An online player in Dublin has officially become Ireland’s newest Lotto millionaire after winning the top prize of €1 million in Wednesday night’s Lotto Plus 1 draw. The player scooped the top prize amount after purchasing their ticket online at www.lottery.ie.
The National Lottery has confirmed that a notification to the user’s online account and a separate email has now been sent to the lucky Dublin ticket holder. The online winner should make contact with the prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.
The winning numbers in last night’s (Wednesday 26th January) Lotto Plus 1 draw were: 03, 14, 16, 27, 36, 41 and the bonus was 42.
Meanwhile, Lotto players in Cork are being urged to check their tickets carefully after a Rebel county player matched five numbers and the bonus to win €102,570 in the Wednesday night draw. The Cork player scooped the Match 5+Bonus prize after purchasing their winning ticket at the Spar store at Firgrove service station in Bishopstown, Co. Cork on the day of the draw.
Store owner Colm O’Reilly was delighted to hear that one of his customers was waking up to good news this morning: “We were thrilled to get the news from the National Lottery as this is the biggest prize that we have ever sold. We have a team of twenty working here in-store so there’s a great buzz around the place with the good news. We have already had a few customers in checking their tickets so I imagine as the day goes on and the news travels, we’ll see even more. Let’s hope the winner realizes just how much their ticket is worth soon! We wish the lucky winner all the best with their Wednesday night win.”
The winning numbers for last night’s Lotto draw were: 02, 17, 19, 22, 36, 45 and the bonus was 32.
Wednesday night’s Lotto draw saw over 77,000 players win prizes across the Lotto and Lotto Plus games. As there was no winner of the €2,881,681 jackpot on offer in last night’s draw, Saturday’s jackpot is now set to roll to an estimated €3.5 million.
