A Roscommon woman got her month off to a winning start and claimed €135,820 after matching five numbers and the bonus in the July 1st Lotto draw.
Speaking to National Lottery representatives recently, the woman, who remained anonymous, said: “I don’t even know what came over me that night to even play the Lotto. I wouldn’t be a regular player at all and can’t even remember the last time I played. I happened to be in the shop and just said to myself sure I might as well buy a ticket – thank goodness I did!”
“It was a few days before I even realised I had a winning ticket. I never check my tickets straight away so it was some shock when I finally scanned this one. To see the message ‘You’ve Won Big’ is certainly a surprise and then to hear the amount is another thing. It’s great to finally be able to say I’ve been to the Winners’ Room,” she concluded.
Meanwhile, a Dublin syndicate claimed €3.9 million from Saturday night’s jackpot. The winning ticket was bought at Pinewood Stores in Ballbriggan.
