A Lotto player in Mayo scooped €595,521 in last night’s draw.
A player in the Castlebar area and an online player in Dublin both came astonishingly close to the jackpot after matching five numbers and the bonus to share a boosted prize fund of almost €1.2m.
However, there was no overall winner of Saturday’s jackpot worth over €19m so the prize rolls over yet again.
The Mayo player became one of the biggest winners of the night after purchasing their Quick Pick ticket at Turlough Stores XL in Turlough, Castlebar on Friday.
The winning numbers for last night’s draw were: 05, 10, 12, 23, 28, 47 and the bonus was 16.
Attracta Barrett, who owns the winning Mayo store with her husband Michael, was delighted to hear that one of their customers became one of the biggest winners in Saturday night’s draw.
“This is the biggest prize that we have ever sold so we’re all absolutely thrilled. It’s lovely to think that someone in the town might have come into good luck overnight and on a bank holiday weekend as well. There will be great excitement around the place today and I’m sure lots of customers will be keen to check their tickets. We wish the winner all the very best with their win!”
