Only one Prize Category can be won per Bet, which will be the highest of the available Prize Categories achieved by that Bet.

The Winnings payable in respect of each Winning Bet in Prize Categories 2 to 7 shall be the amount of the Pay Out announced by AnP in respect of a Irish Lotto winning ticket in the respective Prize Category.

The Winnings payable in respect of each Winning Bet in Prize Category 1 will depend on (a) the number of AnP winning tickets in that Prize Category plus the number of Network Winning Bets in the relevant Prize Category (“WINNERS”), and (b) the aggregate Pay Out by AnP in the relevant Prize Category (“FUND”). The Winnings will then be calculated as FUND divided by WINNERS thus:

If AnP has not announced a Pay Out for Category 1 for the relevant draw, the Pay Out payable in respect of each Winning Bet in Category 1 will be calculated on the basis of the official advertised Jackpot amount for that Lotto Draw or the official reported Category 1 prize pool (if any) – the latter taking precedence.

Pay Outs in any particular Prize Category other than the jackpot are calculated on the basis of the amount of aggregate stakes published by AnP as well as the distribution to that Prize Category or on the basis of the value published by AnP for that Prize Category of the relevant draw of the underlying lottery.

In the event of conflict between language translations English shall take precedence.
