Someone in Donegal received a very welcome email last night after scooping over €90,000 in the National Lottery.
The online player won the second top prize from Saturday’s draw, having fallen short of winning the €2.4million jackpot by just one number.
But a surprise financial boost of €90,260 will give them plenty of cause to celebrate!
The winner matched five numbers and the bonus number. There was no winner of the €2,447,059 Lotto jackpot, which rolls to an estimated €2.8 million for the next draw on Wednesday 20th May.
The winning numbers from last night’s Lotto draw are: 23, 28, 33, 34, 41, 45 and the bonus number is 39.
A National Lottery spokesperson confirmed: “This lucky winner of €90,260 has been alerted that they have won this prize and what a nice email to receive. We are encouraging all of our online and App players to check their emails and to contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email email@example.com and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. We have also extended the period of time that winners can collect prizes to encourage people to stay at home and not require them to make any unnecessary journeys during the current public health emergency.”
This means that any lucky winners of Lotto and Lotto Plus, Lotto 54321, EuroMillions and EuroMillions Plus, Telly Bingo, Daily Millions and Daily Millions Plus draws from 9th January 2020 until draws in the week 5th July 2020 will have an extra three months in which they can claim their prize. The prize claims extension applies to winners who purchased their tickets and scratch card games in-store, online at www.lottery.ie and via the National Lottery App
