Gambling on the lottery is something which many Irish people do without even considering that it is real gambling at all but with the coming of online casinos you need not be restricted to our own lottery and in fact you can gamble on lotteries from around the world from the comfort of your own home. There is of course a major difference between buying a ticket for a lottery and lottery gambling online and that is by buying a ticket you are participating in the lottery where the prize money is determined by the number of people entered and the number of winning tickets but online lottery gambling is what is known as fixed odds gambling where you know your possible winnings before the draw is made. The odds in online lottery gambling are determined by how many numbers you manage to match but also how many numbers you choose to play which makes it in a way very similar to Keno or the other numbers games. The major difference between a Keno game and an online lottery is who chooses the winning numbers; in an online keno game it is a random number generator that chooses the numbers but in an online lottery game it is the numbers drawn in the actual lottery that determines the winning numbers. This has the advantage that it cannot possibly be controlled by the online casino but also the disadvantage that the draws are only at fixed times of the week or day so you need to wait until that draw to find out whether you have won or not. Bet 365 Casino along with Paddy power casino and Ladbrokes casino all have a good selection of online lotteries so if you fancy trying your luck that’s where to be.
