    Shop Rules

    Bets are accepted on all Lotto draws until a ‘no more bets’ message is given. Bets accepted after the ‘no more bets’ message will be void unless it can be confirmed that the bet was accepted prior to the draw actually starting.

    Incorrect Bet Instructions

    Unclear Selection - If a number detailed on a betting slip cannot be understood, the number will be treated as void and the odds will only apply to the numbers that can be understood, e.g. if a bet on the ‘3 numbers correct’ section consists of two numbers that can be understood and one number that cannot, it will be settled on the odds which apply to the ‘2 numbers correct’ section.

    Selections Repeated - If a number is repeated it will be ignored and the bet will be settled on the valid numbers chosen at the appropriate odds, e.g. if ten numbers are chosen on a Rapido bet, but the number 23 is repeated, the bet will be settled as a nine number bet (23 will only be included once).

    Error Regarding the Draw - If no draw is specified the bet will be placed on the next available draw. Where a draw is specified by date and/or time and by name, but is placed late, the bet will be void. Where a draw is specified by name, for example “lunchtime draw”, but is placed late, then it will be settled on the next draw matching the specification i.e. the following day’s lunchtime draw, unless cancelled by mutual consent prior to that draw. In the case of Rapido bets where a specific date is not included e.g. if draw 3 is specified on a Rapido slip after draw 3 has taken place, the bet will be settled on the next draw, unless cancelled by mutual consent before another draw has taken place. If the day or draw has not been specified on an Irish Lotto bet, the bet will be settled on the next main draw to take place. If the bet is placed on the 49’s then it will be settled on the next available draw. If the day or draw has not been specified on an Irish Lotto bet, the bet will be settled on the next main draw to take place. If the bet is placed on the 49’s then it will be settled on the next available draw. If the 6 or 7 number draw has not been specified for 49’s or Irish Lotto, the bet will be settled on the 6 number draw.

    Irish Daily Millions - With the introduction of the 2pm Daily Millions draw, in addition to the usual 9pm draw, until further notice we will treat the two draws as completely separate events. Daily Millions bets for the 9pm draw can be placed via quickslips as usual, however for bets to be considered for the 2pm Daily Millions draw the bet must be written on a plain slip clearly stating that the 2pm Daily Millions draw is required. For example, any bets placed late or without clear instruction as to which draw was intended will not rollover from the 2pm draw to the 9pm draw - any rollovers will be from the 2pm draw to the following day's 2pm draw, and from the 9pm draw to the following day's 9pm draw.

    More than One Draw Selected - If more than one draw is specified, the numbers selected will apply to the number of draws in a row, e.g. if four draws are specified on a Rapido bet, the numbers selected will count for the next four Rapido draws to take place after the bet has been accepted.
