LOTTO players are urged to check their tickets carefully after the lucky player won the €250,000 top prize in last night’s Lotto Plus 2 draw.
The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased from Meaney’s Centra in Dromcollogher, Co. on the day of the draw. Limerick.
Shop owner Colm Meaney was delighted when he heard one of his customers woke up this morning to good news.
He said: “It’s always a good time for good news, but winning this in the run-up to Christmas is really brilliant timing.
“We have a lot of local customers here in the community and there have been people talking about the win already this morning.
“We’ve had quite a few happy customers at Telly Bingo and EuroMillions over the years, so that’s what the whole chat was about today.
“There’s a real buzz around the place about the €250,000 win, so we were all delighted to hear it.
“We will likely see more of our customers coming in to check their tickets as the day progresses.
“Hopefully the winner knows how much his ticket is already worth!”
The winning numbers in the Lotto Plus 2 draw on Wednesday December 6 were: 03, 07, 12, 29, 37, 43 and the bonus was 38.
The Limerick winner, who now has a ticket worth €250,000, must sign the back of his ticket and keep it safe.
The biggest winner from last night’s draw should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email [email protected]. Arrangements will then be made for them to collect their prize.
The midweek Lotto draw saw more than 68,000 players across the country win prizes in the Lotto and Lotto Plus games.
As there was no outright winner of the €7,564,749 jackpot on offer, Saturday’s jackpot will now roll towards an estimated €8 million.
The National Lottery is reminding players dreaming of winning big this weekend that lottery tickets can be purchased in store, via the National Lottery app or at www.lottery.ie before the sales cut-off time on Saturday evening at 7.45pm.
So far this year, the Lotto jackpot has been won twelve times in eight provinces.
Major prizes include two players in Limerick, four in Dublin and one by punters in Meath, Donegal, Westmeath, Louth, Leitrim and Laois.
Meanwhile, the Euromillions is set to hit an unfathomable €240MILLION for Friday night’s draw.
If this astonishing amount is won in Ireland, it would increase the total number of Irish EuroMillions jackpot winners to 18 since the game began in Ireland in 2004.
The most recent Irish EuroMillions jackpot win was in February 2022 when a family in Clare scooped €30.09 million on a Quick Pick ticket purchased at Larkin’s Gala Service Station in Ballina, Co. Tipperary.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “What a week this could be for National Lottery players.
“With not just one but two huge sums to play for, the excitement is growing for the EuroMillions and Lotto games.”
