Lotto Plus 2 Produces Three Jackpot Winners in Two Draws

Lotto Plus 2 Produces Three Jackpot Winners in Two Draws

Irish Lotto players are hitting a rich run of form on the supplementary Lotto Plus 2 draw despite no one having scooped the jackpot in the main game since Wednesday 22nd June. There have been three Lotto Plus 2 top prize winners in the last two draws, each banking €250,000 for matching all six main numbers.

Last night’s game saw two winners correctly match the winning Lotto Plus 2 line of 1, 9, 10, 15, 23 and 30, with a further five ticket holders matching five of the main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball 2. Neither Irish Lotto or Lotto Plus 1 saw any winners in their top two tiers on Wednesday 10th August. The fact that all six Lotto Plus 2 main numbers and the Bonus Ball were under 31, and therefore within reach of the large number of players who pick their lines based on memorable dates, could have contributed to last night’s valuable haul. You can see the results and full prize breakdowns for Irish Lotto, Lotto Plus 1 and Lotto Plus 2 at the Results section.

Unlike Irish Lotto, the two Plus games offer fixed prizes that players do not have to share, meaning last night’s lucky jackpot winners will each receive the full €250,000. In Irish Lotto, each prize tier is allocated a set percentage of ticket revenue and the winners in those tiers split the pool equally. This is why prize values vary in Irish Lotto from draw to draw.

Last Saturday’s €250,000 Lotto Plus 2 prize has already been claimed, after a man from Cahir, Co Tipperary picked up a bumper cheque at National Lottery headquarters in Dublin yesterday. The winner promised to split the cash between members of his “close and loving” family. He also admitted he lost his nerve watching the draw on television and turned the set off after the first four balls were dispensed. He was later persuaded to visit a local lottery retailer to check his ticket and discovered he had matched all six numbers to hit the jackpot.

The Irish Lotto jackpot will reach €9.5 million on Saturday night following a run of 14 rollovers and you can get hold of Irish Lotto tickets online through the Tickets page. Good luck!
