THE hunt is on for Ireland's newest multi-millionaire after one ticket scooped last night's massive Lotto jackpot of €10.5m.
Champagne corks will be popping in the midlands, where the single winning ticket was sold.
The lucky ticket holder or syndicate is now €10,565,261 the richer after their numbers came up last night.
It is the biggest jackpot so far this year. The prize fund has been growing since the start of the month.
There had been no jackpot winner for the previous eight draws.
The numbers drawn in last night's Lotto draw were 6, 12, 14, 16, 33 and 43. The bonus number was 2.
The numbers in the Lotto Plus 1 draw were 6, 7, 31, 32, 33, 34 and the bonus was 14. The numbers in the Lotto Plus 2 draw were 3, 21, 25, 31, 33, 40 and the bonus was 23.
