Each week, a lucky player comes to RTE studios to spin the Dream Maker Wheel for the chance to win between e10,000 and e50,000. This week’s winner was Yvonne Kelly from Kinnegad, who won e18,000.

Each Thursday in National Lottery offices, one hundred 3-star entries are drawn randomly in a preliminary draw that takes place under strict security controls. From these 100 entries, the five players for the following show are drawn and their names are featured on the gameshow.
