Deputy Bernard Durkan pointed out that it has been almost six months since the National Lottery draw was won.

“This didn’t happen in Ronan Collins’ day,” he said. “The jackpot has been stuck on €19m since September. What’s going on?"

Deputy Durkan was speaking after the biweekly lotto draw was rolled over on 46 separate occasions since it was last won on June 6.

“We need a full investigation and audit into the draw,” he added.

“I have never agreed with Premier Lotteries Ireland’s decision to increase the number of balls to 47.

"I’m old enough to remember 1986 when there were 36 balls and that’s how it should have stayed.”
