    Is it possible to pick four numbers for the Irish lotto and do a Yankee or lucky 15 on them

    Highly unlikely, but never say never. You could ask for a cheeky 15% bonus on a L15 perhaps.

    With all the new balls and no e/w, you'd be doing well just to get three from seven (about 350/1)
    which still returns a much better offering than the regular shop tickets.

    Unless of course you're getting the numbers directly from an Oracle,
    or have access to a quantum entangled multiverse time machine...

    I think it is, it is the same as writing out the bets individually as doubles, trebles etc.

    You would be writing out 6 sets of 2 numbers, 4 sets of 3, and 1 set of 4.

    It is, but often a Lucky15 can attract a bonus payment of around 15%. The OP must be fairly certain of which numbers will be coming out of the machine. Hope it's not a statistical frequency type calculation, doomed to fail.
