€9.4 million Irish Lotto Jackpot Winners Plan to remain Low Key

Lottery24 – Irish Lotto jackpot winners will remain low keyA family from the province of Leinster in Ireland don’t plan to make dramatic changes to their lives despite winning a €9.4 million Irish Lotto jackpot in the draw held on Saturday August 26.

The lucky family claimed their sensational prize on Friday but have requested to remain anonymous. That’s just what a couple from Queensland did last month, after scooping a $3 million Australian Powerball prize.

The family syndicate did make a statement saying they were absolutely delighted with their Irish Lotto windfall. “This will certainly make our lives easier and will secure the future for us all,” the family said. “We plan to remain low key and we don’t intend changing our lifestyle dramatically. We want everything to continue as normal as possible.” That’s just what a family from Perth said after their recent $50m Australian Powerball jackpot win.

Their total win in the August 26 Irish Lotto draw was €9,485,078. Their ticket matched 01-16-17-32-34-35 and the Bonus Ball 05. It’s the latest family syndicate from the area to win a big prize after a family won a €4.5 million Irish Lotto jackpot.

Their winning ticket was purchased from the Spar on Talbot Street, Dublin. Shopkeeper Ulrike Campbell had previously told reporters how she hoped the Irish Lotto jackpot winner would be a local. She commented, “A lot of people come in here to buy their Lotto tickets, but I hope it was someone who really needs the money. “

Ever since that winning Irish Lotto ticket had been sold, the store had been buzzing about the big win. “So, we were all talking this morning and saying how amazing it is that one of us would have sold the ticket. One of us pushed the button for it. It’s unbelievable,” she added.

Ireland has seen several big winning lottery tickets being sold. Recently, reported how Sinéad Mooney and her partner Stephen Nicholl won a €500,000 on a National Lottery scratch card. In July of this year a ticket sold in Co. Mayo scooped a €28.9m EuroMillions jackpot.

The Irish Lotto celebrations continue with a ticket sold at the Coughlan’s Gala Store in Limerick winning the €2m jackpot in the September 6 draw. The holder of that ticket has already been in touch to claim their winnings.
