On Wednesday, August 9, 2023, Ireland welcomed another Lotto millionaire after a player won €4.2 million. However, the lucky jackpot winner is yet to come forth and claim their winnings. This means the National Lottery must launch a search for the winner, and one of the best ways is by revealing the store where lucky players purchased winning tickets.
According to the National Lottery, the winning ticket worth €4,257,050 was purchased at Central on Station Road in Mohill. The Leitrim winner correctly checked the numbers 32, 25, 18, 17, 11, 04, and the bonus number 9. Following this win, the anonymous lottery player became the 25th millionaire to be created by the regulated lottery operator in 2023.
The owner of the store, Eugene Baxter, was thrilled to get the news. He stated:
"Ah it's just brilliant, never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined that a simple trip to our Centra shop could lead to such a life-changing moment for one of our customers. We've never had a win this big in Mohill and its incredible to think that we played a part in someone's journey to a €4.2million fortune! We're absolutely thrilled for the winner and I'm sure the entire community will be sharing in this excitement over the next couple of days.”
The National Lottery has advised Leitrim Lotto players to confirm their tickets because Wednesday's top prize winner is yet to contact them. The operator has advised the newest National Lotto millionaire to sign the back of their ticket for security reasons.
The lucky player can contact the National Lottery through the following channels:
It's vital to note that ticket holders of lottery games in Ireland have up to 90 days to claim their winning prize. The prize money becomes void if the player doesn't claim the win within this duration.
