A winner described as "a lifetime Lotto player from Donegal" visited National Lottery HQ in Dublin today to claim their fantastic €284,964 Lotto Match 5 + Bonus prize whch they won in last Saturday’s (21st April) draw.
The winning ticket was purchased at Kernan’s EuroSpar in Newtowncunningham and the local winner spoke of their shock at seeing their Lotto numbers of 30 years being called out on TV last Saturday night.
“I was watching the draw live on Saturday and I almost fell off the chair as I saw my numbers being called out one after another. I have been playing the same numbers for 30 years so maybe I was due a big win! The money will be evenly shared among the family but not before we indulge in some celebrations this weekend,” they said.
It was a good day for the north west with a Sligo man who won the €30,000 top prize on an All Cash Tripler scratch card also coming forward to collect his prize. The winning ticket was sold at the Topaz Service Station in Grange, Co. Sligo.
Another of today’s big National Lottery winners were a married couple from Dublin who claimed a €65,000 TellyBingo Snowball cash prize from Friday 20th April. Finally, another Dublin player today claimed a €24,772 EuroMillions Match 5 prize from last Tuesday’s (24th April) EuroMillions draw. The winning ticket was purchased at Dunnes Stores at the Pavillon Shopping Centre in Swords, Co. Dublin.
