How to Play The Irish Lotto From Overseas

The Irish Lotto has been going for over 30 years now and each week players have the chance to get their hands on jackpots of millions of pounds. The Irish Lotto features 2 draws per week as well as additional games like the Raffle which you can also opt into. One of the coolest things about this lottery is that despite its name, you can actually play the Irish Lotto from anywhere in the world. If you are overseas for business, on vacation with the family or on a longer trip hopping between countries and you don’t want to miss your chance to win big, here is how you can make sure that no matter where you are, you have a chance to win. 


The reason why this is a Lotto that has been opened up to the rest of the world is because of the sheer demand of those looking to bag tickets for this particular lottery game. The main reason behind this is because the odds for the Irish Lotto are significantly more favorable when compared with others of its type, giving you a bigger chance to win. With realistic jackpots and a game which is very easy to play, it isn’t hard to see why so many love the Irish Lotto, and why knowing how to play the Irish Lotto from abroad is going to be of value to so many. 

Buying the Ticket 

You can access the Irish Lottery website, sign up for a profile and start playing no matter where in the world you happen to be. Once you have got yourself set up simply take a look at which will be your lucky 6 numbers. Pick six of the best between 1 and 47, which you hope will be the winning choice once the draw is made. Once you have finally decided on your 6 lucky numbers, next you’ll need to choose which draws you wish to be entered into. Here you can select Wednesday and Saturday or just one of the two. If you do select both then you can use the same numbers on both or you can have different numbers for each draw, the choice is yours. 

Optional Extras 

When you buy the ticket you will also be given the option of adding the ‘Plus’ feature, which will cost an additional €1 per line. What you will get if you opt for a Plus ticket is automatic entry into the Lotto Plus 1 and 2 draws, as well as the Plus raffle, which gives you 3 extra chances to win. Another option which is great if you know that you are going to be flying or busy for future draws is to buy tickets in advance, you could opt to keep your numbers for 4 draws, and pay it all off in one go. 

Once you have settled on those lucky numbers simply process your payment and then keep your fingers crossed for a big win. You can check on the Lotto website to see what the results are, and use their handy checker to see if you have been a winner. Not in Ireland? Don’t worry about it, you can join in the fun online from anywhere in the world.
