On 18th February, the Irish Sun reported that the operator of the Irish National Lottery is pushing Government to outlaw ‘parasitic activities’ of unregulated, offshore companies who offer odds on outcome of draw.  While they are primarily worried about online activities, bookie shops face being impacted by any legislation — in a similar fashion as has applied across the water in Britain.  This comes after the growth in online businesses — such as Lottoland, MyLotto 24 and MultiLotto — which offer people the chance to wager on the outcomes of draws.

Unlike the national game, these companies don’t have to make a donation to sports clubs or charities
