A LUCKY Lotto player has just become €1 million richer after landing the top prize in Wednesday's Lotto Plus 1 draw.

The Irish National Lottery has confirmed that the winning ticket was sold in Co Tipperary.

The winning numbers were 2, 4, 13, 17, 23, 27 with bonus number 26.

There was no winner of €4.7 million Lotto Jackpot, but over 74,000 players won smaller prizes.

There were 66 winners of the Raffle Prize, each receiving €500.

The win comes after one anonymous family landed €6.4 million last month in a Lotto jackpot win.

The winning husband, who claimed the massive prize as part of a small family syndicate, said he was still coming to terms with their good fortune.

“Even after two weeks, we still can’t believe it. You always buy a ticket knowing that you’ve a chance of winning the jackpot but when it actually happens – it’s just unreal.

“I checked my phone after the draw and I clicked into the ticket and my jaw nearly hit the floor when I saw the €6.4 million prize.

“It took me nearly twenty minutes to finally open my mouth to tell my wife.”
