Gambling on lotteries has been around for a very long time in one form or another and national lotteries such as those from Germany and Spain and even our own Irish Lottery are hardly recent innovations but with the advent of online gambling, lottery gambling has taken on a new meaning. The important thing to remember about online lottery gambling is that you are not actually participating in the lottery itself; by this we mean that prizes in a lottery will normally depend on how many winners there are and if there are no winners then the prize pool will roll over to the next draw which is how we get such enormous winnings in the Euro Millions and others. In online lottery gambling you are gambling at what we refer to as fixed odds for a certain number of numbers coming up but of course the actual lottery draw is what decides which are the winning numbers. The other major difference is that you can gamble for any stake you like within the limits stated whereas in an actual lottery all you can do is buy a ticket at a fixed price. As the lotteries are all played at fixed times of the day or week you will have to wait until that draw is made to know whether you have won or not. Several online gambling operators have a lottery section but we have found the most choice and best odds at Paddy Power, Ladbrokes and Bet365; as you cannot actually participate in lotteries around the world, online lottery gambling is the next best thing and you can be sure that the gambling operator has no influence over the result.
