Lotto gambler wins 'extra special' prize in EuroDreams and wins money for 5 years

A LUCKY Irish gambler will collect €2,000 a month for the next five years after winning a “special prize” in the EuroDreams Lottery today.

The player, based in Co Dublin, won the prize along with 62,000 other players in Ireland who bought a ticket for the draw.


Players are urged to check their tickets

There was no winner of the main prize, which was worth no less than 20,000 euros per month for thirty years.

And no Irish player managed to cash in on the second prize, worth €2,000 a month, for the next five years.

The lucky Dublin player, who bought his winning ticket online, won the cash as part of the special EuroDreams 'Leap Day' prize.

The lucky numbers in question are: 10, 11, 21, 31, 38, 40 and bonus ball number 1.

Around 11 Irish players managed to match five numbers during the draw, each taking home a cool €126, while 652 Irish players cashed in €42 after matching four numbers.

The player has been urged to contact the money chiefs at Lotto headquarters to claim their prize.

Separately, two lucky Irish players traveled to Lotto headquarters to collect their prizes worth €150,000 and an eye-watering €200,000 this week.

And one player, from Co Cork, picked up his huge prize after “taking one wrong turn” and coming across a shop he had never been to before.

The Rebel County winner won a whopping €200,000 on a €10 All Cash Spectacular National Lotto scratch card.

He bought the lucky ticket at the Centra store in Castlelyons, Co. Cork, after a trip that didn't quite go to plan.

Explaining the stroke of luck, the winner admitted: “I was completely lost.”

He continued: “I was driving around Castlelyons, somewhere I'd never been before, and I had no idea where I was.

“I must have taken a wrong turn and got completely off the beaten track.

“I finally came across the shop and told myself I might as well buy a scratch card as I've never been here before and who knows if I'll ever be back.”

'Best Story'

He shared that it's “probably the best story” ever to come from getting lost, and said his lucky win came just weeks after he won money with another scratcher.

He said: “I got a shock when I saw all those zeros.

“The funny thing was that I had only won €100 with a scratch card two weeks in advance, so I had to be lucky.

“They say good things happen in threes, so we'll have to wait and see what the next step will be. Maybe I can be back here soon!”
