Why Playing the Irish Lottery Results in Higher Winning Chances
Irish Lotto: Is this Europe’s most winnable lottery?
Ireland’s national lottery, Irish Lotto 6/47 is so popular that an impressive two-thirds of all Irish adults play this bi-weekly lottery.
And thanks to lottery messenger services like The Lottery Centre, so can people from across Europe – and the world.
Irish Lotto sees average jackpots of around €6 million, with a record jackpot high of €18.9 million. Annually, over €121 million are awarded in prizes.
But the best part about Irish lotto is that it often results in higher winning chances for lottery players. Here’s why:
Irish Lotto has some impressive odds, compared to the other, similar 6/49 format lotteries.
With overall odds of winning a prize at 1 in 29, and decent jackpot odds of 1 in 10,737,573 – there’s no getting around the fact that Irish lottery is statistically superior to many other lotteries out there.
Easier to Win
One reason many UK citizens favour the Irish lottery is that is it 76% easier to win the Irish Lotto jackpot than the UK National lottery.
This is mostly attributed to the Irish Lotto’s smaller number pool as well it’s bonus number – as this means there are fewer potential winning number combinations compared to the British Lottery.
Ways to Play
To play Irish Lotto, all one has to do is select 6 numbers from a pool of 1 – 47. The Irish lottery is drawn every Wednesday and Saturday, where 6 winning numbers and a bonus number is drawn from a field of 1 – 47.
