Search Begins For €5.4 Million Irish Lotto Jackpot Winner

Irish Lotto players have been urged to check their tickets after a jackpot of €5.4 million was won on Saturday night. The top prize had been growing for seven straight draws since it was last given away on 25th November, and one lucky player was given the perfect Christmas present as they matched all six main numbers.

Winning Irish Lotto Numbers

The winning Irish Lotto numbers on Saturday were 5, 14, 28, 29, 32 and 38, with Bonus Ball 31. Over 42,000 prizes were picked up in total, but the glory went to a single participant and Irish national Lottery officials are now on the lookout for the big winner.

It has been announced that the winning Quick Pick ticket was bought on Friday at Dublin Airport, in the WHSmith shop in the arrivals area of terminal one.

"This was one of the busiest days of the year in arrivals and the ticket could have been bought by somebody coming home for Christmas, by a friend or relative meeting a loved one, or an airport worker," said National Lottery CEO Dermot Griffin. "This is going to be a very special Christmas indeed for that lucky person."

New Year Millionaire

It is shaping up to be an incredible end to the year for Irish National Lottery players. Not only has one player just pocketed €5.4 million, but there are also more great chances to win huge sums of money before the end of 2017.

The Irish Lotto jackpot has reset to €2 million, the top prize in EuroMillions is up to €37 million ahead of Friday night’s game, and the Christmas Millionaire Raffle is set to take place on Sunday 31st December.

One player is guaranteed to win €1 million in the Millionaire Raffle, while more than 5,000 other prizes will be given away, ranging from €500 to €250,000. Good luck!
