The Irish National Lottery was established in 1986 as a way to help raise vital funding for good causes in the Republic. Ticket sales for scratchcards began in 1987 and were soon followed by the classic game, Irish Lotto, in March 1988. In 2014, the Irish government sold the lottery to Premier Lotteries Ireland, a private company whose investors include the Ontario Teachersí Pension Plan, who own the Camelot Group responsible for running the UK National Lottery.
Irish Lotto is a well-loved draw game held on Wednesday and Saturday nights. The largest prize won so far on the Irish Lotto was in 2008 when Ä18.9 million was shared between sixteen colleagues at a County Carlow quarry and concrete plant. Other great games offered by the Irish National Lottery include Lotto Plus 1, Lotto Plus 2, Lotto Plus Raffle, Daily Million, EuroMillions and the supplementary EuroMillions Plus game. Players must be at least 18 years old. Irish Lotto prizes must be claimed within 90 days of the draw for which the ticket was purchased.
