Why is the Irish Lotto the better bet and how do I play from the UK?

In recent weeks you may have seen news articles about the record-breaking €19 million Irish Lottery jackpot, which has rolled over 11 straight times! The roughly £16 million pot compared to the £2 million currently offered on the UK Lotto combined with a better chance of winning (1 in 10.7 million for Irish Lotto to 1 in 45 million for UK Lotto) mean that smart lottery lovers are looking to play the Irish Lottery.

If you are from the UK and feel like you are missing out, don’t worry, you don’t need to hop on a flight or boat to the Emerald Isle!

The main draw offers a minimum jackpot of a minimum of £1.4m

In this article you will learn how to bet on the Irish Lottery online from the UK from your laptop or mobile.

Betting on the Irish Lotto with Lottoland has never been easier

Although you can’t buy tickets for the Irish Lottery unless you are a resident of Ireland you can do the next best thing and bet on the Irish Lotto when betting with Lottoland – even if you are from the UK.

So, how do you do this?

It’s super easy - all you have to do is visit Lottoland’s Irish Lottery page. If you’re a new customer, you can quickly register and take advantage of a 3-for-1 bet on your first Irish Lottery bet.

Betting on the Irish Lottery is almost the same as the UK Lotto, picking six numbers from 1-47 and a bonus ball. Confirm your selections and wait until after 8pm on Wednesday or Saturday evening to see the outcome!

A bet on the Irish Lotto costs £2 (the same as the UK Lotto) and you can take 2 more chances to win for £1 extra. When you bet on the Irish Lottery results with Lottoland you are in the same position as if you had bought an official Irish Lottery ticket and can win the same great prizes and jackpot.

So, why the Irish Lotto?

The odds of winning a prize on the Irish Lotto are 1 in 29. On top of this, the actual jackpot odds (just over 1 in 10 million) are also very reasonable compared to most other lottos. For example, the odds of winning the UK Lotto is 1 in 45,057,474!

The main draw offers a minimum jackpot of a minimum of £1.4M, with an additional £900,000 possible with the Plus 1 draw and a further £225,000 on the Plus 2 draw. This means you have the chance to win three jackpots for just £3.

Have you got the luck of the Irish?

Ultimately, winning the lottery is all about going the extra mile. However, to significantly boost your odds of winning, you need a lottery that makes it easier for you. The Irish Lotto does just this by maximising your chances of winning with the lower odds and the chance to win three jackpots.

Just a little reminder – players must be 18 or over and Lottoland is not affiliated with the official Irish National Lottery or its operator Premier Lotteries Ireland. However, your chances and jackpot prizes remain the same, and you get to play from the UK. A win-win situation.

So, now that you know how to play the Irish Lotto online from the UK, good luck with your bets and may your betting journey end with a pot of gold,
