Irish Lotto Plus 2 Prize of €250,000 was Thanks to an Impulse Purchase

A woman from Dublin in Ireland was feeling lucky so decided to buy a lottery ticket. Her feeling was right because she was lucky enough to win a €250,000 prize in the Irish Lotto Plus 2 draw.

Her winning Irish Lotto Plus 2 ticket was purchased from the Lidl store in Glenageary. The lucky winner, who has asked to remain anonymous, was out doing her grocery shopping. She certainly got more than she expected as she landed a massive prize.

Impulse Buy Pays Off

The fantastic €250,000 Irish Lotto Plus 2 prize was collected from Lotto HQ on Friday January 11. “It was definitely the most inspired impulse purchase I have ever made,” joked the winner.

The lottery had been on her mind all week. The day before she bought her own winning Irish Lotto Plus 2 ticket, she’d had an interesting chat with her family. The topic of conversation was the news of the £115.9m EuroMillions jackpot. “So, I guess you could say I was feeling lucky,” the lottery winner said with a grin.

No Idea She’d Won

Even though the lottery was on her mind, she didn’t see the draw live. In fact, it wasn’t until the following Thursday that she even checked her ticket. She didn’t even know the Lidl store had sold a €250,000 winning ticket. When she did, the shocked winner says, “my jaw honestly nearly hit the floor.”

“Never in a million years” did the lucky Dubliner expect to win €250,000. The surprised winner admitted that since finding out about her win, it’s “been a crazy few days.”

The Irish Lotto Plus 2 winner already has plenty of ideas on how to spend her fantastic winnings. Top of her spending list is paying off her mortgage. Then she wants to go out and buy a new car.
