NATIONAL Lottery chiefs are asking Lotto players in Co Meath to check their tickets as one lucky player has won €204,038 on last night’s draw.
The ticket was purchased in the seaside Meath village of Gormanstown.
The winner matched five numbers and the bonus number. It is believed that the winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at the Applegreen Gormanstown Service Station in Co. Meath.
The winning numbers from last night’s Lotto draw were 11, 22, 27, 28, 34, 36 and the bonus number was 45.
‘CHECK TICKETS VERY CAREFULLY’
A spokesperson from the National Lottery said: “With more than 109,000 Lotto players winning prizes on last night’s draw alone, one of these was just one number short of winning the €5 million jackpot.
“However, this person has won a hefty Match 5 and bonus prize of €204,038 so we are asking players in Gormanstown and surrounding Meath and North Dublin areas to check those tickets very carefully.
“If you are this lucky ticketholder, be sure to sign the back of the ticket and please contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email email@example.com and we will make arrangements to get your prize.”
JACKPOT ROLLS ON
Meanwhile, there was no winner of last night’s Lotto jackpot of the €5.26 million which means an estimated €5.5 million will be on offer during the next draw on June 10th.
The National Lottery is also reminding players that it has extended the period of time that lucky winners can collect prizes due to Covid-19 health restrictions.
This means that any lucky winners of Lotto, EuroMillions, Telly Bingo and Daily Millions draws from 9th January 2020 until draws in the week of 5th July 2020 will have an extra three months in which they can claim their prize.
