The Irish Lotto draws take place twice per week on Wednesday and Saturday.
This lotto is a 6/47 lotto and in order to play, you need to pick six numbers between 1 and 47.
Match all six numbers with those drawn and you'll win the Irish Lottery jackpot! There are lots of other prizes too and you only have to match 3 numbers to win one! The Bonus Ball is also drawn to increase the number of prize levels and reduce the odds.
The overall odds of winning an Irish Lotto prize is 1 in 29.
Each time the lotto jackpot is not won, there is a rollover to the next game, this continues until there is an Irish Lotto winner!
