A Westmeath player won a Lotto jackpot of nearly €6.5 million on Saturday, 22 May after purchasing their Quick Pick ticket on Thursday, 20 May.

The ticket was bought at the Applegreen service station located just off the M6/N6 motorway in the Arcadia Retail Park in Athlone.

On the same night, the Lotto Plus 1 top prize of €1 million was won by a player in Mayo, with the winning Quick Pick ticket purchased on Friday, 21 May at Cunningham’s in Belcarra, just outside Castlebar.

A week later on Saturday, 29 May, a Cork player scooped the nearly €2.5 million jackpot. The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on the day of the draw at O’Connell’s Foodstore in Myrtleville.
