The National Lottery has confirmed that it will be adding an additional €1 million to the Lotto Plus Raffle prize fund for this Saturday’s draw (10th July). The Lotto Plus Raffle typically sees between 80 and 120 winners of €500 in every draw but tomorrow night, players are set for a boost in their winnings.
By topping up the raffle prize fund by €1 million, the National Lottery predicts that each winner of tomorrow night’s Lotto Plus Raffle draw will receive between €8,000 - €12,500.
Tomorrow night’s jackpot is now heading towards an estimated €5.5 million.
National Lottery players dreaming of winning the estimated €5.5 million jackpot tomorrow night and a share of the guaranteed to be won €1 million Lotto Raffle prize are reminded that the cut-off for ticket sales is at 7.45pm on Saturday night.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “Tomorrow night’s Lotto draw is set to be a big one for National Lottery players all over the country as it will mark our third Lotto Plus Raffle promotion of the year. The guaranteed to be won €1 million in the Lotto Plus Raffle means that there will be even more big winners than usual. On a normal night, Lotto Plus Raffle winners are guaranteed to win €500 but for this Saturday, we are predicting each winner will receive between €8,000 and €12,500, depending on the number of winners. And of course, let’s not forget the jackpot! If the estimated €5.5 million jackpot is won, we could see a new National Lottery millionaire being made this weekend.”
“We are reminding players who are hoping to be one of the big winners celebrating after tomorrow night’s draw to buy their tickets early either in-store, in-app or on www.lottery.ie ahead of the 7.45pm deadline tomorrow night.”
