Lotto players in the West of Ireland urged to check their tickets ahead of 25th March claim deadline!
The National Lottery are continuing to appeal to Lotto players in the West of Ireland to check their tickets carefully from the Saturday 25th December 2021 draw as two Match 5 prizes worth €22,778 each remain unclaimed.
Ticketholders have 90 days from the draw date to claim their prizes which means that the claim deadline for the two outstanding Lotto Match 5 prizes is close of business on Friday 25th March 2022.
The winning Lotto numbers for the Saturday 25th December 2021 draw were: 11, 17, 19, 23, 26, 43 and the bonus 31.
The winning tickets, which are now worth €22,778 each, were both purchased on Friday 24th December 2021.
The Galway ticket holder purchased their ticket at Mannion’s Supermarkets & Emo Service Station on the Miltown Road in Tuam, Co. Galway while the Roscommon player won their share of the Match 5 prize fund after purchasing their ticket at Mulvihill’s Newsagents on the Main Street in Castlerea, Co. Roscommon.
A National Lottery spokesperson has reminded Lotto players of the importance of checking their tickets carefully and urged players in Galway and Roscommon to check their tickets from the Christmas Day draw as soon as possible to ensure that they do not miss out on claiming their Match 5 prizes.
“As the 25th March claim deadline gets closer, we are eager to hear from two Lotto players who are yet to come forward to claim their Match 5 prizes from the Christmas Day draw. Both prizes are worth €22,778 each and the winners have exactly three weeks left to claim. We are appealing to players in Galway and Roscommon who purchased their tickets on 24th December to check their tickets very carefully. The Galway winner purchased their ticket at Mannion’s Supermarkets & Emo Service Station on the Miltown Road in Tuam, Co. Galway while the Roscommon player bought their winning ticket at Mulvihill’s Newsagents on the Main Street in Castlerea, Co. Roscommon.”
“If you are either of these lucky winners, you should sign the back of your ticket and make contact with our prize claims team as soon as possible on 1800 666 222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and arrangements will be made for you to claim your prize."
