The West is certainly awake this morning as a lucky Lotto player in the Galway suburb town of Doughiska won the Lotto jackpot of €4,051,610.

The winning numbers of last night’s main Lotto draw were: 9, 10, 34, 37, 40, 47 and the bonus number was 7.

This winner wasn’t the only new millionaire made by the National Lottery last night, as an Offaly Lotto player also scooped a cool €1 million after winning the Lotto Plus 1 top prize.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold in the Spar Maxol store and service station on Church Road, Tullamore. This is the sixth Lotto Plus 1 top prize win of €1 million in 2019. The winning Lotto Plus 1 numbers for last night’s draw were: 3, 25, 28, 34, 42, 27 and the bonus was 11.

This is the 93rd Lotto jackpot to be won in Co. Galway since Lotto began more than 30 years ago and this is the the fifth Lotto jackpot to be won so far in 2019.
