A lucky Lotto player from Donegal won a cool €457,000 in last night’s draw.
They were one of two players, the other from Clare, sharing the Match 5 + Bonus prize pool worth a combined €914,160, or almost €458,000 each.
The Donegal winner picked their own numbers on a Normal Play selection on Thursday 25th November at Kernan’s Spar store in Ballyshannon.
The two biggest winners in last night’s draw are advised to sign the back of their tickets and keep them safe.
The National Lottery is urging players in Ennis in Co. Clare and Ballyshannon to check their tickets carefully after both players matched five numbers and the bonus in last night’s draw.
They should contact the prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email email@example.com and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prizes.
The winning numbers in Saturday’s (27th November) draw were: 01, 05, 15, 23, 39, 47 and the bonus was: 30.
Meanwhile, the most coveted prize in Irish Lotto history remains up for grabs after Saturday night’s record breaking €19.06 million jackpot draw continued to roll without a winner.
Saturday night’s Lotto draw marked the 17th draw at which players had the chance to benefit from additional prize funds rolling down to the next highest tier with a winner from the capped €19.06 million jackpot.
Over 166,000 players across Ireland won prizes in Saturday night’s Lotto and Lotto Plus games.
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.
Since the Lotto jackpot reached €19,060,800 on Wednesday 29th September and the cap came into effect on Saturday 2nd October, 183 Lotto players nationwide have now benefited from the prize roll down to the tune of approximately €15 million.
Across the last 17 Lotto draws, players at the Match 5+Bonus and Match 5 tiers have enjoyed boosted prize funds due to the jackpot cap.Tags:
