Last Updated: Monday 6th August 2012, 15:34
The first Irish Lottery draw of the week will take place later on this evening and many players will be getting excited as there is an impressive top prize available to win. The Irish Lottery jackpot on offer in tonight’s draw is estimated at €5 and this is actually the second time this year that the top prize in this lottery game as hit the €5 million mark. Therefore, if you like the sound of winning this top prize this evening and becoming a millionaire make sure you have your Irish Lottery tickets ready.
There has only been one Irish Lottery jackpot win so far this year and that happened on the 25th January. In this particular draw one winning ticket, which was sold in the North West, matched all six of the numbers drawn to win the top prize that came out at just over €5.4 million.
To win the jackpot players have to match all six of the main numbers drawn, however actually selecting those numbers some players can find a challenge in itself. Although Irish Lottery players can opt to use the Lucky Dip facility it can also be helpful to look at the Irish Lottery statistics to see which numbers appear in the Irish Lottery results more than others.
The most popular numbers in this lottery are:
- 38, 3, 12, 2, 13 and 39.
However, there are numbers which don’t get selected very often and these include:
- 43, 14, 25, 16, 33 and 34.
Whether any of these numbers will make it into the Irish Lottery results tonight remains to be seen, however you could have the luck of the Irish on your side tonight when the draw takes place and you never know, you might just be winning the jackpot!
