The lucky winner who scooped €5.8m in last night’s Lotto jackpot bought the winning ticket from the General Post Office on Cecil St in Limerick on Saturday.

The mystery millionaire has yet to come forward after a ticket worth just €5 became millions.

The winning numbers were 4, 16, 18, 24, 32, 35 and the bonus was 6 on a quick-pay ticket.

This is the second Lotto jackpot winner to hail from Limerick this year.

A lucky winner won €3m in September.

CEO of the National Lottery, David Griffin said: “We’re advising all of our Limerick Lotto players to check their tickets this morning to find out if they have won this life-changing prize.

"If you are the lucky ticket holder or holders, sign the back of the ticket and contact the National Lottery Prize Claims Team on 01 836 4444.

"I am looking forward to welcoming the winner into the Winners Room in Lotto HQ soon."

A spokesman for the National Lottery quipped: “Whoever wins it will have enough for a decent Christmas anyway.”

He said phone lines don’t open until tomorrow morning so they won’t know who the lucky winner is for at least another day.

Meanwhile, Lotto chiefs have also urged another millionaire to come forward and collect their €1m winnings from Friday's Ireland Only Raffle.

The winning code found on that ticket was I-CWQ-43032 and was sold in a SuperValu store at Kilbarry Centre, Tramore Road, Co. Waterford.
