A registered Player may play a “Try for Free” game for notional prizes by selecting the “Try” link in the Game Play Window.
In order to play a National Lottery interactive Game, a Player must first register on-line from a link on www.lottery.ie in accordance with the PLI Terms and Conditions.

The Player is required to log in to the Interactive System by entering a User ID and Password (created during the Player’s original on-line registration process) to gain access to this Game.
When the Player has logged in to the Interactive System a choice of Games will appear on the instant win game lobby. The Player chooses the “Instant Lotto Digital” Game by clicking on the “Play” link on the Game Play Window.
The Player is then shown a brief “How to Play” synopsis of the Game and is invited to ‘Play Now’ or ‘Try’.
When the Player chooses ‘Play Now’ he is then shown the price of playing that Game and current Wallet balance, at which point the Player is invited to ‘Play Now’.
When the Player opens the Game the Interactive System checks to ensure that the Player has sufficient Unutilised Funds to complete the transaction. The cost of the Play is deducted from the Wallet balance and the amended Wallet balance is displayed.
The Game then connects to the Interactive System which randomly selects a Play which may yield a Prize from one of the Prize Tiers for this Game. The result for a Play is randomly determined by the Interactive System. The Player’s interaction with the Game does not impact on the result.
The opening screen is displayed along with a ‘Settings’ button (cog symbol – on the right hand side) which will open to display two further buttons: the Sound button and the “i” button which contains the synopsis of how to play the Game.
When the Player selects the ‘PLAY NOW’ button an interactive graphic is presented to the Player on the game Play Window. The Player is prompted to select six unique numbers of their choice between 1 and 47. Alternatively the Player can select ‘QUICK PICK’ which will generate these numbers automatically.
Once the numbers have been selected/revealed, the Player is prompted to click the ‘GO TO THE DRAW’ button. The game then transitions to the ‘Draw’ screen where the following game elements are presented on screen;
Prize Table - Containing a total of ten (10) rows with each requiring a defined number of matching numbers (with or without a Bonus Ball match) to win the associated prize.
Draw Machine - Containing forty seven (47) Balls (numbered 1 to 47 inclusive) at the start of the game.

The Player then clicks the ‘START THE DRAW’ button to commence the Instant Lotto Digital Draw.
Six (6) main balls will be drawn first, followed by one (1) Bonus Ball.
The Player must match ‘YOUR NUMBERS’ to the ‘DRAWN BALLS’. If the Player completes the required match criteria listed in the prize table the Player wins the associated prize.
Once the game ends a message indicating the result will appear:

The Player is required to acknowledge this message by clicking the FINISH button. The Game then ends and the Player is shown the game confirmation screen.
