With a little over two weeks to Christmas, National Lottery players have the chance of landing the ultimate Christmas bonus as tomorrow night’s Lotto jackpot heads to a mind-blowing €6.5 million.

Donegal is due a jackpot winner. Of the 14 millionaires created so far this year, only one comes from here – the winning €4,434,994 ticket being bought Statoil Service Station, Letterkenny Road, Lifford in January.

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s €6.5 million (est) Lotto jackpot, a spokesperson for the National Lottery said:

"The Lotto jackpot has been rolling since Saturday 6th October and excitement is well and truly building nationwide ahead of Saturday’s massive €6.5 million (est) jackpot.

“We expect shop tills to be merrily ringing with the sound of shoppers buying a Lotto ticket to be in with a chance to cash in on this major prize. There is no better time to become a millionaire as the festive season gets into full swing. In fact, if you win tomorrow night’s Lotto jackpot, or the Lotto Plus 1 top prize of €1 million, you will become the 15th Lotto millionaire of 2018.”

The spokesperson continued: “For your chance to get your hands on some Christmas cash play Lotto in-store, online or using the National Lottery app before 7:30pm tomorrow evening (Saturday 1st December).”
