Saturday night’s Lotto draw brings two big winners as jackpot remains up for grabs

Westmeath player enjoys boosted prize fund of €1,007,815

Lotto player in Dublin scoops top prize of €250,000 in Lotto Plus 2 draw

This weekend’s Lotto draw marked a bumper night of prizes which saw over 212,000 players win prizes across the Lotto and Lotto Plus draws including two players in Westmeath and Dublin who became the biggest winners of the night.

As no additional funds were added to the capped Lotto jackpot, the funds that would usually go to the jackpot were instead distributed to the next prize tier at which there was a winner and in last night’s draw, this was the Match 5+Bonus category. A Westmeath player enjoyed a boosted prize of €1,007,815 after matching five numbers and the bonus in Saturday night’s Lotto draw. The National Lottery hope to reveal the winning store location on Monday.

The winning numbers for Saturday night’s (18th December) Lotto draw were: 05, 08, 12, 13, 25, 26 and the bonus was 09.

Meanwhile, a player in Dublin won the top prize of €250,000 in last night’s Lotto Plus 2 draw after purchasing their winning ticket at the Centra shop in Greendale Shopping Centre in Kilbarrack, Dublin 5 on the day of the draw.

Store Manager Sarah Trimble shared the excitement in-store this weekend following the news: “We’re a family run store based at the heart of a big community so we are all absolutely thrilled with the news. We have been telling all of our customers to check those tickets carefully today as they could have a ticket worth €250,000 in their pockets. We have quite a large team working here so there’s been a buzz around the place ever since we got the call. We are all over the moon that one of our customers has come into such good news just a few days before Christmas – we wish the winner all the very best with their win!”

The winning numbers in last night’s Lotto Plus 2 draw were: 10, 13, 29, 35, 37, 42 and the bonus was 11.

The two biggest winners from last night’s draw are advised to sign the back of their winning tickets and keep them safe. The Westmeath and Dublin winners should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prizes.
