While a Mayo player officially took the title of biggest winner of the night in Saturday’s Lotto draw winning the €19m jackpot, 149 other players from all over Ireland shared an astonishing prize fund of almost €5.5 million at the Match 5+Bonus prize tier, including three in Offaly.

The highly anticipated ‘Will be Won’ event saw 149 winners match five numbers and the bonus to share a prize fund worth almost €5.5 million and they will now go on to claim €36,687 each.

The lucky winners should make contact with the prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prizes.

In total, more than €6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 34 years ago.
