There has been one winner of Wednesday evening's Lotto jackpot.

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

According to lottery.ie there was one winner of the jackpot but further details have not been provided.

The lottery jackpot was €12,849,224.

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

One 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 by a ticket holder in Waterford in 2010.

Ireland has also had a number of major Euromillions successes. In January a work syndicate claimed €88m in a draw after buying their ticket at a service station in Lusk, North Dublin.

The largest ever individual winner was Limerick woman Dolores McNamara who walked away with €115m in 2005.
