The hunt is on for Ireland's latest multimillionaire after a lucky punter bagged an incredible €11m in the latest Lotto draw.

It is understood the winning ticket was sold in a shop in Co Wicklow.

The National Lottery has appealed to players to check their tickets as the winner has not yet come forward to claim the jackpot.

The incredible sum is the biggest National Lottery jackpot in two years, and marks the 15th highest single Lotto jackpot ever in Ireland.

Rollover

The winning numbers were 10, 13, 23, 24, 25, 44 and the bonus number was 12.

The bumper payout soared after the pot rolled over since Wednesday, June 12, and the full jackpot reached €11,225,280.

There was also one winner of the Match 5 + bonus and they will pocket €134,412. A further 12 Match 5 winners will each take home €2,982. The last Lotto jackpot was won by a Galway man, who claimed more than €4m on June 8.

The highest-ever winner was a syndicate from Carlow who claimed €18.9m in June 2008.

A National Lottery spokesperson said it hopes to reveal the name of the winning store in the next couple of days.

"With a jackpot win of this amount, it is important that we take some time to inform the winning retailer and of course, to give the winning ticket-holder the time and space they need to let this truly life-changing win to sink in," they said.

"If you are the lucky ticket-holder, please be sure to sign the back of the ticket, keep it safe and contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 01-836 4444 and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize."
