Check those Raffle numbers! 94 players nationwide win €11,138 each in Lotto Plus Raffle

An online Lotto player in Kerry had a Saturday night to remember after matching five numbers and the bonus to win an incredible €161,300 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 Kerry ticket holder. The online winner should make contact with the prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.

The winning numbers for Saturday’s (23rd April) Lotto draw were: 06, 15, 18, 35, 43, 47 and the bonus was 26.

Saturday night’s Lotto draw marked the third Lotto Plus Raffle promotion of the year which saw 94 players get a massive boost to their winnings as the National Lottery topped up the Lotto Plus Raffle with an additional €1 million. The Lotto Plus Raffle typically sees between 80 and 120 winners of €500 in every draw. Last night, there were 94 Raffle winners which meant the boosted prize fund divided out to a prize of €11,138 for each Raffle winner.

The winning Lotto Plus Raffle number was: 3063

The Lotto Plus Raffle winners are advised to sign the back of their tickets and check www.lottery.ie for details of their nearest An Post Prize Claim Centre where prizes up to €14,999 can be claimed. Alternatively, they can contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie. Online players will receive details of the process for claiming their prizes.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “Last night’s draw proved to be a big one for Lotto players all over the country. An online player in Kerry became the biggest winner of the night after matching five numbers and the bonus to win an incredible €161,300 while 94 players shared a boosted prize fund due to the additional €1 million in the Lotto Plus Raffle prize fund. Instead of receiving €500 as is the typical prize for the Lotto Plus Raffle, each of these winners will now go on to claim €11,138 each.”

“While there was no winner of Saturday night’s €6,675,267 jackpot, 102,000 players nationwide won prizes across the Lotto and Lotto Plus draws. Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot is now set to roll towards an estimated €7 million.”

In total more than €6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 34 years ago.
