Co Kerry is celebrating a €9.7m Lotto jackpot win - but Dubliners have a reason to check their tickets too.

Three players, in Carlow, Dublin and Galway, will each win a share of €109,359 after falling one number short of the jackpot.

A National Lottery spokesman said he expected the name of the winning store in the Kingdom to be revealed in a couple of days.

"With a jackpot win of this amount, it's important we take some time to inform the winning retailer - and of course give the winning ticket holder the time and space they need to let this amazing win sink in," he said.

"We encourage all Lotto players who purchased a ticket for Saturday's Lotto to check their tickets carefully.

"If you're one of the lucky winners of any of Saturday night's big prizes, sign the back of the ticket and contact our claims team."


Saturday night's winning Lotto numbers were 04, 09, 15, 27, 29, 34, with the bonus 17.

Separately, residents of Walkinstown in South Dublin were urged to check their EuroMillions tickets after a Dubliner won Friday night's EuroMillions Plus top prize of €500,000.

The winning ticket was sold on Friday at the SuperValu store in Walkinstown, Dublin 12.

The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers, which are worth half a million euro to one lucky player, were 05, 08, 24, 30 and 35.

While the €67m EuroMillions jackpot was won in the UK, there were two winners of the Match 5 prize of €16,606 in Tullyallen, Co Louth, and Tallaght.
