Lotto Plus 2 winner comes forward after Saturday night’s €250,000 win

Lotto players all over Ireland are in with a chance of becoming Ireland’s newest multi-millionaire as tonight’s jackpot looks set to roll towards an astonishing €10 million (estimated).

So far this year, the Lotto jackpot has been won four times by players in Limerick (2), Dublin and Meath. Including the jackpot wins, the game has made six millionaires in 2023 with the Lotto Plus 1 top prize being won twice this year by players in Kerry and Dublin.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “Tonight’s Lotto draw could see a player take the highly coveted title of fifth Lotto jackpot winner of 2023 by winning the second highest amount seen in the game so far this year. In January, we saw a player in Limerick start their year off in style by winning over €11.1 million and just weeks later, a player in Dublin scooped over €3.5 million. An online player in Limerick became the third jackpot winner of the year after winning over €5.6 million in February while a Meath player had a March to remember after taking home over €3.9 million.”

As excitement builds for the highly anticipated draw, players are reminded that tickets can be purchased in-store, through the National Lottery app or at ahead of the 7.45pm cut-off time for ticket sales this evening.

Meanwhile, the Lotto Plus 2 winner who scooped the top prize of €250,000 in Saturday’s draw (27th May) has come forward and arrangements are now being made for them to claim their prize. The winning ticket was purchased at Doherty’s Centra in Moville, Co. Donegal.

Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage, and the Irish Language. In total more than €6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 35 years ago. In 2021 alone, €304 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
