Family Syndicate Claims €14.6 Million Lotto Jackpot

The biggest prize ever won online, worth €14.6 million was claimed by a family syndicate based in Dublin. They purchased the ticket last minute, less than half an hour before the 7:45pm deadline.

A month ago, on the evening of 27th January, an amazing Lotto jackpot was won by a single winning ticket purchased online. The lucky winners proved to be a family syndicate from Dublin. They claimed their grand prize on 26th February at the Irish Lottery headquarters. 

One family member shared that they only bought the ticket last minute, just before the ticket sales cut-off time at 7:45pm. “To be honest, the ticket purchase was totally last minute. We only thought of it by chance after 7pm that evening so it was a bit of a rush to make sure we logged on and got the ticket before the 7.45pm deadline,” they said.

“There wasn’t a chance that any of us was going to make a dash to the shop at that stage so we have definitely learned one of the benefits of playing online.”

The family shared that they realised they had won on the night of the draw. The winning numbers were 3, 8, 10, 24, 32, 41, with the Bonus Ball 30. The family member that spoke on behalf of the family also shared their initial reaction to the realisation that they were about to share the €14,674,966 amount. 

“I checked the ticket first and then I think I might have been speechless for a few minutes. When I eventually got my words back, I was quick to share the news and the utter surprise.”

“The shock did take a bit of time to wear off but shockingly, I actually didn't have a problem sleeping that night – it must have been all the excitement. I can only speak for myself though! Ever since then, we have been looking forward to visiting the Winners Room and collecting the cheque to see that huge amount in writing.”

Whether they choose to invest the money or spend it on holidays, houses, cars or on their hobbies, the family can now enjoy the benefits that come with winning such a big prize.
