The Donegal lotto player who scooped a cool €457,080 in last Saturday’s lotto draw contacted Lotto Headquarters to claim their cash today.
The player started the claims process by supplying a 50 digit code to lotto bosses.
The winning ticket was sold in Kernan’s Spar in Ballyshannon on Thursday last ahead of Saturday night’s draw.
The identity of the winner is not yet known but rumours are rife!
Lotto spokesman Fran Whearty was remaining tight-lipped but confirmed the Donegal winner had contacted their offices.
He told Donegal Daily the winner will be claiming almost half a million euro using their remote claims process.
However, he added that the winner should have their cash in their account in time for a Christmas spending spree!
