Lotto player in Dublin celebrates after scooping almost €150,000 in Saturday night draw

Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot heads towards €3.5 million (est)

A Lotto player in the Dublin 15 area had a Saturday to remember after matching five numbers and the bonus in last night’s draw to win an incredible €144,484. The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on Thursday 24th March at the Tom Stanley kiosk in Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, Dublin 15.

Aoife Powell, Manager of the Tom Stanley store, was thrilled to hear that one of their customers was celebrating this weekend: “I am absolutely delighted to hear the news. Being located in the middle of a busy shopping centre, we’re kept busy with a mix of our regulars and of course customers passing through the shopping centre. As soon as the news gets out, I’m sure we’ll see plenty of people checking their tickets. The staff will be thrilled too as soon as they hear. Let’s hope the lucky winner realises soon just how much their ticket is worth!”

The winning numbers for Saturday’s (26th March) Lotto draw were: 01, 04, 05, 27, 36, 45 and the bonus 41.

The Dublin winner, who was the biggest winner in last night’s Lotto draw, is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it safe. The winner should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.  

Saturday night’s Lotto draw saw over 96,000 players nationwide win prizes across the Lotto and Lotto Plus games. As there was no winner of the €3,241,966 jackpot on offer, Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot is now set to roll towards an estimated €3.5 million.

Throughout the month of March, Lotto players in Dublin have enjoyed a number of big wins. Last weekend, the Lotto Plus 1 top prize of €1 million was scooped by a player who purchased their winning ticket at Cleary’s Mace on St. Gabriel’s Road in Clontarf, Dublin 3. Another Dublin player became the third Lotto jackpot winner of the year after winning the life-changing amount of €5.3 million after purchasing their ticket for the 12th March draw at Chapter & Verse on Lower Leeson Street in Dublin 2.  

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 2021 alone, €289 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
