s after last weekend’s Lotto Jackpot of €6,197,310 was won with the winning ticket bought in our Drogheda Extra store.

This is the fourth Lotto jackpot to be won so far this year and amazingly, the second won in Co. Louth. The winning numbers were: 1, 7, 9, 18, 22, 33 and the bonus number is 17.

Speaking on this latest Lotto jackpot win, a National Lottery spokesperson said:

“County Louth may be Ireland’s smallest county but when it comes to Lotto wins it is really punching above its weight. So far this year, half of our Lotto jackpot wins have come from the ‘wee county’. Louth has always done well when it comes to Lotto wins. A recent review conducted by the National Lottery shows Louth is the luckiest county.”

The National Lottery’s “Luckiest Lotto Counties” survey showed that Co. Louth boasts the most Lotto millionaires per head of population since the Lotto game was launched 32 years ago, with an incredible average of 5.9 Lotto jackpot winners for every 10,000 people. The county has had 78 lucky Lotto jackpot winners who have won in excess of €97 million between them.

The National Lottery spokesperson continued:

“We are calling on all our Lotto players in Louth, particularly those who play in Drogheda to carefully check their tickets to see if they have won this life-changing prize. If it is you, be sure to sign the back of the ticket, keep this valuable piece of paper safe and contact our prize claims team on 01 836 4444 and we will make arrangements for you to come to the National Lottery to get your prize”.
