One form of gambling which is not considered gambling at all by many Irish people is gambling on the lottery and the Irish lotteries are probably some of the best known in the world but online gambling has opened up a whole new world in lottery gambling enabling you to be gambling on lotteries from all over the world without leaving home. There is however a major difference between buying a lottery ticket for the Irish lottery and online lottery gambling and that is the way in which the prize money is calculated; in a regular lottery the prize money for each winner is determined by the number of winners and by the number of participants but online gambling on lotteries is what is termed fixed odds gambling where the odds are published as a multiple of your stake. These odds also vary depending how many numbers are selected and how many winning numbers are achieved but you can also vary your stake so unlike a real lottery where the price of a ticket is fixed in online lottery gambling you can play for whatever stake you like which in a way makes it similar to online keno. What appeals to many Irish gambling people is that the online casino has no control over the winning numbers as those are determined by the actual lottery draw but a corresponding downside is that you have to wait until the draw is made to find out whether you have won or not. Online lottery gambling is available at most of the larger online casinos including Paddy Power casino so if you enjoy gambling on the Irish lottery, get onto your online gambling account and try some of the others from across the globe.
