The luck of the Carlovians

Saturday night's €10,288,699 mega Lotto Draw was won but did you know...

The highest Lotto jackpot in the history of the National Lottery was €18.9 million in Hegarty’s, Staplestown, Carlow, in June 2008.

Meanwhile, the National Lottery has appealed to all of its players across the country to check their tickets to see if they have become the 21st Lotto player in the history of Lotto to win over €10 million after Saturday night's draw. 

This latest jackpot win comes the same week a large family syndicate from North Dublin scooped a mind-blowing €175 million on the EuroMillions game.
