Irish Lottery Jackpot Reaches €4.5 Million
The Irish Lotto jackpot has risen to €4.5 million after last night’s draw passed with no players managing to match all six main numbers drawn. While no players took home the top-tier prize in last night’s draw, more than 23,000 ticket holders matched a winning combination to secure a cash prize.
The Irish Lotto numbers from last night’s draw were 2, 7, 34, 37, 41 and 42 with Bonus Ball 32. For the first time in seven draws, one lucky ticket holder matched all five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win the second tier prize of €25,000. Following this, 19 ticket holders matched all five main numbers to win €2,471 and 67 players matched four main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win €176.
The next prize tier saw 1,184 ticket holders win €61 for matching four main numbers while a further 1,671 ticket holders matched three main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win €29. In the seventh and final prize tier, over 20,000 ticket holders took home the set prize of €5 for matching three main numbers.
The last time there was an Irish Lottery jackpot winner was on Saturday 23rd August when the top prize of €3.9 million was won by a player who purchased their ticket in the West. This month has yet to see any player strike it lucky and win the top prize so if you’d like the chance to become the first top-tier winner of September, make sure you participate in Saturday’s draw. Tickets can be purchased online through the Lottery Tickets page or in person from an authorised retailer.
