Last Updated: Friday 22nd September 2017, 12:12 pm
Every lottery fan’s worst nightmare is discovering after the deadline for claims has passed that they were due a jackpot. This could become a reality for one Irish Lotto Plus 2 player who bought a ticket for a draw on 17th June in Co Kerry and matched all six main numbers in the supplementary game, but then failed to contact lottery officials and pocket their cheque.
If that ticket holder ever realises their mistake, they will kick themselves for missing the opportunity to pay off the mortgage, buy a new car and jet off somewhere tropical. However, how much worse would it be if they mislaid a winning entry for tonight’s €155 million EuroMillions jackpot?
What €155 Million Would Mean
Winning this evening’s immense nine-figure sum would allow you to quit work straight away. You could buy mansions in Ireland, the US, Australia and anywhere else you fancied, splitting your time between them, depending on where is the sunniest.
The commutes between your luxury homes would only ever be experienced from the finery of First or Business Class, and each abode would boast a garage full of supercars for you to use whilst you were there.
You could look after yourself, your family and friends, and your descendants for centuries to come, not to mention helping out your favourite charities without having to worry how to pay the credit card bill. However, none of this would be possible if you lose your ticket or even simply forget to check it!
How to Keep Your Ticket Safe
You are advised to sign the back of your ticket as proof of ownership as soon as you buy it. After that, make sure you keep it in a secure and memorable place. You have 90 days in which to claim a lottery prize in Ireland, you do not want to spend that time turning the house, car and dustbins upside down, desperately hunting for a slip of paper worth more than the GDP of some small countries.
You should also check the winning numbers as soon as possible. Every day you do not look up the results is an extra opportunity to forget about the ticket completely and a day closer to the claims window slamming shut. The EuroMillions Results page is updated with the lucky line soon after the balls are drawn in Paris.
