The winning numbers of last night’s main Lotto draw are: 1, 7, 9, 18, 22, 33 and the bonus number is 17.
Speaking on this latest Lotto jackpot win, a National Lottery spokesperson said: “County Louth may be Ireland’s smallest county but when it comes to Lotto wins it is really punching above its weight. So far this year, half of our Lotto jackpot wins have come from the ‘wee county’. Louth has always done well when it comes to Lotto wins. A recent review conducted by the National Lottery shows Louth is the luckiest county.
"We are calling on all our Lotto players in Louth, particularly those who play in Drogheda to carefully check their tickets to see if they have won this life-changing prize. If it is you, be sure to sign the back of the ticket, keep this valuable piece of paper safe and contact our prize claims team on 01 836 4444 and we will make arrangements for you to come to the National Lottery to get your prize".
A recent survey by the National Lottery discovered that Louth boasts the most Lotto millionaires per head of population since the Lotto game was introduced. The county has an average of 5.9 jackpot winners for every 10,000 people.
In total, there have been 78 Lotto jackpot winners in Louth and they have won in excess of €97 million between them.
Congratulations to the new winners.
