Lucky player from Galway scoops a massive €4 million on last night’s Lotto draw
We're kind of jealous.
The West is certainly awake this morning as a lucky Lotto player in the Galway suburb town of Doughiska has won last night’s Lotto jackpot of €4,051,610.
Can you imagine just waking up, a millionaire?
This winner wasn’t the only new millionaire made by the National Lottery last night, as an Offaly player also scooped a cool €1 million after winning the Lotto Plus 1 top prize.
A Longford player fell one number short of sharing the Lotto jackpot, matching five numbers and the bonus ball, but still picked up a cool €238,673.
You'd take it like.
The winning Lotto jackpot ticket, worth more than €4 million was sold at Joyce’s Supermarket, Doughiska Shopping Centre, Doughiska Road, Galway.
Doughiska is a suburb less than 10 kilometres from Galway city centre.
A delighted store owner of Joyce’s Supermarket, Pat Joyce said:
"We are absolutely thrilled to have sold the winning jackpot ticket and it’s fantastic news for our customers in the Doughiska community. We’ve been spreading the good news to our locals this morning and getting them to check their Lotto tickets. Doughiska is a lovely place, one that has grown a lot in terms of population in recent years and is a multicultural town so I’m really hoping that the winner is a local."
This is the 93rd jackpot to be won in Galway since Lotto began more than 30 years ago and this is the the fifth jackpot to be won so far in 2019.
The winning numbers of last night’s main draw were: 9, 10, 34, 37, 40, 47 and the bonus number was 7.
The National Lottery is appealing to its Lotto players in Galway, Offaly and Longford to check their tickets. A spokesperson said:
"It’s fantastic news that we have two new millionaires from last night’s Lotto draws. These lucky players are the tenth and eleventh Lottery millionaires made this year alone. We are now asking all our players in Galway, Offaly and Longford to carefully check their tickets."
