Last Updated: Thursday 8th October 2015, 09:34 am
The Irish Lotto jackpot is set to climb to €3 million for Saturday night’s draw after nobody was able to match all six main numbers on Wednesday 7th October, but it was still a great evening for many players as over 23,000 ticket holders picked up prizes.
The numbers drawn were 8, 12, 13, 28, 34 and 46 with Bonus Ball 44. It was the first time that either ball 46 or 47 had come out of the machine since the pool of numbers was increased from 45 more than a month ago ahead of the draw on 5th September. The prizes won ranged from a €3 scratchcard for matching two main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to €1,842 for matching five main numbers.
Lotto Plus created thousands more winners, including two participants who matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball in Lotto Plus 2 to snap up €2,500 each. The winning Lotto Plus Raffle number was 3550, making 76 lucky players instantly €300 richer. Visit the Irish Lotto Results page for a full breakdown of prizes from Irish Lotto, as well as the winning numbers for Lotto Plus 1 and Lotto Plus 2.
The Irish Lotto jackpot was last won on Wednesday 30th September, when one ticket holder landed €2.9 million. The winning entry was purchased at Smyth’s SuperValu in Ballymahon and a husband and wife have now come forward to claim their money. They have decided to remain anonymous but have released a statement through the Irish National Lottery to express their delight.
“We are so excited and completely overwhelmed by this life-changing win. It’s wonderful to be able to become financially comfortable and put some money aside for our children’s education,” said the couple added. “We’re just thrilled. This has come at the perfect time - we’re old enough to be sensible but still young enough to enjoy it!”
If you want to become the next Irish Lotto jackpot winner you will have to buy a ticket, and you can get involved in Saturday’s game by entering online or popping down to any authorised retailer in Ireland. Best of luck!
