Someone in an Offaly village is a lot richer after latest lotto draw
Someone in Offaly is a lot richer after last Saturday night's National Lottery draw.
24 players across the country, including one here in Offaly, enjoyed a boosted prize fund at the Match 5 prize tier after the January 8 draw.
As the Lotto jackpot remains capped, this means that the funds that would usually be added to the jackpot are instead distributed to the next prize tier at which there is a winner. Since there was no winner of the Match 5 + Bonus category in Saturday’s draw, the additional funds were added to the next tier with a winner which was the Match 5 prize tier.
The 24 biggest winners of the night purchased their tickets in 13 different counties and will now go on to claim €33,181 each after matching five numbers. One of those tickets, now worth €33,181, was sold at Daybreak in Rhode village.
The winning numbers from Saturday, January 8 were: 04, 08, 19, 35, 36, 41 and the bonus was 23.
The National Lottery have urged players to check their tickets carefully and for the 24 winners to sign the back of their tickets and keep them safe. The lucky winners, who purchased their tickets in-store and online, should make contact with the prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email email@example.com and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prizes.
This Wednesday, Lotto players across Ireland will have another chance to play for the highest jackpot ever seen in the history of the game after there was no overall winner of the incredible €19,060,800 on offer in the weekend draw.
