€10 Million Jackpot for Irish Lotto Players
Updated: Wednesday 9th April 2014
We don’t often talk about the Irish Lotto game here because we tend to be busy enough bringing you news about the UK Lotto and EuroMillions games, but today we’re making a notable exception, and that’s because the next Irish Lotto jackpot this Saturday 26 January is expected to be worth around €10 million. That’s a massive amount of money for a game where every line of numbers entered has a 1 in 8,145,060 chance of winning the top prize, and since UK lottery players can buy tickets for the game online it makes sense to bring this significant jackpot to your attention!
Because the odds of winning the jackpot in the Irish Lotto game are so attractive when compared with many other games, the top prize doesn’t tend to reach the dizzy heights of €10 million on anything approaching a regular basis. Those of you who fancy giving yourself an extra chance of winning a fortune by participating in the next draw can do so by picking any 6 numbers from the range 1 to 45 and visiting this page to buy your tickets online. The results for the game will appear here within minutes of the draw taking place, so let’s hope that the ‘luck of the Irish’ heads your way this Saturday evening.
A trio of players who have already had plenty of luck this week are the owners of three tickets that matched all six main numbers in the midweek Lotto game last night. The Lotto results for Wednesday 23 January were 06, 10, 14, 24, 32 and 41, with the number 29 appearing as the Bonus Ball. The jackpot was worth £2,118,372 by the time the draw took place, so each of the three jackpot winners can now look forward to having an extra £706,124 in the bank.
In addition to the jackpot winners just mentioned, the owners of 274,450 Lotto tickets won a consolation prize of some kind last night. Five tickets matched five of the main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball number to win £130,361 each, and at the third-tier prize level there were 287 tickets that won £1,419 each by matching five main numbers only.
The next Lotto jackpot this Saturday will be worth around £4 million. With another €10 million available in the Irish Lotto game on the same night and a £37 million triple-rollover jackpot up for grabs in the EuroMillions game on Friday, it is clear that we have plenty to get excited about over the next few days.
