There was one jackpot winner in tonight’s « must-have » national lottery, which amounted to €19.06 million.
The winning numbers were: 2, 9, 16, 30, 37, 40 and the bonus number is 23.
The exact location of where the winning ticket will be sold has not been announced.
In addition to the winner, there were also 149 five-match bonus winners, who shared nearly €5.5 million.
Prior to the draw, the National Lottery said it had experienced technical difficulties with its website and app due to heavy traffic, and apologized to the players affected.
Tonight’s draw was a must after more than seven months without a jackpot winner.
The jackpot has not been won since June 9, and has been limited to €19.06 million since early October.
Had there been no grand prize winner tonight, the prize would have flowed to the winners at the lower levels, resulting in many more winners.
National Lottery spokesperson Fran Werty said National Lottery retail partners reported « incredibly strong » ticket sales today.
Approval for a draw to be won was given by the National Lottery Organizer this week. Draws to be won will be made in the future to prevent such long reversals from happening again.
In the future, he will guarantee winning jackpots of no more than five draws after reaching the limit.
