Lottery fever continues
to grip the country as someone in Ireland woke up on
Sunday morning a whopping €10,288,699 richer after
hitting it lucky on Saturday night’s mega Lotto
The sky high jackpot win comes the same week a large
family syndicate from North Dublin scooped a
mind-blowing €175 million on the EuroMillions game.
The National Lottery appealed to all of its players
across the country to check their tickets to see if
they have become the 21st Lotto player in the
history of Lotto to win over €10 million.
The winning numbers are: 3, 19, 21, 29, 31, 35 and
bonus number is 22.
A National Lottery spokesperson said it hopes to
reveal the name of the winning store soon. “With a
jackpot win of this amount we need a little time to
inform the shop owner and to give the winner time
and space to let this huge win sink in.“
This morning National Lottery CEO, Dermot Griffin,
said “This has been an extraordinary week in the 32
year life of the National Lottery. We had our
highest ever jackpot prize win with a family
syndicate winning an incredible €175 million on
EuroMillions. Now, just days later, we have a lucky
Lotto player who has won this amazing €10.2 million
