The numbers drawn were: 1, 11, 17, 18, 27, 45 and a bonus number 14.

The winning Lotto Plus Raffle number players needed tonight was 8806 – with 68 players taking home the €500 cash prize.

In total, more than 66,000 players won prizes in the Lotto & Lotto Plus draws.

The latest jackpot win comes just weeks after the seventh largest ever Lotto was won in Ireland.

The dazzling jackpot worth €14,674,966 was won on January 27.

The top prize had risen to a staggering amount after not being won since October 11 last year.

The big win came thanks to Fine Gael TD Bernard Durkan who railed against Lotto rollovers and claimed Irish gamblers are being undone by the process.

Jackpot limit

He had called for the introduction of a jackpot cap to ensure the top prize was handed out more regularly.

He told the Irish Sun: “I think there is a case for a limit on the number of times the jackpot can be rolled over.”

Meanwhile, a Wexford syndicate scooped a €1,000,500 prize earlier this month.

The lucky ticket responsible for the Lotto Plus Raffle win was sold at Wallace Costcutters in Wellingtonbridge, Co. Wexford.

Store manager Ger Cruise was “over the moon” when he heard the news and said there had been a “great buzz” in the region since the win.

He said: “Well it was certainly a holiday to remember after Saturday’s Lotto draw.

“We were thrilled when we got the call from the National Lottery and to be honest, there has been a lot of buzz in the city since then.

Sunny South East winners won the life-changing amount in a special event that saw the Lotto Plus Raffle prize fund boosted by €1 million for the February 3 draw.
