The search is on in the west of Ireland for the winner of last night's €7.3m Lotto jackpot with the winning ticket sold in Co Galway.

The winning numbers are: 3, 7, 18, 36, 40, 42 and the bonus number is 16.

This is the eighth jackpot win so far this year, and the 96th Lotto jackpot to be won in Co Galway since the game began in 1988.

A spokesperson said: "With a jackpot win of this magnitude, it is important that we inform the winning retailer and of course to give the winning ticket holder the time and space they need to let this €7.3 million win sink in."

Meanwhile, a Bandon bookshop has been revealed as the seller of Friday's €1 million EuroMillions 'Ireland Only Raffle' ticket.

The ticket was sold in Bandon Books Plus in Riverview Shopping Centre.

Manager Carmel Hayes said: I have absolutely no idea who the winner could be but I would guess that it is a local as that's where most our trade comes from but everyone at Bandon Books Plus would like to wish the winner all the best with their win".

The bookshop also sold a Lotto 2 Plus prize winning ticket worth €250,000 in March 2018.
