Irish Lotto Continues to Raise Money for Good Causes
Last Updated: Wednesday 21st October 2015, 08:49 am
Irish Lotto participants looking forward to the chance to win big prizes in tonight’s draw will also be doing their bit for good causes when they purchase tickets. For every entry sold, money is raised to spend on a wide variety of worthy projects across Ireland.
Since the Irish National Lottery was launched in 1986, €4.5 billion has been generated for a number of charitable and cultural organisations. Recent projects to have benefited from funding are the Earagail Arts Festival and Special Olympics Ireland, which gives people with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in sport in a community environment. Find out more about how Good Causes help to support various groups and individuals throughout the country.
The South Dublin couple who scooped €7.3 million in the Irish Lotto draw on Saturday 19th September have pledged to use some of their winnings to help others, in addition to building an indoor slide for the new home they plan to buy, and you could also decide to do good work for your community if you pick up a big reward on the game.
There is a jackpot of €4.5 million on offer this evening after a fifth rollover in a row on Saturday. The top prize was last won on Saturday 30th September, when a single player landed €2.9 million with a ticket bought at SuperValu Supermarket on Main Street, Ballymahon.
There have still been some magnificent sums of money given away over the last few weeks, including one lucky participant who matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball on Saturday to earn €222,172. View all the recent Irish Lotto Results to see if you might be due a prize, and remember to play tonight to give yourself a chance of winning.
Tickets can be bought online or from authorised retailers across Ireland, and even if your numbers aren’t drawn you will be helping one of the many good causes supported by the lottery. Have fun and good luck!
