The winning numbers drawn were 12, 17, 24, 44, and 48. 

There was one winner of tonight's EuroMillions jackpot worth a staggering €220m, with the winning ticket being sold in France.

In Ireland, more than 98,000 players won prizes in the main draw and Plus games, including one Match 5 winner scooping almost €34,000.

The winning numbers drawn were 12, 17, 24, 44, and 48. 

There was no winner of the Plus top prize, but 10 winners are taking home €5,000 in the Ireland only raffle.

On Saturday, the National Lottery is marking its fifth consecutive draw where the jackpot has remained capped at €19,060,800.

Over the past few weeks, the funds that would normally go to the jackpot have been distributed to the next prize tier at which there was a winner.

Players are reminded that the deadline for National Lottery ticket sales is at 7.45pm on Saturday evening are reminded to buy their stubs as early as they can.

A National Lottery spokesperson said the "stakes are high for players dreaming big" this weekend.

“Could this be a truly record-breaking weekend for National Lottery players?" they said.

"Ahead of both draws, we are appealing to both EuroMillions and Lotto players to purchase their tickets early and to avoid queues where possible if purchasing in retail.”
