Lotto fever hits as Euro jackpot reaches €130m

Lotto chiefs are urging people to buy their EuroMillions ticket early today as the jackpot reaches a whopping €130m.

If not won by a player or players matching five numbers and two lucky stars, the jackpot will roll down to the winners in the next highest prize category.

The last EuroMillions draw was held in late September.

There was no winner in the top prize category of Match 5 plus 2 stars and the jackpot dropped to the next prize level of Match 5 plus 1 star.

Fourteen winners from Europe received over €9.8m each.

Since Ireland joined the EuroMillions game in October 2004, over seven million Irish players have won over €240m in prizes.

In July 2005, Dolores McNamara from Limerick won the largest individual EuroMillions prize of €115m euro.
