Two Tickets Win Irish Lottery Jackpot

Two Tickets Win Irish Lottery Jackpot

On Saturday night many Irish Lottery players were hoping to strike lucky and win the top prize to become the first jackpot winners in this lottery for May 2011. This was the case as the results from Saturday’s draw show that two tickets matched the numbers drawn to win the Irish Lottery jackpot that was worth just over €5.3 million. This jackpot win by these ticket holders means that each ticket took home €2,688,982.

The Irish Lottery results from Saturday’s draw if you haven’t seen them already are 6, 9, 21, 31, 33, 42 and the Bonus Ball was 11. Although there were two jackpot winners there were no ticket holders who matched five numbers along with the Bonus Ball to win the second tier Irish Lottery prize that is always worth €25,000. There were 52 players that matched five numbers to win €1,610 and then over 41,000 players that matched three numbers to win the smallest Irish Lottery prize that was worth €5.

As the Irish Lottery jackpot was won on Saturday night it means that the Wednesday jackpot available to win is estimated at €2 million. There was just one Irish Lottery jackpot win last month, therefore it will be interesting to see if this month can surpass that total and produce more than one top prize win.

If you want to become the next jackpot winner for May 2012 make sure you have your tickets ready as you never know, you could match the Irish Lottery results and win the top prize.
