never lower than €2,000,000.00 and is frequently worth in excess of €5,000,000.00. It can rise to €10,000,000 and more! The draw takes place every Wednesday and Saturday night on national television (RTE).

To win the Irish lotto jackpot, you must match the first six numbers drawn (1 to 45).

A seventh number is also drawn in Irish Lotto and it is called the 'bonus' number.

Although people tend to pick their own lucky Irish lotto numbers, a 'quick pick' option is available which instructs the Lotto computer to select the player's Irish lotto numbers.

The Irish National Lottery pays in excess of 50% of its funds in prize money. The balance is used to fund projects in Ireland in the areas of health, sport, recreation, arts, culture and national heritage, including the Irish language.

All Irish Lottery prizes are tax-free and are paid out in one lump sum.
