I bought winning Lotto ticket by chance but know exactly how to spend cash

A LIMERICK family “in a state of shock” after bagging a €1 million Lotto jackpot have revealed how they’ll know spend their winnings – despite buying their ticket by chance.

The large and ecstatic clan travelled to Lotto HQ in Dublin City on Monday to claim their lifechanging Daily Millions cash.

The winning ticket was sold in Ryan's Supervaly in Kilmallock

Their seven-figure ticket was sold in Ryan’s Supervalu in Kilmallock for the 9pm draw on Friday, June 30.

The Limerick family, who wish to keep their win private, spoke of their excitement and their celebrations, which have been raging for the last two weeks. 

The head of the syndicate said: “Although we’ve had over two weeks to let the win sink in, we are still in a state of shock.

“The win came about totally by chance really.

“I was in the shop and had a couple of euros spare in my pocket so I said I’d buy a ticket for the Daily Million draw.

“Afterwards, when I checked the ticket on my phone, it told me it had won big but I had no clue how much! 

“When I finally checked each individual number, I rushed home to tell everybody the good news but there was absolutely no way that they would believe me!”

Despite partying hard for the past two weeks, the crew have made sure to carefully draw up a list of spending plans to celebrate their win in style.

They explained: “The timing for this win couldn’t be any more perfect!

“We have a family wedding in Australia in the coming months so we’ll sit down together and make some plans for how we can celebrate properly with our wider family down-under.

“I will be paying off my own mortgage and some of the others will have some small bills to pay but we won’t be going too mad with the spending.”

The syndicate have also considered making an appearance at next week’s all Ireland hurling final, and hope to bring some of their luck to the Limerick lads.

They said: “And of course – we have the All Ireland hurling final against Kilkenny next weekend.

“So we might plan another trip to Dublin for the match next week.”

Meanwhile, Lotto chiefs today confirmed that Saturday night’s winning Lotto jackpot ticket, worth €2,418,002, was sold in Dundalk.

The Louth store will be announced tomorrow, July 18.

The weekend winner became the eighth Lotto jackpot winner of 2023 following wins by players in Limerick, 2, Dublin, 2, Meath, Donegal and Westmeath.
