It’s not a case of ‘lucky 13’ for Donegal today, as National Lottery bosses announce that last night’s winning ticket was bought in Kilkenny.
Excitement spread across the country last night when it emerged that someone had won the biggest Lotto jackpot win in almost four years.
The winning numbers in Wednesday’s draw were 4, 14, 20, 23, 27, 37 and the bonus was 39.
There was one winner of the €12,740,043 top prize.
The National Lottery has now confirmed that the winning Quick Pick ticket was bought in a Kilkenny store.
The ticket holder who has yet to make contact with the National Lottery to claim their prize has officially become the 12th largest Lotto jackpot winner in the history of the game.
Donegal has had a lotto-luck in other years. In 2014, a couple claimed a massive €12.2 million Lotto jackpot with a ticket they purchased at the American House store in Bundoran, Co. Donegal. And in May 2017, two lucky ticketholders from Co. Westmeath and Donegal shared a €12.3 million jackpot.
