The first debut of the Irish Lotto draw was 1988 of the year 16 April. At that time they wanted to replace the "Irish lottery" (Irish Sweepstakes). The main idea of ​​the lotto creators was to provide charitable assistance to Irish foundations, and they planned to invest the proceeds to improve the areas: health care, living conditions, sporting events, arts.

A special gambling law was created and passed in Ireland for the conduct of the draws.. Today the lotto is organized by the "An Post National Lottery Company" under the supervision and regulation of the Minister of State for Finance.

The plan was to hold a lottery every Saturday with a matrix 6 of 36. But in 1990 introduced an extra game every Wednesday.

Later, Stefan Klintsevich, together with a syndicate from Dublin, discovered a flaw in the system. The ticket price was too low and even after buying all the ballots the person remained in profit. After that, the matrix was changed to 6 of 39.

In winter 2006 the creators decided to increase lotto ticket sales and the jackpot amount. Therefore, according to the innovations, the player had now to guess 6 numbers from 45. AND 3 september 2015 the rules have changed again and remain unchanged to this day (now you need to guess 6 numbers from 47).
