Your bank holiday could be about to get a whole lot better as National Lottery has revealed the winning locations from Saturday’s draw.
The National Lottery is today appealing to players in Cork and Waterford to check their tickets as the hunt is on for the winners of Saturday’s €8.3 million Lotto Jackpot and Friday’s EuroMillions Draw “Ireland Only Raffle” prize of a cool one million euro.
A National Lottery spokesperson said today it has been a Bank Holiday to remember with two massive wins in the south and south east.
The winning Lotto jackpot ticket was sold in Dunnes Stores in Bishopstown Court Shopping Centre, Bishopstown, Cork, whilst the Ireland Only Raffle ticket was sold in the Aramark shop in University Hospital Waterford.
The winning Lotto numbers are: 3, 4, 5, 19, 26, 43 and Bonus number 24.
And the raffle code from Friday’s Euromillions Draw is 1 DZW 38394
The spokesperson said: “This is one of the highest Lotto jackpots wins this year. The jackpot was rolling since June 20th and the amount raised for Good Causes through Lotto sales during this period is an incredible €10.9 million. Almost 30 cent in every Euro spent on National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes all over Ireland so communities everywhere are winners.”
“To honour all the inspiring work that is being done thanks to Good Causes funding we have launched the first ever National Lottery Good Causes Awards and we will be announcing the County Winners in this competition later this week.”
The National Lottery is advising players to check their numbers and if they have won one of these mega prizes sign the back of the ticket and keep it safe until contact is made with Lotto HQ which opens after the Bank Holiday weekend tomorrow at 9 a.m .
Over the last 30 years there have been 1,744 Lotto jackpot winners from all over Ireland scooping dream prizes totaling over €2.5 billion. Saturday’s win brings to 174 the number of Lotto jackpot wins in County Cork.
Get checking those tickets, folks.
