Tonight’s Lotto draw promises to see bigger than usual prizes as the National Lottery has confirmed that it will be adding an additional €1 million to the Lotto Plus Raffle prize fund for this weekend’s draw. The Lotto Plus Raffle typically sees between 80 and 120 winners of €500 in every draw but tonight, players are set for a boost in their winnings.
By topping up the raffle prize fund by €1 million, the National Lottery predicts that each winner of tonight’s Lotto Plus Raffle draw will receive between €8,000 - €12,500.
Tonight’s Lotto jackpot is set to roll towards an estimated €3.5 million.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “As well as the estimated €3.5 million jackpot on offer, tonight’s Lotto draw also marks our first Lotto Plus Raffle promotion of the year. The guaranteed to be won €1 million in the Lotto Plus Raffle means that there will be even more big winners than usual. On a normal night, Lotto Plus Raffle winners are guaranteed to win €500 but for tonight’s draw, we are predicting each winner will receive between €8,000 and €12,500, depending on the number of winners. Don’t forget that tickets can be purchased in-store, through the National Lottery app or at www.lottery.ie ahead of the 7.45pm cut-off time for sales this evening.”
