One lucky Irish player has scooped Saturday night's €2,475,303 Lotto jackpot.

The winning numbers on Saturday 5th June were 10, 16, 17, 24, 26, 42 and the bonus number was 35.

It's the third third week in a row that the Lotto jackpot has been won.

There were no winners of the Lotto Plus 1 or Lotto Plus 2 draws but 92 players won a cool €500 each in the Ireland Only Raffle.

The winning Raffle number was 2965.

Announcing that the jackpot had been won, the Irish National Lottery tweeted: “The #Lotto Jackpot of €2,475,303 has been won in tonight’s draw! #ItCouldBeYou.

“That’s the third Saturday in a row that the #Lotto Jackpot has been won.”

It comes as the National Lottery are appealing to players in Athlone, Castlebar, and Cork to check their tickets carefully as the three latest Lotto millionaires have yet to come forward.

On Saturday May 29th, a lucky Cork player won the €2,469,871 jackpot. The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on the day of the draw at O’Connell’s Foodstore in Myrtleville, Co. Cork.

Just a week earlier on May 22nd, a Westmeath player won the Lotto jackpot of €6,489,165. They bought their Quick Pick ticket on Thursday May 20th at the Applegreen service station located just off the M6/N6 motorway in the Arcadia Retail Park in Athlone, Co. Westmeath.

On the same night, the Lotto Plus 1 top prize of €1,000,000 was won by a player in Mayo. The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on Friday May 21st at Cunningham’s shop in the village of Belcarra.

The winning ticket holders are advised to sign the back of their tickets and keep them in safe places.
