    No winner 01 Dec €179 million jackpot. I think I might get a ticket for Friday. I know, I know it will ruin my life if I win, too much for one person, they should split into smaller prizes, the bookies are giving better odds. Still I think it might be worth a go.

    Ruin your life if you win? Are you joking me? It would infinitely make my life better if I had that much money.

    Also, thanks for confirming I didn't win it tonight...

    I did it this evening but didn't win a washer. I usually stick to doing it once a week. I may make an exception this week though.

    I do the same numbers twice, at least if there's any other winners you will get 2/3s. Imagine winning €190m and find out another person has won, don't think I could handle losing €95 million that quick.

    I wouldn't see it as losing €95m, I'd look on it as winning a **** load of money!

    Id be very happy with winning the Lotto plus 2, it would be the equivalent of earnings for the rest of some peoples lives, realistically, you could buy a house or a big chunk of one, work part time, change direction, take a break, if you were sensible with it.
    170 flucking million, you'd have to start disposing of it through any means possible, you would be on a constant holiday to do things,


    Thanks for the reminder

    1 in 139,838,160 odds of winning.

    1 in 10,737,573 odds of winning Irish lotto.

    I laugh at people who waste a fortune on it. Must have the IQ of a goldfish or been dropped on their heads a few times.

    The odd time its ok, could go for months and not play it or might play a few weeks in a row, probably better of at the bookies, but I wouldnt know much about that and odds.
    Madness doing the same numbers because then you are trapped into doing them all the time, or spending a fortune, I just randomly pick some numbers.

    What's a fortune on it? Once a week, twice a week, €20 per ticket? I think that yes, the odds are really small, but if you just win it once, you should never have to do it again. If you did 2 lines with the plus on the Irish and Euro lotto once a week, it costs about €700. That €700 could surely be spent elsewhere, but is also a small amount for the chance to win multiples upon multiples of that. I think its worth it, especially as I used to spend easily waaaaaay more than that on drink in a year. Sometimes in a week!

    Oh I would love to win the Euro millions.

    There's got to be a good value 1001/1 bet that you could lay all that on though? Then tell Bezos to kiss your ass.
    Got to go large when you win the mega jackpots.

    You are correct. The odds a almost impossible.


    But people are renting a dream.....much the same as spending the few quid on an escape which is a film or pornography. It's an escape for a few euros.


    I think I know more people who have been murdered (1) than have won the lottery (0).

    Im not sure how those 2 are connected?
    We know the odds are great to win, but people do sometimes, I dont play often or for much, but if you're not in you have a 100% certainty of winning nothing.

    So this new 200 million number for tonight is new because it’s always been 180 and if that then rolls over the jackpot I think lasts for a few draws and it’s split. I wonder why the higher number.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,655 ✭✭✭ buried


    Won 10 euros the last two draws. Getting closer. If I win tonight, big party up on one of the offshore islands for everybody here once this hoordemic is over, copious amounts of everything for everybody

    It was €190 million max before. Now it can go as high as €250 million.

    In addition, the current Jackpot cap of €190 million will be raised to €200 million and increasing up to a maximum of €250 million using a new cap mechanism. Once the €200 million jackpot is won, the cap for the next cycle will be increased by €10 million to €210 million. The same mechanism will be applied up to a €250 million new maximum cap.

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,211 ✭✭✭✭ dxhound2005


    No winner of the €200 million. The most anyone in Ireland won was €132.
