WHAT’S THE HIGHEST THE IRISH LOTTO HAS EVER BEEN?
The biggest Irish Lotto win in history occured back in 2008, when a lottery syndicate of 16 shared a collosaul £18.9 million jackpot.
15 quarry workers hit the jackpot whilst playing in a syndicate with each employee taking home at least around £1.18 million each.
What Is The Jackpot Cap For The Irish Lotto?
The jackpot cap is currently set at £18.96 million, once rolled-over no more will be added to the jackpot until it is won. If however there are no winners matching all 6 numbers then ticket sales that would be added to the jackpot will instead be used to bolster the next tier prize (Match 5 + Bonus Ball, as seen in the table above).
