Irish Lotto Jackpot Winner Claims Impressive €5.9 Million Win
A lucky Irish Lotto player has had a memorable few days after coming forward this week to claim their €5.9 million win from last Wednesday’s draw. The delighted winner, who was accompanied by family members, collected his cheque from the National Lottery offices in Dublin on Monday.
Although the winner decided to remain anonymous, his overjoyed mother said that the win couldn’t have happened to a better person and that her son deserves all the happiness in the world.
The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased from the Spar Esso petrol station in Irishtown, Co Kilkenny and matched all six main numbers 7, 11, 24, 32, 33 and 40 from the draw on 6th August.
Since last week’s Irish Lotto jackpot win, two draws have passed with no top-tier winners and so there is now a double rollover jackpot worth €3 million at stake in Saturday’s draw. If you would like the chance to wake up on Sunday morning €3 million richer, then make sure you buy your tickets before sales close at 19.45 IST on Saturday. Tickets are available online through the Lottery Tickets page or from an authorised retailer.
