Lotto urge public to check tickets as €1 million jackpot unclaimed

It could be you.

The National Lottery has urged the Irish public to check their weekly lotto tickets as the winner of the whopping €1 million jackpot is yet to come forward and claim the prize.

It was revealed that the winning quick-pick ticket was bought in Centra Curragh Grange shop in Newbridge, Kildare – the second time the shop has sold a jackpot-winning ticket, selling one worth €10.2 million in 2015.

The winning numbers were: 02, 15, 25, 32, 33, 35 and the bonus was 26.

“It’s great to get the phone call from the National Lottery to say that one of our customers has won a life-changing prize,” said shop owner Alan Jordan.

“I didn’t realise at the time that the winning ticket had even been sold in Kildare so it was a double surprise. Back in 2015, there was huge excitement in the shop when we sold a Lotto ticket worth €10.2 million. It was an historic draw as well if I remember correctly as the draw had been postponed and took place on the Thursday instead of the Wednesday due to a technical issue.

“As soon as word spreads about this win, I reckon there will be a great buzz around the place again. It’s not everyday that a customer becomes an overnight millionaire so here’s hoping they have checked their ticket and realised their luck was in!”

National Lottery appeal to Lotto players to check tickets

The National Lottery are continuing to appeal to Daily Million players in Kildare to check their tickets carefully from the 9pm draw on October 19 as the winner, who now has a ticket worth €1 million, is yet to come forward.

Ireland’s newest millionaire, who is the 34th of 2023, is advised to sign the back of their ticket and to keep it safe. They should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email mailto:[email protected] and arrangements will be made for them to collect their life-changing prize in Lotto HQ.
