Irish Lotto winners can’t wait to pay off their mortgages!

Lottery24 – Service station in Meath celebrate selling the Irish Lotto winning ticketLast weekend we told you that a huge €10.65 million jackpot had been landed on the Irish Lotto, and we can now reveal that that prize has been won by a family syndicate from Co Meath.

In the Easter lotto draw last Saturday, the family scooped the top prize of €10,650,121, which was also the biggest Irish Lotto jackpot of the year so far. The lucky winners had purchased a Quick Pick ticket for the draw on Saturday, April 4th in Trim, Co Meath. The family syndicate wishes to remain anonymous.

However, the anonymous Irish Lotto winners did speak to lottery officials and told them of the moment they realised they had become lottery millionaires. “I was watching Match of the Day that evening and thought I better check that ticket, so I looked up the results on Teletext,” they said, continuing to tell that as they checked each number one by one they were filled with a feeling of disbelief.

“I just couldn’t believe it. I looked up at the numbers and down at the ticket, over and over again,” said one of the Irish Lotto winner while they described the feeling of realisation as they became millionaires. “That night it was all rolling around in my head and I couldn’t sleep,” they told lottery officials, continuing to say that since the prize has been claimed they have been “buzzing” with excitement and gratitude.

Celebrating with champagne, as any lottery millionaire should, the Irish Lotto winners said that they already have some plans lined up for their money. “We’ll help out our family, pay off our mortgages and get a new car or two,” they said of the immediate future. However, they did add that above all else they plan to enjoy the money and keep up with the feeling of happiness. “We’re just so happy. It feels like life has just begun and the possibilities are endless,” they said with a broad smile.

The winning Irish Lotto ticket was purchased at Souhan’s Filling Station on Haggard Street in Trim, and the owners of the store were celebrating their winning sale.
