Someone in the country has woken up this morning €10 million richer as lottery fever continues to grip the country.
A whopping €10,288,699 was one by one lucky Irish player in last night’s Lotto Draw.
The jackpot win comes the same week a large family syndicate from North Dublin scooped €175 million in the EuroMillions.
The National Lottery has appealed to all of its players across the country to check their tickets to see if they have become the 21st Lotto player in the history of Lotto to win over €10 million
The winning numbers are: 3, 19, 21, 29, 31, 35 and bonus number is 22.
A National Lottery spokesperson said it hopes to reveal the name of the winning store in the next couple of days.
This jackpot was close to being shared as another Limerick Lotto player fell one number short, matching five numbers and the bonus ball.
This lucky player has won €87,874 and bought their ticket at Deerpark Dairies on Davis Street, Limerick City.
This morning National Lottery CEO, Dermot Griffin, said:
“This has been an extraordinary week in the 32-year life of the National Lottery.
Since the Lotto game was launched in 1988, 21 lucky players have won jackpots that exceed €10 million.
The highest Lotto Jackpot in the history of the National Lottery was €18.9 million in Hegarty’s, Staplestown, Co Carlow, in June 2008.
