The Irish Lotto drawing that was held on Wednesday, March 29th, 2023 and it saw a lucky punter from Dublin land a prize of €86,000.
This prompted the National Lottery to issue an appeal to all Irish Lotto players from Dublin to check their tickets to see if they are the lucky winner.
The Wednesday night’s drawing did not see anyone win the jackpot, but there were a total of 59,000 players who were able to take home prizes in the Lotto as well as Lotto Plus draws.
The winning numbers that were drawn in Wednesday night’s main Irish Lotto draw were 12, 14, 32, 37, 40, 44 and 35 was the Bonus number.
The drawing had a staggering jackpot of about €2,746,970, but it was left unclaimed as none of the players were able to match all the numbers needed to win it.
However, there was one lucky player who was able to hit the Match 5 and the bonus number, which allowed them to win a prize of €86,898.
The National Lottery revealed that it was a Quick Pick ticket and it had been bought in Rush from the Day Today store on the day of the draw.
There is no doubt that the win is something that the lucky punter will be celebrating, but they would also be disappointed to know that they were just one correct number away from winning the life-changing jackpot worth €2.7 million.
Since none of the players were able to match all the five numbers as well as the two bonus numbers, the jackpot was unclaimed and will now roll over to the next Irish Lotto drawing.
This is expected to take place on Saturday, April 1st, 2023. Meanwhile, the National Lottery is waiting for the Dublin player to come forward to claim their prize.
They have asked all Irish Lotto players in the Rush area to take a look at their tickets carefully to see if they have won the prize.
The Lotto Plus 1 draw had a jackpot of €1 million and the winning numbers that were drawn were 08, 18, 23, 27, 28, 33 and 16 was the Bonus number.
No one landed the top prize in the Lotto Plus 1 drawing, but one player was able to win €5,000 when they hit the Match 5 and 1 Bonus number.
As for the Lotto Plus 2 drawing, the jackpot stood at €250,000 and the winning numbers drawn were 07, 14, 39, 41, 42, 45 and 40 was the Bonus number.
