The National Lottery has confirmed that it will be adding an additional €1 million into the guaranteed to be won, Lotto Plus Raffle prize pot for tomorrow’s Lotto draw.This is on top of the estimated €5.5 million Lotto jackpot already on offer.
By topping up the raffle prize fund by €1 million, the National Lottery predicts that each winner of Saturday’s Lotto Plus Raffle draw will receive between €8,000 - €12,500.
It has been a bumper year so far for Lotto players in Ireland with over €106 million won in prizes. In 2020, a total of 16 new millionaires have been made through Lotto and Lotto Plus games while ten separate jackpot winners have claimed over €49 million between them.
The biggest Lotto jackpot win of 2020 was over €9.7 million which was claimed by a Kerry family after they purchased their lucky ticket in Killarney last April.

There was no winner of last Wednesday night’s €4.8 million Lotto jackpot which means that Saturday’s (24th October) Lotto jackpot, which has been rolling since Wednesday 23rd September, is now heading for a life-changing €5.5 million.
A National Lottery spokesperson has encouraged all Lotto players hoping to scoop Saturday’s €5.5 million estimated jackpot and a share of the guaranteed to be won €1 million Lotto Raffle prize to continue to adhere to Government guidelines when purchasing a ticket.
“Given the Government restrictions currently in place, we are calling on our players to continue to heed the public health advice and practise social and physical distancing if they are shopping in their local store.
Players who are unable to get to their local store can play all of their favourite National Lottery games online at www.lottery.ie or by using the National Lottery app.”
