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!

Draws take place twice a day, every day at 2pm and 9pm, and the results can be viewed here an hour after each draw.

How to Play Daily Million

There are three main ways to play Daily Million:

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

  3. By choosing Quick Pick numbers
  4. 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.

  5. By playing online

See below for more details on Playing Online.

  • click the QP button for automatic Quick Pick numbers or
  • select My Last Ticket (if you've played before) or
  • go to My Favourite Numbers and choose from your list of saved favourite numbers


Select or deselect 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. You can always 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 7 draws' 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.

If you play before 2pm your ticket will be entered into the 2pm draw, after 2pm you’ll be entered into the draw for 9pm.  Check the ticket to see the draw time.

Daily Million Ticket

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.  Sales close at 2pm and 9pm precisely and don't reopen until 10 minutes after each draw has finished. Any tickets bought for the next draw will be eligible in that draw, right up to terminal closing.

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.
