Just ONE DAY to go until the first EuroDreams draw takes place!
A Lotto player in Limerick had a Saturday night to remember after matching five numbers and the bonus in the main draw to win a staggering €334,197.
The winning numbers in last night’s (Saturday 4th November) Lotto draw were: 08, 24, 29, 37, 41, 42 and the bonus was 22.
The Treaty County player was celebrating after purchasing their winning Quick Pick ticket on the day of the draw at Centra in Northtown Shopping Centre on the Ennis Road.
Shop owner Ger Rodahan was thrilled to hear that one of his customers was waking up to good news this morning: “What a call to get from the National Lottery! There will be great excitement both in the shop and around the town as soon as word gets out that we sold a ticket worth more than €330,000. Most of our customers are locals so it’s wonderful news for the community. For all we know, the winner might not even realise that they have won yet so hopefully they check their ticket soon. This is the biggest prize that we have ever sold so here’s hoping this continues and we might have even more big wins soon,” he said.
The Limerick winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it safe. They should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email email@example.com and arrangements will be made for the winner to collect their prize in Lotto HQ.
Last night’s Lotto draw saw over 79,000 players win prizes across the Lotto and Lotto Plus games. As there was no outright winner of the €4,170,027 jackpot on offer, Wednesday’s jackpot is set to roll towards an estimated €4.5 Million.
Meanwhile, tomorrow night could prove to be truly life-changing for a National Lottery player in Ireland as the first ever EuroDreams draw is set to take place at 8pm.
Tickets went on sale last Monday and since then, excitement has been building for players all over the country as this is the first annuity game of its’ kind ever to be seen in Ireland. Unlike other lottery draw-based games, the annuity top prize, which is worth €7.2 Million, will be paid in monthly tax-free payments of €20,000 spread over 30 years.
Draws will be held every Monday and Thursday with players picking six main numbers from 1-40 and one bonus number (called "Dream" number) from 1-5 to make up their combination.
Tickets for the EuroDreams game are available at usual National Lottery retail agents nationwide, as well as at www.lottery.ie and via the National Lottery App.
Tickets can be purchased before the 7:30pm cut-off time for sales each Monday and Thursday. Similar to the EuroMillions game, draws will take place in Paris, France at approximately 8pm (Irish Time) on draw nights.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “Monday night is set to be a big one for National Lottery players all over the country as the first EuroDreams draw is set to take place in Paris at 8pm Irish time. We have never had a game like this in Ireland ever before. A player in Ireland could potentially start their week off by winning €20,000 every month for 30 years if they match 6 numbers and the Dream number. And even without the Dream number, if a player matches 6 numbers, they could win €2,000 per month for 5 years which would add up to a total of €120,000.”
“Could Monday night prove to be truly life-changing for a player in Ireland? Only time will tell! But for players dreaming of winning big in the new game, don’t forget that the cut-off time for ticket sales is 7:30pm on Monday evening and tickets can be purchased nationwide in-store, online at www.lottery.ie or through the National Lottery app.”
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 36 years ago. In 2022 alone, €259 Million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
