Could it be you? Life changing €8.5m Lotto ticket sold in Kilkenny
One local Lotto player is now a multi-millionaire after scooping a ‘life-altering prize’ of more than €8.5 million in Saturday night’s Lotto jackpot.
And another player in neighbouring county Waterford is €1 million richer after winning the top prize of €1 million in Saturday’s Lotto Plus 1 draw.
The winning numbers for Saturday’s (May 7th) Lotto draw were: 01, 31, 35, 39, 42, 46 and the bonus was 45.
The Lotto Plus 1 draw’s winning numbers were: 03, 10, 16, 23, 25, 40 and the bonus was 17.
The National Lottery said the locations of the shops where the winning tickets were sold will be revealed in the coming days.
A spokesperson said: “This truly has been a life-changing weekend for not one but two Lotto players in neighbouring counties who have both now become Ireland’s newest Lotto millionaires.
“We are advising all of our players in Kilkenny and Waterford to check their tickets carefully today as two players now have tickets worth the life-changing amounts of €8,508,720 and €1 million.”
Saturday’s draw saw more than 116,000 players win prizes across the Lotto and Lotto Plus games, including a Dublin player who won €107,156 after matching five numbers and the bonus in the main draw.
The spokesperson added: “If you purchased your [Quick Pick] ticket on Friday, 6th May, at Tesco Park Point in Dun Laoghaire, we are advising you to check your ticket as soon as possible.”
Each of the biggest winners from Saturday night’s draw are advised to sign the back of their tickets and to keep them safe.
