Donegal lotto punters are excited with tonight’s jackpot confirmed as €16.5 million!
It’s one of the biggest top prizes in the jackpot’s history, last reaching a similar amount in 2010.
Results for the €16.5 million Irish Lotto jackpot will be revealed soon after the 8pm draw time.
Since the Lotto game was launched in 1988, only 26 jackpots in excess of €10 million have been won.
Two of those were in Donegal. In May, 2017, two lucky ticket holders from Donegal and Westmeath shared the €12.3 million jackpot on offer.
In June 2014, a couple claimed a massive Lotto jackpot with a ticket they purchased at the American House store in Bundoran.
A potential winner of tonight’s jackpot could find themselves in the Lotto hall of fame with the massive jackpot on offer.
