It could be you .... three Donegal players matched five numbers

The largest prize in Irish Lotto history remains up for grabs on Saturday night after Wednesday’s historic €19.06 million draw continued to roll without a winner. 

As Wednesday night’s jackpot was capped, this meant that the funds that would usually be added to the jackpot were instead distributed to the next prize tier at which there was a winner. Since there was no winner of the Match 5 + Bonus category, the additional funds were added to the next tier with a winner which was the Match 5 prize tier. 

The prize boost resulted in 26 players in 13 counties all over Ireland winning the cool sum of €29,345 each. Three of these Match 5 tickets were sold in Donegal.

The National Lottery are appealing to players to check their tickets carefully and have today revealed the selling locations where each of the 26 tickets were purchased. The Donegal winning tickets were bought in EuroSpar, Ramelton; Centra/Topaz, Main Street, Muff; and Atlantic Stores, Ballyliffin.

The winners are advised to sign the back of their tickets and to keep them safe. Each of the winners should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prizes. 

The winning numbers from Wednesday's draw were: 01, 08, 14, 33, 38, 40 and the Bonus was 30. 

Since the €19.06 million jackpot was capped on Saturday, October 2, a total of 209 Lotto players have benefited to the tune of over €15.8 million from the boosted prize funds at the Match 5 + Bonus and Match 5 tiers. The additional funds that would have usually gone to the jackpot have been flowing down to the lower prize tiers in each of the subsequent draws. 

With Lotto fever mounting on the back of recent Match 5 and Match 5 + Bonus winners in Donegal, people are advised to play early ahead of Saturday's draw.
