One lucky Lotto player took home over €111,000 in the National Lottery on Saturday, but the victory was bittersweet as they were just one digits away from taking the €9316,658 grand prize.
The lucky ticket was purchased in Howth, in the northern county of Dublin, and the National Lottery urges anyone who has bought a ticket in the coastal city to check their numbers carefully.
The Dublin winner matches five numbers and the bonus is to win €111,461 in the Saturday night draw.
The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased Friday, August 6, at the Centra Store on Main Street in Howth, Co Dublin.
The winning numbers for last night’s lotto draw were: 14, 15, 29, 34, 41, 46 and the bonus is 9.
Last night’s Lotto win marked the second National Lottery win for Dublin players in two days. On Friday night, a EuroMillions player in Crumlin took home the first prize of €500,000 in the EuroMillions Plus raffle after buying a winning Quick Pick ticket at the Spar Shop on Clogher Road in Crumlin, Dublin 12.
With no grand prize winner last night of €9,316,658, the Lotto jackpot on Wednesday night is now set to reach an estimated €10 million.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “It was definitely a lucky weekend for National Lottery players in Dublin. Last night, we saw a Howth lotto player come close to winning the massive jackpot of €9,316,658 after matching five numbers and the bonus of winning €111,461. This was not It is the only win in the National Lottery in Dublin this weekend – that surprise win on Saturday night followed the €500,000 EuroMillions Plus grand prix that a player earned at Crumlin the night before.
“We advise the biggest winners of the National Lottery of the past two days to sign the back of their tickets and call the Prize Claims team at 1800666222 or email the prizes.”
