One of the best things about the UK comes from our cosmopolitanism. Nested so close to the EU, our choices in so many aspects of life far outstrip practically any other country on earth.
Whether looking at food, travel, business opportunities, and more, stepping outside of the nationwide doorstep is always a card that UK citizens have in their deck.
The same can be said for entertainment, such as the wide world of betting. This leads us to a common question we’ve seen circulating recently, in how it can be possible to play regional lotteries like the Irish lotto from home. The answer, as it turns out, is simpler than you might think.
Before getting into how players can engage, it’s necessary to first mention that the Irish lotto isn’t locked by region. This means that, no matter where in the world you live, from the UK to beyond, you can easily participate in the game without having to jump through any hoops.
While you’re not likely to see opportunities for playing the lottery down at the corner store, the online world is much more accessible. In simple terms, as long as you have an accepted online payment method, chances are you’ll be able to buy a ticket of such great lotteries like MultiLotto. But first, check the review about this brand.
This system can be bought into with a simple credit card, though major digital payment systems like Neteller and Skrill are also accepted. Simply make sure you have currency available on your system of choice, head to a provider, make an account, buy a ticket, and you’re ready to go.
When it comes to checking possible payouts, winnings again aren’t likely to be shared at most corner stores. Instead, players can visit the same sorts of sites that offer UK Lotto draw results to see if they’ve backed any winning numbers. Websites like this are dedicated to listing the UK lotto results and payouts, but they can also provide numbers and results for the Irish game and the different payout tiers. Updated instantly, such services can streamline betting and payouts into one easy-to-understand location
To Keep in Mind
If you’re new to the online betting space, or just the lottery, there are a couple of factors that you’ll need to keep in mind. The first is that to withdraw any winnings you’re still going to need proof of identity and a valid bank account. Often these methods can require verification data like bank invoices and pictures of photo ID, so be sure to have these handy in case you hit it big.
The second major issue to consider is that of device safety. Though the websites which allow betting are perfectly safe, the same might not be true about your computer or phone. For this reason, we’d recommend regular scans using free malware checkers to ensure your device of choice is free of unwanted eyes. Again, this is simpler than it might seem, so don’t be discouraged.
From this point, you know all you need to get involved. Just like in the physical game, the online method is remarkably easy to use, even for those not technologically inclined. Simply follow the steps carefully, be sure your device is clean, and you’ll be ready to go. Just consider visiting Ireland if you do win, as thanks for what their lotto did for you.
Question Time audience stunned as first-time buyer says mortgage quote DOUBLED
Thursday night’s Question Time audience could be heard audibly gasping after a fellow crowd member revealed that her mortgage quote had doubled followed the recent mini-budget.
Taping in Manchester on 29 September, the current events and politics programme was discussing property when would-be first-time buyer Rabia revealed that her mortgage offer had jumped from an initial amount of 4.5% interest to a shocking 10.5% in just a matter of days.
As you can see in the incredible clip, both the audience and the panel are taken aback at the revelation.
The Greater Manchester resident said she is desperate to know what the government’s plan for mortgages is as following the latest revision, she says she simply cannot afford to put the money down on her first home.
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer weighed in on the social media reaction, quote tweeting the clip from his party’s own account and stating that “the Tories must get back to Parliament and reverse their kamikaze budget” as the current economic mess is being “paid for by working people”.
To make matters worse, Rabia was given no clarification from her lenders, only that they were pulling her offers. Conservative MP and Minister for Local Government, Faith and Communities, Paul Scully had little information to offer her either, simply stating it is a short-term effect and that the market will stabilise.
Scully was subject to an entirely different reaction from the audience as well after his blind attempts to defend Prime Minister Liz Truss and Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng were met with laughter. Conversely, Richard Bacon was met with applause after he labelled the mini-budget “absurd”.
As if the anti-Tory sentiment wasn’t already at a high, the chancellor’s mini-budget – which saw the corporations, bankers and the generally wealthy benefit ahead of the working class – has seen fresh calls for a general election to be held as soon as possible.
Beyond declaring a so-called £2,500 limit on energy bills (which many have warned isn’t a guaranteed cap), there was seemingly very little in the way of policy that
For those still unclear as to what was announced in the divisive mini-budget, here is a quick summary:
Speaking in a speech at the Labour conference in Liverpool on Tuesday, Starmer said that the government “haven’t just failed to fix the roof, they’ve ripped out the foundations, smashed the windows and now they’ve blown the doors off for good measure.
Demands for an immediate general election set to be debated in parliament
A petition demanding an ‘immediate general election’ has now surpassed 100,000 signatures – and is set to be debated in Parliament.
The petition says that the public should be able to ‘decide who should lead us through the unprecedented crises threatening the UK’.
Prime Minsiter Liz Truss and the Conservative party are facing waves of criticism as the cost of living crisis spirals.
Kwasi Kwarteng’s mini-Budget on Friday saw the pound plummet to a record low against the dollar, and 40% of mortgage deals have since been pulled from the market, plunging the property market into chaos too.
Liz Truss was elected as Prime Minister by Conservative MPs only weeks ago, beating Rishi Sunak to the top job on 6 September 2022, but no general election has been held since Boris Johnson was elected in 2019.
Petition organiser Darrin Charlesworth said: “The chaos engulfing the UK government is unprecedented.
“War rages in Ukraine; the Northern Ireland Protocol has further damaged our relationship with Europe; recession looms; the UK itself may cease to exist as Scotland seeks independence.
“This is the greatest set of challenges we have seen in our lifetimes.
