Irish Lotto players are bracing themselves for two potentially life-changing draws in the next two days - with a record jackpot up for grabs on Wednesday.
Tonight's EuroMillions jackpot is rolling towards an estimated €145 million (₦69 billion).
If the colossal jackpot is won on Tuesday evening in Ireland, it would mark the 17th Irish EuroMillions jackpot win since the game launched in Ireland in 2004.
Ahead of the highly-anticipated mega draw, the National Lottery are reminding players that the cut-off time for ticket sales is 7.30pm this evening and tickets can be purchased in-store, in the National Lottery app or at www.lottery.ie.
Meanwhile, Lotto fever continues to grip the nation as Wednesday night’s jackpot heads towards an estimated €19 million which could become the highest amount ever seen in the game.
If the Lotto jackpot exceeds the current cap which is set at €18.96 million, 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.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: "National Lottery players all over Ireland are counting down the hours to tonight’s massive EuroMillions draw with an estimated €145 million jackpot on offer. If a player in Ireland wins this hugely life-altering amount, it would mark the 17th Irish EuroMillions jackpot win since the game launched in Ireland in 2004.
"Tomorrow night’s Lotto jackpot is set to hit an estimated €19 million which could prove to be an historic milestone in the game. 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, which was the largest amount ever seen in Lotto."
