A large superstore located just off the N21 in Newcastlewest has been confirmed as the selling location for Thursday night’s Daily Million top prize win of €1 million. The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on the day of the draw at the Tesco store on the Limerick Road in Newscastlewest, Co. Limerick.

The National Lottery are urging Daily Million players in the Newcastlewest area of Limerick to check their tickets carefully as Ireland’s newest Lotto millionaire has yet to come forward. The winning ticket holder is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it in a safe place. They should contact the prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or firstname.lastname@example.org and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.
Meanwhile, tonight’s Lotto draw will see the jackpot remain capped at the staggering amount of €19,060,800 for a record-breaking ninth time. Since Saturday 2nd October, the jackpot has been capped at the €19.06 million amount which means that no additional funds will be added to the jackpot until it is won. The additional funds that would have usually gone to the jackpot will instead flow down to the next prize tier at which there is a winner. Across the last 8 draws, 102 Lotto players have benefited from the boosted prize funds at the Match 5 + Bonus and Match 5 prize tiers.
Ahead of tonight’s highly-anticipated draw, the National Lottery are continuing to appeal to players dreaming of becoming Ireland’s largest ever Lotto jackpot winner to purchase their tickets early ahead of the Saturday night draw. Lotto tickets can be purchased in-store, through the National Lottery app or at www.lottery.ie ahead of the 7.45pm cut-off time for sales this evening.
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.
