The winner of a magnificent €5.4 million Lotto Jackpot bought their ticket in the arrival terminal in Dublin Airport on Friday last, December 22nd.
National Lottery CEO, Dermot Griffin, said: “We don’t know at this stage who the lucky winner of this life-changing amount is. But we can confirm the golden ticket was purchased in arrivals at Terminal 1 in Dublin Airport on Friday December 22nd. This was one of the busiest days of the year in arrivals and the ticket could have been brought by somebody coming home for Christmas, by a friend or relative meeting a loved one, or an airport worker. This is going to be a very special Christmas indeed for that lucky person.”
The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on Friday at the WHSmith shop at arrivals in Terminal 1.
Mr Griffin urged all players who purchased a ticket in Dublin Airport Terminal 1 on Friday to check their numbers.
The winning numbers were: 5, 14, 28, 29, 32, 38 and bonus number 31.
“This is especially important if it is somebody who is a visitor or not a regular player. Please check your tickets to see if you are the winner of this magnificent Christmas present. The tickets can be checked in store or through the National Lottery App. This is such a great story at this special time when family and friends are coming together to celebrate the festive season. We are thrilled to be making this a very Merry Christmas indeed for a player or players.”
So, getting checking your tickets and if you know anyone from or visiting Donegal who was in the airport meeting someone or arriving home themselves, make sure you tell them, you never know, they could be millionaires!
