However, the biggest topic among Irish Lotto fans is that of the €2.9 million jackpot that has gone unclaimed since it was won in November of last year. All prizes from the game expire 90 days after the date of the draw and cannot be claimed after that time. The winning ticket was purchased in Claremorris, Co Mayo for the draw held on 29th November 2014.
As of the time of writing, no one has stepped forward to claim the prize. If they do not present the ticket to the National Lottery’s offices in Dublin by 5.30pm tomorrow, the jackpot will the second biggest uncollected prize since a winning ticket in Coolock went unclaimed in 2001 to the tune of €3.4 million.
If you live in or around Claremorris and bought an Irish Lotto ticket at Tesco, now is the time to turn the house upside down, turn every handbag inside out and rifle through every desk drawer in your office. You don’t want to imagine the horror of waking up on Saturday morning only to realise - far too late - that you had the winning ticket!
There have now been six rollovers since the Irish Lotto jackpot was last won on Thursday 5th February. If you think you have what it takes to turn things around and clinch Saturday’s top prize, then pick up some Irish Lotto tickets now either online or from an authorised retailer. You wouldn’t want to miss out on the chance to change your life forever!
