Lotto players in Galway urged to check their tickets from October draw as €24,224 prize remains unclaimed

The National Lottery appeal to Galway Lotto players ahead of 5th January claim deadline

A Lotto player in the Portumna area of Galway is yet to come forward to claim a prize worth €24,224 which was won in the 7th October Lotto draw. 

The Galway player shared the €48,448 Match 5+Bonus prize with a Dublin player after purchasing their winning Quick Pick ticket on the day of the draw at Desmond Salmon on Patrick Street in Portumna.  

The winning numbers in the Saturday 7th October Lotto draw were: 23, 25, 28, 32, 33, 44 and the bonus was 29.

As ticketholders have 90 days from the draw date to claim their prize, the claim deadline for this Match 5 + Bonus prize is close of business on Friday 5th January 2024. 

A National Lottery spokesperson has appealed to Lotto players who may have purchased their tickets in Galway for the 7th October draw to check their old tickets as soon as possible to avoid missing out on this €24,224 prize. 

“A Lotto player in Galway will hopefully be celebrating Christmas early by claiming a €24,224 prize which they won back in October. The winning ticketholder purchased their winning Quick Pick ticket for the Saturday 7th October on the day of the draw at Desmond Salmon on Patrick Street in Portumna, Co. Galway. We are hoping that our Lotto players in the West will check their old tickets that might be stuck in the end of old handbags or glove compartments as soon as possible as the winner has just less than three weeks left to claim their Match 5 + Bonus prize.” 

“The winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket, which is now worth €24,224, and to make contact with our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for the winner to visit Lotto HQ as soon as possible.”
