TWO lucky Lotto punters have been urged to check their tickets after scooping an impressive €24,224 each in last night’s draw.
The Dublin and Galway players both matched five numbers and the bonus to share a prize fund worth €48,448.
The lucky digits in the draw were: 23, 25, 28, 32, 33, 44 and the bonus was 29.
The Dublin player scooped their €24,224 amount after purchasing their winning Quick Pick ticket on Friday 6th October at the Bus Stop Kiosk in the Nutgrove Shopping Centre in Dublin 14.
And the Galway player won their share of the Match 5 + Bonus prize after purchasing their winning Quick Pick ticket on the day of the draw at Desmond Salmon on Patrick Street in Portumna.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “It’s been a big week for National Lottery players across the Lotto and EuroMillions games.
“Saturday night’s win for a player in Dublin 14 marks the third big win for a player in the Capital in the space of a week.
