Revealed! Irelands Luckiest Lotto Counties

Co. Louth may be Ireland’s smallest county, but when it comes to Lotto wins it has been the luckiest over the last 30 years, a new National Lottery survey reveals.

The National Lottery today unveiled Ireland’s luckiest Lotto Counties calculating the number of jackpot winners since the game launched in 1988 against 2016 Census population records.

The “Luckiest Lotto Counties” survey shows that Co. Louth, known as “the Wee County”, boasts the most Lotto millionaires per head of population since Lotto launched three decades ago, with an incredible 5.9 Lotto jackpot winners for every 10,000 people. The county has had 76 lucky Lotto jackpot winners who have won in excess of €89 million between them.

Coming a close second place is Co. Donegal, which has clocked up 90 Lotto jackpot winners in 30 years, sharing over €116 million in prizes. Census 2016 population figures show there are 5.65 Lotto jackpot winners for every 10,000 people in the county.

The Mayo football players may have suffered an early exit in the race for Sam Maguire this year but Lotto players in the green and red of the western county have had significantly more luck in the lottery game coming third on the Lotto list with 4.44 Lotto jackpot winners per 10,000 people. They have had 58 Lotto jackpot winners sharing over €103 million in prizes.

Meanwhile, Dublin had had 572 lucky Lotto jackpot winners scooping over €856 million in jackpot prizes alone, or 4.25 winners per head of population. That tally places the county 4th on the Lotto league table due to its population of over 1.3 million.
