11 Midlands Lotto Players Scoop €37,000 Each In Weekend Draw

The search is also on for the winner of the €19 million jackpot!

Lotto players in Co. Mayo are being encouraged to check their ticket, after one person scooped the jackpot over the weekend. 

After over 60 draws over seven months, the €19 million National Lottery prize was finally won on Saturday night, though the winner is yet to claim their prize. 

Spokesperson for the company Sarah Orr has further details on the lucky player:

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

As the Lotto jackpot was capped at €19.06 million, the funds that would usually go to the jackpot flowed down to the next highest tier - the Match 5 + Bonus prize tier.

The 149 winners will now go on to claim €36,687 each.

11 of those winners purchased their tickets in the midlands.
