The National Lottery continue to appeal to Lotto players to purchase tickets early ahead of tonight’s bumper Lotto draw
A Daily Million player in Westmeath will be celebrating this weekend after winning the top prize of €1 million in Friday night’s 9pm draw. The winning store where the Normal Play ticket was purchased will be revealed in the coming days.
The winning numbers for last night’s (Friday 5th November) draw were: 05, 06, 14, 15, 19, 23 and the bonus was 25.
The lucky Westmeath winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket, which is now worth €1 million, and keep it in a safe place. The winner should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email email@example.com and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.
Daily Million draws take place twice a day, seven days a week at 2pm and 9pm and costs just €1 per play.
Meanwhile, Lotto players will have even bigger prizes to play for in tonight’s draw as the National Lottery has confirmed that it will be adding an additional €1 million to the Lotto Plus Raffle prize fund. Winners of the Lotto Plus Raffle typically win €500 in every draw but in tonight’s draw, players are set for a boost to their winnings. By topping up the raffle prize fund by €1 million, each winner will instead claim an equal share of the €1 million amount in addition to the €500 prize.
In the main Lotto draw, Lotto players are also set to see a boost to a lower prize tier due to the jackpot remaining capped at €19,060,800. As the jackpot is capped, no additional funds will be added to the jackpot until it is won. The funds that would usually be added to the jackpot will instead continue to flow down to the next prize tier at which there is a winner, as has happened in each of the draws since Saturday 2nd October.
The National Lottery are continuing to appeal to players dreaming of winning a share of the guaranteed to be won €1 million Lotto Raffle prize as well as becoming the next Lotto jackpot winner to purchase their tickets early ahead of the cut-off time for ticket sales at 7.45pm this evening.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “A Daily Million player in Westmeath had quite the start to their weekend by becoming the Lake County’s newest millionaire after winning the top prize of €1 million in Friday night’s 9pm draw. We will be revealing the location of the winning store in the coming days and in the meantime, we would advise the winning ticket holder to sign the back of their ticket and to keep it in a safe place. They should make contact with our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.”
“Tonight’s Lotto draw is set to see even more big winners with the capped €19.06 million jackpot and the guaranteed to be won €1 million Lotto Plus Raffle. Due to the capped Lotto jackpot, the additional funds that would have usually gone to the jackpot will continue to flow down to the next prize tier with a winner, as we have seen in each of the draws since Saturday 2nd October. As well as the boosted prize fund to a lower tier, tonight’s draw will mark our fifth Lotto Plus Raffle promotion of 2021. With players all over the country eager to become the next Lotto jackpot winner as the largest amount ever seen in the game remains up for grabs, we are encouraging our players to purchase their tickets early ahead of the 7.45pm cut-off time for sales this evening. And remember, tickets can be purchased in-store, through the National Lottery app or at www.lottery.ie.”
