HOW TO BET ON THE IRISH LOTTO AT BOYLESPORTS
Go To The Irish Lotto Page On The BoyleSports App/Website
The first thing you’ll need to do to bet on the Irish Lotto at BoyleSports is to go to the Irish Lotto page on our app/website. You can click HERE to bring you to that page.
If you are using the BoyleSports app then you can tap down in the bottom right hand corner of the homepage, as indicated in the below screenshot.
Then tap where it says ‘LOTTO’ as you can see below.
This will bring you to BoyleSports Lotto where you can bet on 12 lotto draws from around the world! Go ahead and tap on the Irish Lotto tab as shown below and then you are ready to start creating your Irish Lotto bets.
SELECT THE NUMBERS YOU WANT TO PLAY
The next step is picking the numbers you think will be drawn in the Irish Lotto. You can bet on as little as one number or as many as five numbers.
Here is a list of the great Irish Lotto odds that you can avail of at BoyleSports.
For this example we are going to pick three numbers. To select a number simply tap/click on it.
Seven is my lucky number so I’m going to pick 7, 17 and 27. You can of course pick which ever numbers you prefer when making your own bet.
NOT SURE WHAT NUMBERS TO PICK? TRY OUR QUICKPICK!
If you aren’t sure what numbers you want to pick then you can try your luck with a quickpick. Tap on one of the quickpick boxes on your screen that you can see highlighted below.
We are going to go with a 3-number quickpick for this example but you can also choose a 4-number or 5-number quickpick depending on which you prefer.
When we tap the quickpick box it chooses three numbers at random for us. In this case it has given us 2, 23 and 33. If you don’t like the numbers that the quickpick gives you then you can just clear them and try it again until you’re happy with the numbers you have.
CHOOSE WHICH DRAW(S) YOU WANT TO BET ON
We’re almost there! There are three draws you can bet on for the Irish Lotto. The ‘Main’, ‘Plus 1’ and ‘Plus 2’. All these draws have balls numbered from 1-47 that will be randomly selected and the odds are the same for all of the draws.
It’s most common for people to bet on all three draws or just the ‘Main’ draw but you can bet on whichever draws you would like.
I’m going to go with all three draws for both Saturday and Wednesday to improve my chances of getting a winner!
CHOOSE YOUR STAKE AND IF YOU WANT TO INCLUDE THE BONUS BALL
Next you will enter what stake we want to put on your Irish Lotto bet. I’m going to go with a €/£1 stake for my bet.
This €/£1 stake will make the total bet cost equal €/£6 as we are betting on six draws.
We also have the option of including the bonus ball which is the final ball drawn in the lotto draws.
This time I’m not going to include the bonus ball but it’s definitely worth considering as there are great odds of 400/1 if you do include it with a slightly better chance of a winning bet too!
With our €/£6 stake we could win as much as €/£4,206 and if our three numbers come up in just one of the draws we would win €/£701!
ADD TO BETSLIP AND PLACE YOUR BET
All you need to do now is tap/click on the ‘ADD TO BETSLIP’ button as you can see below.
Then check your betslip to make sure that you’ve included the numbers you want on it and confirm the bet!
That’s all there is to it! That is how to bet on the Irish Lotto at BoyleSports. As you can see it is a really straightforward process that can take less than a minute.
