Special Lotto Plus Raffle on 21st September
A special Lotto Plus Raffle draw will take place on the 21st September. An additional €1 million will be added to the raffle’s prize pool, meaning you could win prizes up to 250 times larger than in a regular draw.
The Lotto Plus Raffle is a supplementary raffle draw, included when you opt in to Lotto Plus on your Lotto ticket. A four-digit code is generated for each line of numbers you purchase and the objective is to match one of your codes exactly with the code revealed during a given Lotto draw.
The prize for matching your raffle code is usually a fixed €500. However, on Saturday 21st September, the raffle’s prize pool is being boosted by a further €1 million. With up to 120 people winning a Lotto Plus raffle prize per draw, this means you could be in with a chance of winning up to €13,000!
The announcement is the latest in a long line of special draws and lottery events in Ireland; it comes only weeks after the largest Lotto jackpot in over two years was won in Co. Wicklow, and two months after another seven-figure sum was made available to the public. On Friday 5th July a special Ireland Only Raffle guaranteed that one of ten lucky raffle winners would receive €1 million on top of the usual €5,000 prize.
The last special Lotto Plus Raffle took place on St Patrick’s Day this year and also offered a prize pool boosted by €1 million.
How Can You Take Part in Saturday’s Special Lotto Plus Raffle?
Entry to the Lotto Plus Raffle is included in the €1 price of Lotto Plus, an optional add-on to the regular Lotto game. If you opt in, your Lotto numbers are also entered into two additional draws, Lotto Plus 1 and Lotto Plus 2, which follow the same rules as the main Lotto draw – giving you three times the chance of winning a prize. To take part in the bumper Lotto Plus Raffle, simply purchase an entry to the Saturday’s Lotto draw, and opt in to Lotto Plus.
Lotto draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday, with jackpot prizes that start at €2 million. Ticket sales for the special Lotto draw of Saturday 21st September close at 7:45pm that same evening.
