Lucky Winner Scoops €5.9 million Irish Lotto Jackpot

One lucky ticket holder has scooped a €5.9 million Irish Lotto jackpot after they matched the six main numbers drawn. The winning ticket for last night’s draw was purchased in South East Ireland and brought an end to a series of rollovers. Eight draws had passed without a winner and excitement grew with each rollover as the jackpot increased in size.

The winning numbers for the Irish Lotto draw on Wednesday 6th August were 7, 11, 24, 32, 33 and 40 with Bonus Ball 38.

Over 33,000 ticket holders took home cash prizes of some kind. One player matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win €25,000 while 34 players matched five main numbers to win €1,574 each. Another 80 ticket holders matched four main numbers plus the Bonus Ball and picked up €168 each. The remaining players won amounts between €5 for matching three numbers and €44 for matching four main numbers. You can view a full breakdown of the prizes by visiting the Results page.

The draw on Saturday 9th August will now reset to a €2 million jackpot. If you’re dreaming of beating the odds and keeping the winning streak going, then make sure that you buy your tickets before sales close at 7:45 PM on Saturday. You can purchase tickets online by visiting the Lottery Tickets tab or in person from an authorised retailer. Good luck!
