Lotto heading for €16m in huge bank holiday draw

Colin Gleeson

IT could be a bank holiday weekend to remember for some lucky punter.

The weekend Lotto jackpot is heading for €16m after last night's draw -- the 15th in a rollover sequence --- yet again failed to produce a winner.

The numbers for the €14,764,690 prize were 2, 6, 23, 36, 40, and 42. The bonus number was 45.

It is more than a month since the prize was last won; the jackpot has been rolling over since September 1.

Lotto fever has gripped the country since then with many hopefuls dreaming of joining the league of a Co Carlow syndicate who grabbed Ireland's record Lotto win of €18.9m in 2008.

Business was brisk in shops all over the country from early yesterday as people bought their tickets.

There was no winner either of the top €350,000 prize in last night's Lotto Plus Draw 1. The numbers were 8, 15, 18, 19, 37, and 40. The bonus was 12.

In the Lotto Plus Draw 2, there was one winner of the top €250,000 prize. The winning ticket was sold in the south of the country. The numbers were 6, 12, 30, 37, 40, and 42. The bonus was 4.
