Irish Lotto Jackpot Reaches €10 Million
The Irish Lotto jackpot looks set to reach the heady heights of around €10 million for the game this Wednesday 28 March after rolling over for the eleventh time in a row last Saturday. The Irish Lotto numbers for the last game, which boasted a jackpot of €9.55 million, were 01, 03, 20, 31, 34 and 38, and the number 33 was drawn as the Bonus Ball. The six main numbers just mentioned weren’t matched by any single entry, so players have the even bigger jackpot of around €10 million to play for in the midweek game. Will that be when the Irish Lotto stops rolling? We’ll soon find out!
There were two winning tickets at the second-tier prize level last Saturday, and each of those matched five main numbers and the Bonus Ball to win a prize of €25,000. 59 tickets won €1,819 each by matching five of the main numbers without the Bonus Ball and another 148 tickets matched four main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win €182 each. At the lower rungs of the consolation prize ladder, 57,338 tickets won a prize of €57, €29 or €5 each for matching four main numbers, three main numbers plus the Bonus Ball or three main numbers only.
Winning any kind of consolation prize is obviously better than winning nothing at all, but we are confident that many of Saturday’s consolation prize winners will now be trying to fare even better this Wednesday, and players who didn’t pick up a prize at the weekend will no doubt want to try even harder! For anyone who fancies including one or more overdue numbers among their selections, we can tell you that the most overdue Irish Lotto numbers right now are 24, 37, 42, 27, 08 and 10.
The Irish Lotto game offers better odds of winning a jackpot than most other lottery games (your odds of landing the jackpot with a single entry are 1 in 8,145,060) so multi-rollover jackpots that reach the €10 million mark aren’t on offer every month of the year by any means. It therefore makes sense to take advantage of these massive jackpot-winning opportunities whenever they come along, and if you’d like to do that this time around you can buy lottery tickets online right now. When you’ve done that, keep your fingers crossed and the biggest Irish Lotto jackpot in months could soon be yours! Good luck!
