Most Irish gambling enthusiasts will have a go at the Irish lottery at some time or another but lottery gambling need not be restricted to buying a ticket in our own lottery as several online casinos offer you the chance to be gambling on lotteries from all over the world as far apart as Hong Kong or New York. Online gambling on lotteries is however not quite the same as buying a ticket as it is known as fixed odds gambling. What this means is that when gambling on our own lottery by buying a ticket the size of the winnings is determined by how many tickets were sold and how many winners there were. Online casinos offering gambling on lotteries will however offer you odds against achieving from 1 to 6 numbers and your winnings are determined by those odds plus of course how much you have staked as unlike a fixed ticket price you can stake more or less per line. The odds will depend on which lottery you are gambling on as some have different numbers drawn but the advantage of lottery gambling from around the world is that they are often held on different days and at different times so there are several draws in a week. The results are of course published when the draw has been made so that unlike Keno for example where numbers are produced by an RNG (random number generator) the online casino has absolutely no control over the winning numbers. This form of lottery gambling requires no checking of results as the online casino will automatically credit your account with any winnings and you can even place bets several weeks in advance and wait and see what happens. Lottery gambling is not for everyone but you do not need to restrict yourself to the Irish lottery.
