Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot rolls towards €6 million (est)
Saturday night’s Lotto draw saw 92 players get a massive boost to their winnings as the National Lottery topped up the Lotto Plus Raffle with an additional €1 million. The Lotto Plus Raffle typically sees between 80 and 120 winners of €500 in every draw. Last night, there were 92 Raffle winners which meant the boosted prize fund divided out to a prize of €11,370 for each Raffle winner.
The winning Lotto Plus Raffle number was: 4038
The winning ticket holders are advised to sign the back of their tickets and check www.lottery.ie for details of their nearest An Post Prize Claim Centre where prizes up to €14,999 can be claimed. Alternatively, they can contact the National Lottery claims team on 1800 666 222 or email email@example.com. Online players will receive details of the process for claiming their prizes.
While there was no winner of last night’s €5,758,719 jackpot, over 94,000 players won prizes across the Lotto and Lotto Plus draws. Wednesday night’s (14th July) jackpot will now roll to an estimated €6 million.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “Last night’s draw saw our third Lotto Plus Raffle promotion of the year with 92 lucky winners benefiting from the boosted prize fund. Instead of receiving €500 as is the typical prize for the Lotto Plus Raffle, each of these winners will now claim €11,370 after €1 million was guaranteed to be won in the Raffle for Saturday night.”
The spokesperson added: “As the Lotto jackpot was not won last night, Wednesday night’s jackpot is set to roll to an estimated €6 million. The jackpot has now been rolling since Wednesday 9th June so we are expecting excitement to grow as we get closer to the midweek draw. We are reminding players that the cut-off for ticket sales for the next draw is 7.45pm on Wednesday evening and tickets can be purchased in-store, in-app or on www.lottery.ie.”
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. Since the National Lottery was established 34 years ago, €6 billion has been raised for Good Causes. In 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
