TWO Dublin Lotto players share €7,734,054 Lotto Jackpot in Wednesday’s draw
Online player in Dublin schedules their way to a midweek €581,131 win
It was a Wednesday to remember for Dublin Lotto players with THREE players winning staggering amounts in the midweek draw.
Two players in the capital became the biggest winners of the night after sharing the €7,734,054 jackpot on offer to scoop a life-changing €3,867,027 each. Ireland’s two newest Millionaires have now taken the titles of 10th and 11th Lotto jackpot winners of 2023.
The National Lottery have confirmed that the winning store locations will be announced tomorrow, Friday 6th October.
The winning numbers in the Wednesday 4th October draw were: 01, 06, 08, 12, 13, 16 and the bonus was 35.
Meanwhile, an online player in Dublin was also celebrating after matching five numbers and the bonus to win €581,131 in last night’s draw. The online player scooped their win after purchasing their ticket with the Scheduled Play service in the National Lottery app. The Match 5+Bonus win marks the largest win to date using the service.
With Scheduled Play, players can set up continuous play for 3, 6 or 12 months, and receive notifications of every draw in advance. This service is designed to simplify lottery play and ensure that players never miss a draw.
One of the key benefits of Scheduled Play is that players can opt out easily at any time. Additionally, players get notifications of every draw in advance, which is something many players want as they often simply forget to play. Scheduled Play is not pre-play or pre-paid - players only pay when they play, and not in advance.
Scheduled Play also allows players to budget and to decide what they want to spend on their lottery play on a weekly basis. This is a significant player protection measure, as it ensures that players are in control of their spending and can enjoy National Lottery games without playing more than they had planned.
The National Lottery has confirmed that a notification to the user’s online account and a separate email has now been sent to the lucky Dublin ticket holder.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “What a night for Lotto players in Dublin with not one, not two but THREE players winning huge amounts in Wednesday night’s draw. Two players became overnight Millionaires after sharing the jackpot to win €3,867,027 each. The two biggest winners of the night have been added to our roll call of Jackpot winners for the year to date at the 10th and 11th spots. We will be announcing where the winning tickets were purchased tomorrow but in the meantime, we are urging all of our Dublin players to carefully check their tickets today as two players now have tickets worth over €3.8 Million each. And they weren’t the only Dublin players to win big in the midweek draw. An online player scooped the Match 5 + Bonus prize worth an astonishing €581,131 after purchasing their ticket using the Scheduled Play feature in the National Lottery app.”
“All three winners are advised to sign the back of their tickets and to keep them safe. They should make contact with our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email email@example.com and arrangements will be made for the jackpot winners to collect their life-changing amounts.”
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 36 years ago. In 2022 alone, €259 Million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
