Irish Lotto Odds of Winning

The Irish Lotto compares favourably with many other lotteries around the world, with a relatively good chance of matching all six main numbers drawn to claim the top prize. The odds of winning the Irish Lotto jackpot of at least €2 million by matching six numbers correctly from 47 currently stand at 1 in 10,737,573.

This table shows the full breakdown of the chances of winning in each of the eight tiers:

Number Matched Prize Odds of Winning
6 main numbers Jackpot (minimum of €2 million) 1 in 10,737,573
5 main numbers + Bonus Ball Average of €100,000 (value dependent on size of prize pool and number of winners) 1 in 1,789,596
5 main numbers Prize value dependent on size of prize pool and number of winners 1 in 44,740
4 main numbers + Bonus Ball Prize value dependent on size of prize pool and number of winners 1 in 17,896
4 main numbers Prize dependent on size of prize pool and number of winners 1 in 1 in 918
3 main numbers + Bonus Ball Prize value dependent on size of prize pool and number of winners 1 in 688
3 main numbers Average of €9 (value dependent on size of prize pool and number of winners) 1 in 54
2 main numbers + Bonus Ball €3 Scratchcard 1 in 72

In the event that more than one player matches six main numbers to win the jackpot, the top prize will be split evenly among the winning ticket holders. Overall odds of winning any Irish Lotto prize are approximately 1 in 29.
