Dublin has come out on top as the luckiest county in Ireland, when it comes to National Lottery wins over the past 12 months.

Almost €30 million has been paid out to punters in the capital, with 49 "top tier" winners across the EuroMillions, Lotto, Daily Millions and Telly Bingo games.

Tipperary is the second luckiest county, with more than €19 million won by players in the county, with Cork placing third.

Tipperary also saw the biggest biggest prize paid out in 2018 - when a syndicate from Thurles won a €17 million EuroMillions jackpot in June.

The National Lottery made 23 people millionaires this year, with more than €436 million in prizes won.
