A LUCKY Irish lotto player has shared in a record Euromillions jackpot of nearly €188m.

The amount has been split between a ticket bought in Ireland and one bought in Belgium. 

The winning numbers drawn last night were 4, 5, 13, 27, 35 and the lucky stars were 1 and 2.

It means that each of the winners will take home around €94m.

The lotto player has scooped the biggest prize in Ireland in the draw since Limerick woman Dolores McNamara won €113m.

Ms McNamara took home biggest jackpot ever won in the draw at the time when she visited Lotto HQ in Dublin in 2005.
