A happy working syndicate from Co. Laois traveled to Dublin to collect their €250,000 Lotto Plus 2 top prize, which they won on Saturday 5 August.

The syndicate waited over a month before initially contacting the National Lottery.

The syndicate leader said: “It’s been an incredibly exciting few weeks.

“Some people might say I have a strange routine with my lottery tickets.

“I buy my weekly ticket and always wait a few weeks before checking them.

“It gives me the opportunity to daydream a little longer in the hope that I might have a winning ticket worth a few million euros in my wallet.

“On this occasion, shortly after the draw, someone told me that the top prize of Lotto Plus 2 was sold exactly where I had bought the ticket for the syndicate.

“My ears immediately perked up and I thought, oh hello, the chance of me getting this winning ticket could become a reality.

“Any normal person would have checked their ticket immediately, but I still waited almost two weeks before actually checking the ticket.

“It wasn’t until I read that the winner of the award had still not come forward that I knew I just had to check.

“All that anticipation and build-up was even more fun when I checked and saw that we had won the €250,000 prize.”
