National Lottery urges all Millionaire Raffle players to check their tickets after New Year’s Eve draw!

Six players from Clare, Cork, Donegal, Kildare, Louth and Meath win €100,000 each in Millionaire Raffle 


A National Lottery player in Dublin has woken up in 2024 as Ireland’s newest millionaire after scooping the top prize of €1 Million in last night’s Millionaire Raffle draw.  

The winning ticket number which earned the top prize for the Dublin player was 218960. The National Lottery has confirmed that the winning store location will be revealed on Tuesday, 2nd January. 

Last night’s Millionaire Raffle draw was bigger than ever with 8,500 cash prizes up for grabs. As well as the top prize winner of €1 Million, six other players nationwide are certain to be celebrating today after they won the other top tier prizes of €100,000 in the New Year’s Eve draw. 

The winning locations for the six prizes of €100,000 from last night’s Millionaire Raffle were: 

• Daybreak Drumgeely, Drumgeely, Shannon, Co. Clare 

• Friars Road Post Office, Turners Cross, Cork 

• Gala, Moness Burt Speenoge, Lifford, Co. Donegal 

• News 4 U, Glenroyal Shopping Centre, Maynooth, Co. Kildare 

• Applegreen M1 Castlebellingham, Northbound M1 Motorway Services Area, Castlebellingham, Co. Louth 

• Centra Summerhill, Summerhill Court, Summerhill, Co. Meath 

Geoff Scally who owns the Centra Store in Summerhill was delighted to hear the news and shocked to hear that another customer of his Meath store won big in the Millionaire Raffle draw. 

“My phone call from the National Lottery on New Year’s Eve is almost becoming a tradition now! Two years ago, one of our customers won the top prize of €1 Million in the Millionaire Raffle draw and now here we are and another customer has won big in the same draw with €100,000! We are over the moon and what an incredible start to the year for the winner. We have lots of passing trade and locals who come into us daily so we are hoping that the winner checks their ticket soon and realises just how much their ticket is worth. When we sold the €1 Million Millionaire Raffle ticket two years ago, we had a big Lotto win just a few weeks later so we’re wondering if we’ll be getting another call from the National Lottery again soon!”

Other prizes on offer in the New Year’s Eve draw included 15 prizes of €10,000, 45 prizes of €5,000, 302 prizes of €1,000 and 8,131 prizes of €500. The National Lottery are urging all Millionaire Raffle players to check their tickets very carefully today to see if they have gotten 2024 started with a win.
