The Laois winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it safe.

Daily Million draws take place twice a day, seven days a week at 2pm and 9pm and costs just €1 per play. 

Meanwhile, with excitement growing in the lead up to tonight’s €230 million EuroMillions draw, the National Lottery is continuing to encourage players hoping to win big in the Tuesday night draw to purchase their tickets early ahead of the 7.30pm cut-off time for sales this evening. Tickets can be purchased in-store, through the National Lottery app or at www.lottery.ie

Since reaching the largest amount ever seen in a European lottery in Friday night’s draw, the jackpot will now remain capped at €230 million for up to a further four draws, with the additional funds that would have gone to the jackpot now flowing down to the next prize tier with a winner. If the jackpot is still not won after the fifth draw at the cap, the full value of the jackpot will flow down to the next tier with a prize winner.  

The National Lottery is predicting that tonight’s draw will see an estimated €21 million flow down to the next prize tier which means that multiple players could potentially become millionaires.  

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 2021 alone, €289 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
