One Irish punter is €1 million (₦483 million) richer after scooping the top prize in Friday night's Daily Million draw.

The winning numbers drawn were 2, 5, 8, 11, 15, 31 and the bonus number 23.

Friday night's EuroMillions jackpot of €130 million was also up for grabs tonight but no one claimed top prize, although over 89,000 players won small prizes.

The winning numbers were 02, 12, 20, 27, 41 and lucky stars 10, 12.

Meanwhile, the Lotto jackpot roll continues and is now set to hit an estimated €18 million.

The current Lotto jackpot has been rolling for over three months since Wednesday 9th June. So far this year, there have been five Lotto jackpot wins by players in Limerick, Kilkenny, Westmeath, Cork and Galway.

In the history of the Lotto game in Ireland, only one jackpot in excess of €18 million has ever been won which was in June 2008 when the Dan Morrissey syndicate from Carlow scooped a whooping €18,963,441.

A single winner of Saturday night’s life-changing €18 million (est) jackpot would find themselves at number two on the list of all-time highest wins since the game launched in Ireland in 1988.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “There is a huge buzz around this weekend’s Lotto draw with the jackpot heading towards an estimated €18 million. The current Lotto jackpot has been on an unprecedented roll without a winner since June and is now edging very close to reaching the current jackpot cap.

The Lotto jackpot is currently capped at €18.96 million and this represents the record breaking Lotto jackpot win by the Dan Morrissey syndicate in Carlow in June 2008. Once the jackpot exceeds the cap, no more money will be added to the jackpot prize until it is won.

"The funds that would normally go to the jackpot will be distributed to the next lower prize tier at which there are winners. If the jackpot is won at an amount higher than €18.96 million, that amount will become the game’s new jackpot cap.”
