How can I bet on Wednesday's $3.6M Irish Lotto?

Next draw: $3.6M on Wednesday, 16 Jun 2021 UTC

At Lottomart Games, you have the opportunity to bet on the outcome of Ireland’s Lotto which draws every Wednesday and Saturday at 8pm (GMT), from around the world. This is one of the many lottery games which we offer our customers the opportunity to bet on and that means that staggering jackpots, like the minimum €2m top prize for the Irish Lotto are available even if you’re not in Ireland!

The Irish Lotto is pretty easy to understand and follows the basic lotto format you’ll be very familiar with. There’s a minimum top prize of €2m available (international customers will receive the equivalent US Dollars amount) on every draw and if that’s not won, it rolls over! A line bet consists of 6 numbers from a single pool of 47 numbers, ranging from 1 to 47. You select 6 numbers which can be your own - birthdays, house numbers or maybe you’ve got a lucky number - or you can use quick pick to randomly select 6 numbers for you instead.

How does betting on a lottery differ from buying a ticket?

The way you play the game stays the same, so you’ll notice very little difference when betting on the Irish lotto at Lottomart Games. The only change is who pays out your winnings. If you manage to hit the big jackpot prize, then Lottomart Games will be paying you out that life changing sum - you can find out more about betting on lottery here.

How do I check my Irish Lotto results?

We will make the results available to our international customers as soon as possible after the official draw has taken place. You can find the draw details by going to My Buys.

Most prizes will be automatically credited to your account shortly after the draw is settled so will be in your account within a few hours. Bigger wins in the top prize tiers may be subject to a few more verification checks and may take a little longer to be settled.

The draw history can be found here, so you can easily see what numbers are hot and what ones are not!

How do I increase my chances of winning the Irish Lotto?

Sounds too good to be true right? Well it isn’t at Lottomart Games as we’ve developed the exclusive boost features which allows you to increase your chances of winning a prize on any of the lotto draws we offer. The concept is pretty simple.

You’ve seen the Irish Lotto jackpot has climbed to a whopping US$64m and you want in on that action, but would you rather one shot at US$64m or 32 shots at two million? Well for worldwide lottery bettors, Lottomart Games is the only place which offers that choice. In exchange for reducing the size of the prizes available, we’ll offer you a proportionate increase in line bets. We wanted to give Lottemart Games players more chances to win massive prizes, that’s why we created boost. For more information on how it works, please go to the Boost section in our support pages, or just have a go on the easy to use boost feature when placing your lottery bet.
