Irish Lotto Plus 1 winner is “cool as a cucumber” despite being €500,000 richer

Lottery24 – Irish Lotto Plus 1 winner is cool as a cucumberAn Irish Lotto Plus 1 winner from Co Wicklow in Ireland has been described as “cool as a cucumber” by friends after she claimed half a million euros last month.

The lucky winner, who decided not to go public after her big win at the beginning of November, has been chilled out and relax ever since her win, according to friends. The Irish Lotto Plus 1 player, who won on Saturday, November 5th, purchased her ticket from O’Reilly Stores in Baltinglass in Co Wicklow in the day leading up to the draw, and chose to play with Quick Pick numbers, rather than choosing her own. Brothers from Missouri who won $20,000 on the Mega Millions said that their win led to them relaxing even more than they would have otherwise.

Most recently, an Irish EuroMillions winner from Co Wicklow found a winning ticket at the bottom of her handbag, and this player’s friends said that the winner was so relaxed after the win, in fact, that they wondered if she’d ever claim the prize at Lottery headquarters in Dublin. “She casually told us that she had won the Irish Lotto Plus 1 on the Wednesday after the draw,” the friend said as the group of them were gathered at National Lottery offices, continuing to explain that she then asked her friends to accompany her to Dublin for moral support.

“That was almost three weeks ago!” the friend laughed, continuing to say, “She has been going about life as usually, with a half a million euro lottery ticket in her bag. As cool as a cucumber!” Similarly, a UK Lotto winner took three weeks to realise that she’d won £1.2 million, and true to her outlook on life, the Irish Lotto Plus 1 winner told officials that she won’t be changing her life all that much, despite her €500,000 win. Similarly, a New York Lotto big winner said their lives wouldn’t change after winning $42.5 million on the lottery, and a recent winner from Quebec said they wouldn’t be changing anything after winning $37.5 million on the Lotto Max.

“When I won, I just knew that I wanted all of my friends here with me,” the Irish Lotto Plus 1 winner told lottery officials. “We are all very close and I hope this will bring us all happiness. I have no plans for my winnings yet but I will take some time and put it to good use.”
