ONE Lotto player from Ennis is €457,080 richer following Saturday night’s draw.
Saturday’s record breaking €19.06 million jackpot draw continued to roll without a winner. It is the seventeenth 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. The winning numbers in Saturday’s (27th November) draw were: 01, 05, 15, 23, 39, 47 and the bonus was: 30.
Over 166,000 players across Ireland won prizes in Saturday night’s Lotto and Lotto Plus games including one from Clare who shared the Match5+ Bonus prize pool worth €914,160 with a Donegal individual.
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.
Lotto players in Ennis in Co. Clare and Ballyshannon in Co. Donegal have been urged by National Lottery to check their tickets carefully after both players matched five numbers and the bonus in last night’s draw to win €457,080 each.
The player in Ennis purchased their winning Quick Pick ticket on the day of the draw at the Tesco store in Ennis Shopping Centre while the Donegal winner picked their own numbers on a Normal Play selection on Thursday 25th November at Kernan’s Spar store in Ballyshannon in Co. Donegal.
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.
