    Irish Lottery

    In school we have been doing the EuroMillions as a syndicate for a while now. It has been put forward by the comittee that we change to something different - they suggested the Irish Lottery.

    A google search reveals several web sites - but are they legit? Does anyone do the irish lottery online? I need to pay by card every week.

    Any advice welcome,

    Gareth

    What is the difference between the one you mention: Home - Lottery

    and

    Irish Lottery

    The first one you mention seems to be similar to the National Lottery here in the UK - especially since the logos all look the same and they do EuroMillions.

    What is the other one?

    Never heard of the other one. Doesnt look very genuine to me.
    Lotto.ie is the official one.

    Irish Lottery doesn't even have a contact number or address in Ireland, but does have a contact in the Netherlands. Does seem suspicious.

    Can't you play via betting websites like Ladbrokes?

    I'm sure you win alot more money than actually entering the irish lottery direct...

    1152 win on a 2 bet for 3 numbers....

    Hi MYK-IT

    Yes - I remembered this evening about the betting shops. As it happens I stumbled upon Vernons Pools and this week our syndicate have played Lucky Clover. We have 60 lines (we all put 2 a week).

    3 numbers is 500, 4 numbers is 5000 and 5 numbers is 50,000

    Who knows - we are researching different ones. I shall check out the Ladbrokes one you mention.

    Best wishes

    Gareth

    Is Ireland part of the Euro-Jackpot yet? The new European lottery that will replace the most common ones, I reckon. Haven't heard about Ireland so far, anyone get any news about that?

    When you place a bet with a bookie for the irish lottery, you are just betting against fixed odds and not taking part in the actual lottery.
    You are only able to pick up to 5 numbers instead of 6.
    You do get better odds on fewer numbers but a worst return if you pick all 5 numbers and they came up.
