How to play Daily Million

What is Daily Million?

Need something to brighten up your day? Well Daily Million might be the answer! It's a number draw game in which you can pick any six numbers (from 1 to 39). At each draw six random numbers are drawn, along with one bonus number (to make things a bit more exciting - it is Daily after all). The minimum play for Daily Million is one panel per draw. Each panel you play costs €1.

The top prize is €1 million!

Draw days are every day and the draw results can be viewed here every evening.

Play for your chance to be a millionaire for just €1!

How to play Daily Million

There are three main ways to play Daily Million:

1. By choosing your own numbers
This means you mark a playslip with your six selected numbers.

2. By choosing Quick Pick numbers
Quick Pick means your numbers are randomly selected for you (if you can't make up your mind). You can ask your National Lottery Agent (anyone who sells Daily Million) directly for a Quick Pick. Alternatively you can mark the Quick Pick box in the panels on your playslip.

3. By playing online

Playing Online

If you haven't already played Daily Million online, you can register here. It only takes a couple of minutes, and once you've sent us a copy of your driver's licence or passport by freepost (to confirm your age) we'll push the go button on your account;

-Never miss a draw!

-Save & Play your numbers automatically!

-Have your numbers automatically checked!

As with a playslip for a Lottery agent, you need to fill in at least one line on the ticket on your screen. You can either:

  • key in your chosen numbers 1 to 39 or
  • click the QP button for automatic Quick Pick numbers or
  • select Last Ticket (if you've played before) or
  • go to Favourites and choose from your list of saved favourite numbers

Click Yes to play Daily Million Plus, choose the number of Advance Play draws you want your numbers to play in (one to seven) and click Play Now. You'll have the chance to check that your numbers are correct before you press the purchase button, and hey presto! You're in.

We'll send you an email to confirm your purchase, and another if you win. For good measure we'll even email you draw results if you ask us to.

You can check all your purchases at any time using your online account.

Daily Million Advance Play

Daily Million Advance Play means that you can play up to a week's worth of Daily Million draws in advance. Perfect if you're going away or can't get to a shop. Just tick the Advance Play box for one to seven draws, which ever suits best. The ticket you get will show the number of draws you're in and what dates apply.

Advance Play will always include the next Daily Million draw (and Daily Million Plus draws if you decide to play). If you win a prize in any of the draws you can claim it in the usual way. You'll get an exchange ticket to cover any draws left on your Advance Play.

Important stuff

If you've bought your ticket from a National Lottery agent, look after it. It's your only valid record for claiming a prize.

Across each line are the six numbers from the individual panels you filled in, or random ones if you went for a Quick Pick. If you chose numbers instead of a Quick Pick, make sure they're the numbers you wanted before you leave the agent's premises.

Don't get caught for time!
Bear in mind that you won't be able to buy your Daily Million ticket immediately before or while the game is actually on. Terminals are closed at 8:55pm and don't reopen until after the draw at 9:10pm is finished. Any tickets bought for the next draw will be eligible in that draw, right up to terminal closing.

Playing Daily Million Plus?
This gives you an extra chance to win €500,000 for just 50 cent! If you select to play this draw, the words PLUS YES will be printed on your ticket.

You can reuse your Playslip.
If you like to play the same set of numbers every week just keep the playslip somewhere handy. You don't need to complete a fresh one each time you play.
