On Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011, the winning Irish Lotto numbers were 17-21-31-34-35-37, and the Bonus Ball was 24. Going back to last week, the number 24 had been picked two weeks in a row following this drawing.

The Lotto Plus 1 winning numbers were 5-23-24-31-32-44, while the Bonus Ball was 1. The week before, 1 was drawn as a main digit, so this is certainly a number to watch. Lotto Plus 2 winning numbers were 4-7-9-37-39-43, and the Bonus Ball was 2. The number 9 was picked two weeks in a row after this drawing.

Moving to Saturday, August 6th, 2011, winning Irish Lotto numbers were 9-21-26-31-39-42, while the Bonus Ball was 5. Following this drawing, both 21 and 31 have been selected twice in a row. Another interesting thing worth mentioning about this drawing is that two players shared the €2,652,957 jackpot prize (€1,326,478 per player).

The Lotto Plus 1 winning numbers were 7-17-24-25-29-31, and the Bonus Ball was 2. The number 24 has come up in two straight Lotto Plus 1 drawings now. Winning Lotto Plus 2 numbers were 2-18-29-34-36-39, and the Bonus Ball was 3. The number 39 is worth watching next week because it’s been picked two weeks in a row.

The next Irish Lotto, Lotto Plus 1 and Lotto Plus 2 drawings will run on Wednesday, August 10th, 2011. Since the Irish Lotto was won last week, the new jackpot will be set at €2,000,000. The Lotto Plus 1 jackpot will be worth €350,000, and the Lotto Plus 2 jackpot will offer a €250,000 prize.
