A National Lottery spokesperson said: “It’s been a big week for National Lottery players across the Lotto and EuroMillions games. Saturday night’s win for a player in Dublin 14 marks the third big win for a player in the Capital in the space of a week. Tuesday night’s EuroMillions Plus draw saw an online Dublin player scoop the top prize of €500,000 while a Lotto player who purchased their ticket for Wednesday’s draw at the Spar store at 13 South Circular Road in Dublin 8 shared the midweek jackpot to win a staggering €3.8 Million. Meanwhile, Saturday’s Galway win is the second win for West of Ireland players in the space of two days after Friday night’s EuroMillions Plus draw saw an online Galway player scoop the €500,000 top prize.”
“We are encouraging all of our Lotto players in Dublin and Galway to check their tickets carefully from Saturday night’s draw as two players now have tickets worth €24,224 each. Both players should sign the back of their tickets and make contact with our prize claims team.”
While there was no winner of the €2 Million Lotto Jackpot on offer in last night’s draw, over 85,000 players nationwide won prizes across the Lotto and Lotto Plus games. This included winners at the Match 3 prize tier who received an additional amount on top of the usual prize for the category due to a promotion in Saturday night’s draw. The National Lottery added €100,000 to that particular prize tier for the 7th October draw which was divided amongst all winners at that category. This resulted in 13,983 players winning €18 each at the Match 3 prize tier.
Wednesday’s Lotto Jackpot is now set to roll towards an estimated €2.5 Million.
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.
