The winner was matched with six numbers and the 62-draw drought ended without a winner of the jackpot.
One Kilkenny player also won the Lotto Plus 2; 149 players matched five numbers, and each received EUR36,687 in bonus.
Lucky Kilkenny punter won EUR250,000 for his Lotto Plus 2 win. They bought their winning Quick Pick ticket in Kitty’s Cabin, Rose Inn Street, Kilkenny’s heart.
After matching six numbers on Quick Pick tickets, the west of Ireland EUR19m Jackpot winner won the biggest prize in the game.

Last night was a historic draw in the history and tradition of the National Lottery. A spokesperson for the National Lottery stated that the biggest Lotto jackpot in history has been officially won after rolling for seven incredible months.
The EUR19.06million was won naturally because the winning ticket holder matched all six numbers, so the ‘Will Be Won’ mechanism wasn’t necessary. All Lotto players in Mayo are asked to check their tickets as one player has a ticket that could change your life.
Saturday night’s draw also saw 150 large winners from across the country. Kilkenny player was the first Lotto Plus 2 winner in 2022. He won the top prize of EUR250,000, while 149 players matched five numbers to win the bonus and share nearly EUR5.5 million. Match 5+Bonus Tier winners received the benefit of the prize rolldown from the jackpot. They will now all be eligible to claim EUR36,687 each.
