Laois lotto player narrowly misses out on €11.2 million jackpot

The National Lottery confirmed a winner to tonight's jackpot

The former commercial fisherman has called Richmond home his whole life.

The recent win is the fifteenth highest jackpot since the Lotto was launched in 1988.

Due to this high level of public interest, the National Lottery has advised players to purchase their tickets early to avoid queues and to be in with a chance of winning the truly life-changing prize on offer.

Over the past few weeks, British Columbia has been eagerly anticipating the victor of the CA$60-million cash prize, as this is a major milestone for the province.

Lotto Max is a twice weekly draw with jackpots starting at $10 million.

The BCLC says that this is the largest-ever lottery prize that's been drawn in BC - the last time a jackpot was close to this size was in April of 2016.

With his winnings, Katalinic plans to take his family to Hawaii and to the town in Europe where his parents were born.

Ontario has also recently congratulated another victor hailing from Bracebridge who is now CA$10,000 richer.
