For the past few weeks, lotto players from Kilkenny have joined a growing number of players from across Ireland who are getting tickets for America’s Mega Millions lottery.
The jackpot is now up to €140 million and the expectation is that someone, somewhere will hit it this weekend.
And that someone could be from right here in Kilkenny.
It’s all possible thanks to new Lotto company Multilotto, who are offering customers the chance to win big jackpots from around the world.
You can join the thousands of lottery players from across Ireland who have already got tickets for Mega Millions by getting yours here.
Crucially, Multilotto are licensed by the Irish National Excise License Office, which guarantees you will be paid out if you hit the jackpot.
The jackpot has already rolled over 17 times, which means there’s a great chance someone is going to hit it this time round. And, if that lucky individual is from Ireland, they will instantly become the biggest winner of a US lottery from outside the country in history and one of the biggest ever jackpot winners in Ireland.
The next winner could be from Kilkenny.
