Online player in Galway scoops €2,475,303 in Saturday night’s (5th June) draw

A lucky online Lotto player in Galway became the third Lotto jackpot winner in the space of two weeks after scooping the €2,475,303 jackpot in last night’s (Saturday 5th June) Lotto draw. 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 ticketholder who is encouraged to get in touch to begin the process of claiming their life-altering prize.

The winning ticket was a multi-draw ticket on which the lucky player selected their own winning numbers to scoop this win of a lifetime.

The winning Lotto numbers for last night’s draw were: 10, 16, 17, 24, 26, 42 and the bonus number was 35.

A National Lottery spokesperson has today appealed to all of its online players, especially in Galway, to log into their accounts or check their emails to see if they have become a multi-millionaire overnight after winning this life-changing jackpot.

“One lucky online player in Galway is waking up today as Ireland’s newest multi-millionaire. The online ticket holder has also brought the number of Lotto jackpot winners over the last three Saturdays to 3, following a Westmeath player who won €6.4 million in the 22nd May draw and a player in Cork who scooped €2.4 million in last weekend’s 29th May draw. We are encouraging all of our online players to check their accounts and emails carefully today and if they are the winner, to make contact with our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or and we can officially begin the prize claims process.”

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 34 years ago. In 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
