Cork fam­ily col­lect €1m Lotto prize won in No­vem­ber

The Corkman - - NEWS -

IT was an­other life-chang­ing day in the Na­tional Lot­tery of­fices in Dublin on Tues­day as win­ners from Cork and Roscom­mon col­lected sub­stan­tial prizes in Lotto and the New Year’s Eve Mil­lion­aire Raf­fle.

The biggest win­ners were a lucky Cork fam­ily who only re­alised that they had won a €1 mil­lion Lotto Plus 1 from the draw on Satur­day 3rd No­vem­ber when they stum­bled upon their golden ticket just days be­fore Christ­mas.

“We had ab­so­lutely no idea that we had a Lotto ticket worth €1 mil­lion in the house for two months,” said the Cork fa­ther.

“It was Christ­mas week and we were clear­ing out one of the rooms when we came across this Lotto ticket so we checked it on the Na­tional Lot­tery phone app to make sure there was noth­ing on it be­fore we put it in the bin!

“My wife and I were just sat there stunned into si­lence when we re­alised it was worth a mil­lion euro. It cer­tainly made it a won­der­ful Christ­mas know­ing that we would soon be mil­lion­aires once we col­lected the prize.”

He added: “We didn’t get a chance to claim the prize be­fore Christ­mas but we’ve been walk­ing around with the biggest smiles on our faces ever since we found out.”

The lucky Nor­mal Play ticket was pur­chased at the Centra store on Main Street in Car­rigt­wohill, on the 1st No­vem­ber 2018.

The new Lotto mil­lion­aires promised that they will take some time out to come to terms with their win prop­erly be­fore mak­ing plans for their €1 mil­lion wind­fall.
