LOTTO bosses have revealed the location of the lucky ticket that gave one player an eye-watering result €334,197 at last night’s draw.
The Limerick gambler scored the huge sum after matching five numbers and the bonus figure in the main draw.
The winning numbers in last night’s Lotto draw were: 08, 24, 29, 37, 41, 42 and the bonus was 22.
And the Treaty County punter was sure to be celebrating last night after purchasing his winning Quick Pick ticket on the day of the draw at Centra in the Northtown Shopping Center on Ennis Road.
Shop owner Ger Rodahan was delighted when he heard that one of his customers woke up this morning to good news.
He said: “What a call from the National Lottery! There will be great excitement, both in the store and in the city, once it is announced that we have sold a ticket worth over €330,000.
“Most of our customers are local, so it’s great news for the community.
“For all we know, the winner may not even realize they’ve already won, so hopefully they’ll check their ticket soon.
“This is the biggest prize we have ever sold, so we hope this continues and we may have even more big wins soon.”
The player has yet to come forward to claim his prize – and may not know that a fortune awaits him.

Lotto bosses have urged them to sign their ticket, keep it safe and come forward to claim their huge prize.
More than 79,000 players won prizes in the Lotto and Lotto Plus games in last night’s Lotto draw.
Since there was no real winner of the €4,170,027 jackpot on offer, Wednesday’s jackpot is estimated to be €4.5 million.
Meanwhile, tomorrow night could be truly life-changing for a National Lottery player in Ireland as the first ever EuroDreams draw takes place at 8pm.
The tickets went on sale last Monday and since then excitement has been building among players across the country as this is the first annuity game of its kind ever seen in Ireland.
Unlike other lottery-based games, the annuity top prize, worth €7.2 million, is paid out in monthly tax-free payments of €20,000 spread over 30 years.
Draws are held every Monday and Thursday, where players choose six main numbers from 1-40 and one bonus number (the so-called “dream number”) from 1-5 to create their combination.
Tickets for the EuroDreams game are available from usual National Lottery outlets nationwide, as well as at www.lottery.ie and via the National Lottery App.
Tickets can be purchased every Monday and Thursday before the 7:30 PM closing time.
As with the EuroMillions game, the draws will take place in Paris, France at approximately 8pm (Irish time) on draw nights.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “Monday evening will be a big night for National Lottery players across the country as the first EuroDreams draw will take place in Paris at 8pm Irish time.
“We’ve never had a match like this in Ireland.
“A player in Ireland could potentially start his week by winning €20,000 every month for 30 years if he gets six numbers and the Dream Number right.
“And even without the dream number, if a player has six numbers he can win €2,000 per month for five years, for a total of €120,000.”
