Last Updated: Wednesday 22nd June 2016, 09:14 am
A Dublin couple are celebrating after matching five numbers and the Bonus Ball on Irish Lotto for an astonishing ninth time. The fortuitous pair from Dublin collected their latest prize, a cheque for €113,661, after another win on Saturday 18th June.
The couple held one of two winning tickets that successfully matched five of the six main numbers drawn as well as the Bonus Ball on Saturday evening, and they claim that this is their biggest reward to date. Quoted in the Irish Mirror, the husband of the pair revealed that he and his partner were delighted with their latest windfall and that there was something of an upward trend in the amounts that they had collected over the years: "The Lotto prizes have got bigger in general over the years when you consider that the first time we matched 5 numbers we won a hundred pounds!”
The pair, who purchased their ticket from Eason Newsagents in Dublin city centre, hope to use their latest prize to aid a number of good causes, with their plans seemingly set to take them overseas: “Charity is something very dear to our heart and we have some local charities we would like to help while we also want to work with a children’s charity in Africa," they said. However, the pair are in no rush to catch a flight and insist that they will be taking some time to let the good news sink in.
Despite stacking up nine big wins, this pair of Irish Lotto fans still have their aims set even higher and are focused on a much larger prize: "We are getting closer and closer to the jackpot,” the husband announced. "Since the start of the Lotto, we have matched five numbers nine times and we’re not giving up on the jackpot just yet. We are certain that we will be back to the National Lottery offices in the next few months to claim an even bigger cheque.”
If you share the same jackpot winning dream as this ambitious couple, tonight’s Irish Lotto jackpot is estimated to be worth a sensational €6 million, a reward that could prove life-changing. To be in with a chance of winning, tickets are available to buy online or from any authorised retailer throughout the country. Best of luck!
