Irish Lottery Adds Second Daily Million Draw

The Irish Lottery has launched an additional Daily Million draw, allowing players two chances every day to scoop a seven-figure sum. The draws now take place at 2pm and 9pm, seven days a week, with ticket holders having to match six numbers from a choice of 39 to claim the €1 million top prize. Both draws are accompanied by a Daily Million Plus draw, with a jackpot of €500,000 up for grabs for those who pay an extra €0.50 on top of the €1 fee per line in the main game.

Irish Lottery Adds Second Daily Million Draw

Daily Million was launched in 2012 and players have received €35 million in prize money since then, with 28 ticket holders hitting the jackpot in Daily Million or Daily Million Plus. Players win prizes starting from €3 for matching three main numbers in the main Daily Million draw, with the odds of banking the €1 million jackpot standing at 1 in 3,262,623. Your overall chance of winning a Daily Million prize is 1 in 28, with the odds shortening to 1 in 14 if you enter Daily Million Plus as well.

A press release from the Irish National Lottery cited the huge success of the game since it started as the reason behind the move to double up the draws. Dublin, Kerry and Mayo were found to be the luckiest Daily Millions counties in figures released in 2015, with an anonymous woman from Balrothery, Dublin the last player to pick up the jackpot on Monday 15th February. She claimed at the time she was considering spending some of her newfound fortune on property, cars and cosmetic surgery.

The Irish Lottery also offers EuroMillions, which boasts a jackpot worth €21 million tonight, and Irish Lotto, in which you could win €7 million on Wednesday. You can buy Irish Lottery tickets online or from authorised retailers across the country.
