Three local Lotto players win over €26K each

Three lotto tickets worth more than €26,000 each were sold in local newsagents for the New Year's Day draw.

The largest prize in Irish Lotto history remains up for grabs this Wednesday night after last Saturday’s capped €19.06 million draw, held on New Year’s Day continued to roll without a winner.

As the jackpot was capped, this meant that the funds that would usually be added to the jackpot were instead distributed to the next prize tier at which there was a winner. Since there was no winner of the Match 5 + Bonus category, the additional funds were added to the next tier with a winner, which was the Match 5 prize tier.

The prize boost resulted in 28 players in 12 counties all over Ireland winning the cool sum of €26,380 each in the New Year’s Day draw.

The winning numbers from the Saturday 1st January draw were: 04, 05, 21, 24, 25, 41 and the Bonus was 01.

The winning tickets in this region were purchased in Oldcastle Post Office, Co Meath and Supervalu, Beechmount Shopping Centre, Navan, Co Meath

There were also lucky winners in Leavy's, Main Street, Delvin, Co Westmeath.

The other winning tickets were purchased around the country - four in Cork, nine in Dublin, two each in Offaly Kerry, Mayo and Wexford, as well as winners in counties Louth, Wexford, Kilkenny and Limerick.

The National Lottery are appealing to players to check their tickets carefully and have today revealed the selling locations where each of the 28 tickets were purchased.

The 28 largest winners from Saturday night’s draw who all matched five numbers are advised to sign the back of their tickets and to keep them safe. Each of the winners should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prizes.
