Lucky Dublin Irish Lotto winner finally comes forward

Lottery24 – Irish Lotto jackpot winner comes forwardAn anonymous Dublin lottery winner has come forward to claim their €9.4 million prize, a week after the draw took place.

The winning ticket was a Quick Pick selection for the Irish Lotto draw held on Saturday August 26, purchased from a Spar store on Talbot Street in the centre of Dublin. Not long ago another jackpot winning Irish Lotto ticket was sold in Dublin city centre. Ulrika Campbell, the owner of the Spar Store, told the press that she was delighted that one of her customers won on the lottery. “It’s brilliant,” she said, of having a winning ticket sold in her store. “I really hope it was a local person who won it.” When a winning Mega Millions jackpot ticket was sold in a store in New York State, the owner said he hoped that the $127 million winner was from the local area.

The winning numbers were 1, 16, 17, 32, 34, 35 and the bonus ball was 5. A spokesperson for the Irish Lotto said, “Arrangements are now being made for them to collect their prize, and the player has indicated that they will keep their win private.” Recently another Dublin lottery winner was finally able to buy their own home after scoring €500,000 on a scratch card. Store owner Ms Campbell said that although she is delighted to have sold the winning ticket, she hopes that whoever the winner is will spend it wisely. A recent Irish Lotto winner from Co Meath vowed to give all of the €200,000 prize away to their grandchildren.

“A lot of people come in here to buy their Lotto tickets but I hope it was someone who really needs the money,” she said of the €9.4 million Irish Lotto prize. The store owner continued to talk about the joyous mood in the store after finding out that they’d had a hand in somebody’s lottery fortune.

“There was a great atmosphere in the shop today. There is only a few people that work here so we were all talking this morning and saying how amazing it is that one of us would have sold the ticket.” Ms Campbell continued to say that they would have their day of celebrations in the store and then get back to work, “but I’m just happy that someone picked up their ticket here and won a nice little bit of pocket money.” A store that sold a winning EuroMillions ticket had quite a celebration, as their €25,000 retailer bonus was split amongst the staff.
