Many of us have dreamt about experiencing a time when money is never an obstacle. We have thought about the holidays we would go on, the cars we would drive and everything in between. 

While some people manage to achieve such dreams through businesses or similar ventures, others might do it by having a little bit of luck on their side. Lotteries have been part of life for a very long time, yet they continue to provide chances for plenty of people across the UK and Ireland, with winners hailing from Brighton and Mayo.

The site added that there were also 149 winners at the Match 5 + Bonus tier, with them claiming €36,687 each. 

The main draw offering a minimum jackpot of €2 million already got people talking, but this result could be one that stirs even more interest in the Irish lotto jackpot going forward. Taking place on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the entry costs €2, and the site adds that the odds of winning a prize in the event are one in 29. But it remains to be seen whether life-changing sums like these will end up rolling over that many times again.
