In this article, we answer the question, how much do you win for 3 numbers on Irish lottery at William Hill? Let’s find out.
Profits depend on your bets and stake
There are so many different ways to bet on the Irish lottery at William Hill that it’s difficult to give a straight answer to this question. When picking three numbers, you can place singles, doubles, trebles, patent and a Trixie.
The most straightforward way to bet three numbers on the Irish lottery is to place a treble. With this wager, if all three of your numbers are drawn, then your bet is a winner, and you land the fixed odds multiplied by your stake. If one or more of your numbers fails to drop on the draw, then your entire bet is a loser. It’s worth knowing there are two draws to bet on, the six-number draw and the seven number draw. The main difference is the bonus ball. You can increase your chances of winning by playing the seven-ball draw, but the odds are greater when gambling on the six-number draw.
For a treble bet on the Irish lottery, William Hill pays fixed odds of 375/1 for the seven-number draw and 700/1 for the six-number draw.
Below is an example of an Irish lottery bet.
- 6 – 8 – 10
- Irish Lottery six-ball draw
- £2 treble
If all three of your numbers are drawn – excluding the bonus ball – you will receive a pay-out of £752. Your bet is a loser if one, two or all three of your numbers aren’t drawn. This is an all or nothing type bet, so some bettors like to give themselves a safety net by backing a multiple such as doubles and a treble. This is three separate bets – two doubles and the treble – so you must multiply your stake by three. A £2 stake will be £6. It may cost you more, but this bet improves your chances of landing a profit as you need just two of the three numbers to bag a return.
