Irish LOTTO is the flagship game of Ireland's National Lottery, which was founded by the Irish government in 1986 to fund projects in the areas of health, sport, recreation, arts, culture and national heritage, and most recently, the natural environment.
It is currently operated by Premier Lotteries Ireland, which took ownership of the license on 27th February 2014 after its sale by the Irish government.
Irish Lotto draws are held twice a week Wednesday and Saturday, with Jackpots starting at €2,000,000. When the jackpot is not won, it rolls over to the next draw, increasing in value until it is finally won. To date, the largest ever Irish Lotto jackpot was €18.9 Million, won on 28 June 2008 by a syndicate of 16 work colleagues at a quarry and concrete plant in Bennekerry, Carlow.
There are 7 prize divisions in Irish Lotto, each with a corresponding prize payout amount:
|Division 1||6 Main Numbers||€2,000,000 or more|
|Division 2||5 Main Numbers + Bonus||€25,000|
|Division 3||5 Main Numbers||8.17% of prize pool shared among all winners|
