Irish National Lottery

The Irish Lotto is a 6 from 47 lottery game which replaced the old Irish Hospital Sweepstakes in 1988. It pays out more than 50% of its funds in prize money. The balance is used to fund projects in the areas of health, sport, recreation, arts, culture, and national heritage.  Since it was founded, the Irish Lotto has expanded its repertoire of games to include lotto drawings, television bingo, televised game shows, and participation in the transnational EuroMillions lottery.

By the end of 2012, the National Lottery had already earned over €12 billion in cumulative sales, paid out €6.7 billion in prizes, and collected more than €4.2 billion for the good causes it supports.

Irish Lotto draws are held every Wednesday and Saturday. Its largest jackpot was  €18,963,441 which was won by a syndicate of sixteen work colleagues at the Dan Morrissey (Ireland) Ltd quarry and concrete plant in July 2808, while the second-largest jackpot of €16,185,749 was won in July 254007 by a family from Cork.

Draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday night and jackpots are won by matching the first 6 numbers drawn from 1 to 47, plus a 'bonus' number. This makes the Irish Lottery one of the easier lotteries tow in as far as a seven-figure jackpot is concerned. Of course a good dose of Irish luck won’t hurt.
