The newest millionaire in Ireland hails from Co Meath, as there is a lucky player who has managed to land the jackpot in the Irish Lotto drawing on Saturday, March 18th, 2023, worth €3.9 million.
The National Lottery revealed the location of the winning ticket and called upon all players in the county to check their tickets to figure out if they are the lucky punter.
The latest Irish Lotto drawing was held on Saturday night and the winning numbers in the said drawing were 05, 09, 11, 13, 24, 27 and 41 was the bonus ball.
One lucky punter certainly has a reason to celebrate after the draw because they were able to match all the five main numbers as well as the bonus numbers that helped them win the jackpot worth €3,987,540.
The National Lottery revealed that the winning ticket had been sold in Co Meath, but it has not yet released the name and precise location of the shop from where the ticket was purchased.
It is set to reveal these details in the next few days. This winner has now become the 11th lottery millionaire in Ireland in this year so far.
Another big win
However, it should be noted that the jackpot winner from Meath was not the only one who landed the prize in Saturday night’s drawing.
There were a total of 93,000 players who landed prizes throughout the country. There was another lucky player who landed a big prize worth €180,041.
Hailing from Dublin, the lucky punter was able to match the five main numbers and also the bonus number to win the prize.
The winning ticket was a Quick Pick that had been purchased on Thursday, March 16th, 2023 from the Dunnes Stores in Blackrock.
There were also 83 lucky players who were able to land a prize of €12,548 each in Saturday night’s drawing of the Irish Lotto because of the Lotto Plus Raffle. 8623 was the winning Raffle number.
The Lotto Plus 1 draw had a grand prize of €1 million and the winning numbers for the draw were 06, 08, 13, 15, 24 and 30, while 37 was the bonus number.
Even though none of the players were able to win the jackpot in this drawing, there were two players who were able to match five numbers as well as the bonus number to win a prize of €5,000 each.
Since there were so many big winners in Saturday night’s drawing, the National Lottery has urged all players to take a look at their tickets to see if they are one of the lucky ones.
A spokesperson said that all players from Dublin and Meath should double check their tickets and come forward to claim their prize.
