€33k win on Mullingar-bought lottery ticket

A lottery player who bought their ticket at Euro Spar on the Green Road in Mullingar is €33,181 the richer, after they matched five numbers in last weekend’s National Lottery draw.

Normally the Match 5 prize is not so large – but as the jackpot was capped at €19.06m after rolling over for several weeks, the funds that would usually be added to the jackpot were instead divided among the 24 players who matched five numbers.

The 24 winners were drawn from 13 counties, and the ticket was the only Westmeath-bought ticket to feature among the winners.

The National Lottery is appealing to players to check their tickets carefully and is advising all who matched five numbers to sign the back of their tickets and to keep them safe.

Each of the winners should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prizes.
