A further 28,879 players won prizes ranging from €8 for matching three main numbers to €116 for matching four main numbers and the Bonus Ball, while there will be 18,839 ticket holders hoping that their luck holds a little longer as they each collect a €3 scratch card after matching two main numbers and the Bonus Ball.
It proved to be a prosperous evening away from the main draw, as the Lotto Plus 1 draw produced two winners of €5,000 in the Match 5 + Bonus prize tier, while one fortuitous player from the east of the country stormed to victory by matching all six numbers in the Lotto Plus 2 draw to collect the €250,000 jackpot, becoming the largest prize winner on the night.
