Ireland National LotteryIreland National Lottery: Ireland Lottery draws two €1 million raffle winners

By Todd Northrop

The Ireland Lottery conducted its annual Christmas raffle drawing Friday, awarding two grand prizes of €1 million (US$1.3 million) and many smaller cash prizes.

A complete list of winning numbers for the drawing can be found at Lottery Post's Ireland Lottery Results page.

Christmas Raffle tickets went on sale Oct. 18. Only 450,000 of the €20 tickets were made available for sale.

The final draw took place this evening (Dec. 31), but for those who purchased their tickets early, there were two extra chances to win, with Bonus Draws on Oct. 30 and Nov. 27.  The bonus prizes for those drawings were €100,000 and €250,000, respectively. 

Anyone buying a ticket before the bonus draw had their number entered automatically.  Tickets entered into the October and November Bonus Draws were also included in the final draw that took place Dec. 31.

Main draw prizes range from €100 up to the big one, €1,000,000:

  • 2 prizes of €1,000,000
  • 5 prizes of €100,000
  • 17 prizes of €10,000
  • 49 prizes of €5,000
  • 148 prizes of €1,000
  • 242 prizes of €500
  • 543 prizes of €100
  • 1 Early Bird prize of €100,000, drawn October 30
  • 1 Early Bird prize of €250,000, drawn November 27

All prizes are tax-free and must be claimed within 90 days of the final draw date for which the ticket is eligible.

    You can play the Irish lottery online from overseas, but you do need an Irish address, if you have a relative there you can use their address.

    We all get a lot out of lotteries!
