 Almost 30c from every €1 spent on National Lottery games goes back to thousands of incredible Good Causes in communities all over Ireland in the areas of Health, Sport, Arts, Irish Language, Heritage, Children and Youth. We are delighted that National Lottery players have raised an estimated €6 Billion for Good Causes across the country since we began selling our first products back in 1987.
