Last night’s draw saw over 116,000 players win prizes across the Lotto and Lotto Plus games which, in addition to the jackpot and Lotto Plus 1 top prize wins, included a Dublin player who matched five numbers and the bonus in the main draw to win an incredible €107,156. The Dublin winner purchased their winning Quick Pick ticket on Friday 6th May at Tesco Park Point in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “This truly has been a life-changing weekend for not one but two Lotto players in neighbouring counties who have both now become Ireland’s newest Lotto millionaires. A Kilkenny player has taken the title of fourth Lotto jackpot winner of the year after last night’s massive €8,508,720 win while a Waterford player won the top prize of €1 million in the Lotto Plus 1 draw. Both wins have meant that overnight, we have seen the total number of National Lottery millionaires for 2022 soar to an incredible total of 18.”
“We are advising all of our players in Kilkenny and Waterford to check their tickets carefully today as two players now have tickets worth the life-changing amounts of €8,508,720 and €1 million. And of course, they’re not the only two players who won big last night! A Dublin player matched five numbers and the bonus in the main draw to win €107,156. If you purchased your ticket on Friday 6th May at Tesco Park Point in Dun Laoghaire, we are advising you to check your ticket as soon as possible.”
