Cork Lotto player just one number away from scooping €6,123,735 jackpot

Saturday night’s Lotto jackpot rolls to €6.5 million (est)

Rebel county Lotto players are today being urged to check their tickets carefully after one lucky player in the Kanturk area came within one number of the €6,123,735 jackpot on offer in last night’s draw. The Cork ticket holder matched five numbers and the bonus to win €99,638 in the midweek draw.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on the day of the draw at O’Riordan’s Filling Station in Lower Bluepool, Kanturk.

The winning numbers for last night’s (Wednesday 14th July) Lotto draw were: 03, 09, 11, 27, 29, 47 and the bonus was 34.

The winning ticket holder is advised to sign the back of their ticket and to contact the prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.

Shaun O’Riordan, who owns the family-run store along with his sister Mardy, was delighted for the Wednesday winner: “We have lots of local customers so it’s great to think that someone in the town might have won over €99,000. We have a team of 16 working here so there’s already a great buzz around the place – I imagine this will grow even more as customers come in throughout the day to check their tickets as the news spreads. We’re all over the moon for the lucky winner – now let’s hope we can have a repeat of this on Saturday night and sell another winning ticket!”

While there was no winner of the €6,123,735 Lotto jackpot in last night’s draw, over 82,000 players won prizes across the Lotto and Lotto Plus draws. Saturday night’s (17th July) Lotto jackpot is now set to roll to an estimated €6.5 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 34 years ago. In 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
