a total of 300,000 tickets entered into the draw…20 a ticket…by my mathematics (which can be quite poor at the best of times) i make it 1 in just over 550 tickets will win a prize…1 in 150,000 chance of being a millionaire…bought 2 myself…

2 x 1 Million
5 x 100,000
45 x 10,000
80 x 5000
100 x 1000
300 x 500

The worst of luck to you, you little turd.

Didn’t do this either and I’ve only done the lotto about 5 times ever. It’s just something I never got into the habit of doing.

His auld man won €6 million golfing but oh no that wasn’t enough for young Smyth. Not short of a few bob I’d say as it is. Cunt.


A bit different from across the way with the willy nilly use of the “C” word…tis great.

Thought the same meself when I heard who the fucker was.

Very liberating over here and I haven’t seen a closed thread yet TT.

This is on tonight.

Looks like they won’t be able to sell all 500k tickets.

Wonder if the draw will be pushed back…

I am in tonite anyway Copper pipe, this could be the year

Sounds like a marketing ploy

About 330k sold as of 1pm

last year they had only 350,000 tickets for sale, this year there is 500,000! the prize list is identical to last year, except they will be pulling in an extra 3 million euros via the added 150000 tickets.

Chance of winning compared to last year has been reduced by a fair chunk.

Tickets cost 25 Euro this year too compared to 20 in previous years

Ah that’s a joke so

If there’s only 330k tickets sold surely all the prizes are divided out between them? Are you telling me that there’s 170k tickets that they’re holding themselves in the event of not selling?

I bought a ticket after @Copper_pipe post.


@thedancingbaby funded it :smiley:
