Feeling lucky this weekend?

Lotto players throughout Ireland will have an extra reason to celebrate over the August Bank Holiday weekend by sharing in Saturday’s Lotto Plus Raffle prize of a guaranteed to be won €1 million, which is on top of the rolling €5.5 million (estimated) Lotto jackpot already on offer.

By topping up the raffle prize fund by €1 million, the National Lottery predicts that each winner of Saturday’s Lotto Plus Raffle draw will receive between €8,000 and €12,500.

It has been a bumper year so far for Lotto players in Ireland with over €78 million won in prizes.

In 2020, a total of 13 new millionaires have been made through Lotto and Lotto Plus games, while seven separate jackpot winners have claimed over €34 million between them.

The biggest Lotto jackpot win of 2020 was over €9.7 million which was claimed by a Kerry family after they purchased their lucky ticket in Killarney, County Kerry.

There was no winner of Wednesday night’s €4.8 million Lotto jackpot which means that this Saturday’s Lotto jackpot which has been rolling since Saturday, July 4th, is now heading for a life-changing €5.5 million.

A National Lottery spokesperson said that the extra Lotto prize pot of €1 million will be perfect way for players to kick-off the August bank holiday weekend.

Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games goes back to good causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage and the Irish language.

In total more than €5.6 billion has been raised for good causes since the National Lottery was established 32 years ago. In 2019 alone, €250 million was raised for local good causes in communities across Ireland.
