One lucky Irish punter has scooped the €12,849,224 Lotto jackpot.

The winning numbers were 2, 15, 19, 26, 37, 38 and the bonus number was 39.

The winning ticket was sold in Dublin but details of the store where it was bought have not yet been confirmed.

Another player has matched five numbers including the bonus and will take home almost €180,000.

The largest ever Irish Lotto jackpot was won in June 2008 by a syndicate of 16 quarry workers in County Carlow who scooped €18.9 million between them.

The largest amount ever won by an individual was €16.7 million, which was claimed in Waterford in 2010.

Ireland has also had a number of Euromillions successes.
