Irish Lotto Rollover
Updated: Friday 25th April 2014
Irish Lotto players have a jackpot of around €10 million to play for on Wednesday 2 September, 2009, so if you haven’t bought your tickets you’d better do so fast. You can buy lottery tickets online for the Irish lottery just as easily as you can for the UK Lotto and EuroMillions games, so don’t miss out on the chance of your numbers coming up!
The Irish Lotto results last Saturday 29 August were 11, 14, 27, 31, 37 and 45, and the bonus ball was 20. Unfortunately, nobody matched all six main numbers so the €8.8 million jackpot has rolled over to the next draw. The good news is that this gives us even more to play for tomorrow!
If you have not yet played the Irish Lotto then now might be a very good time to do so. Playing the Irish Lotto game is just as easy as playing the UK Lotto game – you simply choose 6 numbers from the range 1 to 45 and then keep your fingers crossed that those numbers come up when the lottery results are determined.
Many of you will have just noticed that the range of numbers used in the Irish Lotto game (1 to 45) is slightly smaller than that used in the UK Lotto game (1 to 49). That actually makes it easier to win the Irish Lotto jackpot from a statistical point of view. In short, your odds of winning the UK Lotto jackpot are 1 in 13,983,816, whilst your odds of winning the Irish Lotto jackpot are 1 in 8,145,060.
We don’t know about you, but we think that a lottery prize of around €10,000,000 to beat odds of 1 in 8,145,060 seems like quite a good deal! Of course, if two or more players match all six numbers then the Irish Lotto jackpot would be shared, but you could still be celebrating your new-found multi-millionaire status if the Luck of the Irish rubs off on you. Good luck!Published: Tuesday 1st September 2009
