Irish Lotto winner went from €90 to €400,000

Lottery24 – Irish Lotto winner scooped a €400,000 prizeAn Irish Lotto winner from Kildare in Ireland has revealed that she had just €90 in her bank account when she scooped a huge €400,000 jackpot.

The winner, who is originally from Cork and decided to remain anonymous when she claimed her Irish Lotto prize, told lottery officials that she couldn’t have won her prize at a better time, just like Rudolf Serna from Indiana who won $2 million on the Powerball recently. “I only had €90 in my bank account when I went to do my weekly grocery shopping on Saturday,” the lucky Irish Lotto winner told officials, continuing to say that she got her ticket checked at the counter before she started her shopping, “The girls behind the counter gave me a cheeky wink and told me to contact the National Lottery about my winning ticket,” she added.

Just last month we told you about another Irish Lotto winner from Kildare who said she’d started off her week as well as she could ever have hoped. The ticket that our most recent winner had purchased had been for the draw on Wednesday night, and she’d managed to match five numbers and the bonus ball in order to win a total of €400,504. Once she’d contacted the National Lottery, the winner went to claim her prize at lottery offices, where she told officials that her win will mean the world to her and her family.

Just like a €195,998 EuroMillions winner from County Clare, the $400,000 Irish Lotto winner is a full time carer, and she showed her compassionate side and insisted that the win is not just for her, just like a Massachusetts scratch card winner who planned to help the homeless with her win. Our lucky one wants to use some of her winnings to treat the people that she cares for to a special Christmas. “I am still absolutely flabbergasted with my Irish Lotto win,” she admitted. “I still haven’t got around to telling anybody yet except for one close friend. With Christmas around the corner, I can give everybody the Christmas that they deserve and not have to worry about the money.”
