Check those Lotto tickets.
One person from Roscommon struck it lucky in Wednesday night’s Lotto draw.
While the person didn’t match all six numbers to win the jackpot of over €19m the lucky person matched five numbers and is €35,234 richer this evening.
This evening, a post from Kelly’s Londis in Boyle confirmed that they had received a call to say they sold a Match 5 winning ticket in Wednesday night’s draw.
This prize is normally only €1,500-€2,000, but because of the rollover jackpot the prizes are a lot bigger
“We are delighted for whoever our lucky customer is and hope they enjoy spending it,” said a spokesperson for Kelly’s Londis.
Wednesday night’s Lotto draw marked the fourth time that the jackpot remained capped at €19,060,800.
A total of 28 players all over Ireland shared a total prize fund of €986,552 after matching 5 numbers each. The largest winners from last night’s main draw will now go on to claim €35,234 each.
The winning numbers from last night’s draw ( October 13th) were: 09, 15, 39, 41, 44, 47 and the bonus 27.
The winning numbers from last night’s Lotto Plus 2 draw were: 03, 11, 26, 27, 35, 42 and the bonus was 25.
Last night’s Lotto Plus 2 win marked the second €250,000 top prize win in the space of a week after a player in Mayo had similar luck in last Wednesday’s October 6th draw.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “It was a big night for 29 Lotto players all over Ireland. While a lucky Dublin winner won the top prize of €250,000 in the LottoPlus 2 draw, 28 players came out of the main draw with a cool €35,234 each. Due to the jackpot remaining capped at €19,080,600, the funds that would have usually gone to the jackpot were instead distributed to the next prize tier with a winner. As there was no winner of the Match 5 + Bonus category, these funds were added to the Match 5 tier which benefited 28 players who now share a prize fund of almost €1 million. We are today appealing to players to check their tickets carefully as there are 28 players throughout the country who now have tickets worth €35,234 each. We are advising the lucky winners to sign the back of their tickets and keep them safe. The winners should then contact our prize claims team who will make arrangements for them to claim their prizes.”
