Speaking ahead of Saturday’s special Lotto draw, a National Lottery spokesperson said, “To celebrate the upcoming bank holiday weekend, we have added an additional €1 million to the Lotto Plus Raffle prize fund, which will be shared evenly by all Lotto Plus Raffle winners. Each winner can expect to receive an extra €8k - €12.5k, depending on the number of winners. While the entire country braces for a scorching bank holiday weekend, we are reminding all of our players to continue to follow public health guidance and to stay at home whenever possible. If you can’t get to your local store, you can play all of your favourite National Lottery games on the National Lottery App or online at www.lottery.ie.”
