Mayo’s new Lotto millionaires were on top of the world today, Tuesday, May 14, as they picked up a cheque for €1,292,228.
A family syndicate won the prize in the Lotto draw on Saturday 13 April 2013, sharing the €2,584,457 jackpot on that date with Longford man, Ger Hand.
The syndicate wishes to keep the win private. It’s lucky purchase consisted of a €4 Quick Pick ticket that was bought in Paperchase in the Dunnes Stores Shopping Centre, Ballina on the day of the draw.
The group have known about their good fortune for a number of weeks but decided to let the news settle before collecting the prize. The family says they are regular Lotto players and have won a few Euro over the years. They are “thrilled” with their good news and currently have no plans for the win.
