Irish Lotto Jackpots and Rollovers
The minimum jackpot Irish Lotto jackpot is €2 million, but the top prize can grow well above that amount due to rollovers.
The Irish Lotto has a jackpot cap of €18.96 million, although that can rise in the future. When the top prize passes this point it cannot grow any further and remains static until it is won, with excess funds rolling down to the next highest winning prize tier, most likely the Match 5+1 tier. This total will then become the new jackpot cap for future draws.
Irish Lotto Jackpot Cap
Currently, the Irish Lotto jackpot cap is €18.96 million. Once the jackpot reaches or exceeds the cap, no more money will be added to the top prize until it is won.
The funds that would normally go to the jackpot are instead used to boost the prize pool for the next winning tier (likely Match 5 + Bonus Ball).
