With no winner of Wednesday night’s €9.7 million Lotto jackpot, Saturday’s jackpot is now set to roll to an estimated €10.5 million.
The current Lotto jackpot has been rolling since Wednesday June 9 and the next winner will become the sixth Lotto jackpot winner of 2021.
Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage, and the Irish Language. Since the National Lottery was established 34 years ago, €6 billion has been raised for Good Causes.
In 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
