Irish Lotto Winners Claim €10.6 Million Prize
Last Updated: Monday 13th April 2015, 10:02 am
The winners of a €10.6 million Irish Lotto jackpot from the Easter weekend have come forward to collect their prize. The ticket, purchased for the draw on Saturday 4th April, had been sold at a petrol station in Co Meath and the shop owners had not been sure whether the winner was a local resident or a tourist.
It has now emerged that two lucky families teamed up to buy the €4 Quick Pick ticket. They wish to remain anonymous but have claimed their jackpot from Dublin’s National Lottery headquarters and now intend to enjoy the money, starting with a new car or two.
There were no winners of the Irish Lotto jackpot on Saturday 11th April, but over 35,000 players landed cash prizes. The top prize had been worth €2 million after last Wednesday’s jackpot was also snapped up, but nobody managed to match the six winning numbers of 6, 8, 25, 29, 31 and 42. The Bonus Ball was 11 and one player was successful in matching five of the main numbers plus the Bonus to earn €25,000. Another 42 participants matched five main numbers to pocket €1,467 each. The other prizes ranged from €5 for matching three main numbers to €126 for matching four main numbers plus the Bonus Ball.
The Lotto Plus 1 draw did produce a winner of the top prize as one ticket holder matched all six main numbers to land €350,000. Another two players pocketed €3,500 for matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball, and there were over 38,000 other prize winners. There were no winners of the top prize in the Lotto Plus 2 game, but two participants matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to grab €2,500 each.
