Laois Lotto player yet to come forward to claim €263,058 prize from November draw

Check those tickets ahead of 23rd February claim deadline!

The National Lottery are appealing to Lotto players in Laois to check their tickets carefully from the 25th November draw as a prize worth an incredible €263,058 remains unclaimed.  

The Laois Lotto winner matched five numbers and the bonus in the Saturday night draw after purchasing their winning Quick Pick ticket on the day of the draw at the Maxol service station on the Dublin Road in Portarlington. 

The winning Lotto numbers in the Saturday 25th November draw were: 13, 17, 21, 22, 37, 42 and the bonus was 2.

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 23rd February. 

A National Lottery spokesperson has urged Lotto players in the Portarlington area of Laois to search far and wide for their old tickets from the 25th November draw to ensure the winner avoids missing out on this €263,058 prize. 

“Imagine having a Lotto ticket worth €263,058! That’s the reality for a player in Laois who matched five numbers and the bonus back in November. We are yet to hear from the winner who purchased their ticket at the Maxol service station on the Dublin Road in Portarlington on the day of the draw which was Saturday 25th November. With just under four weeks to go until the claim deadline, we are encouraging all of our players who may have purchased their tickets at that service station to start looking all over the house and in the old winter coat pockets to see if there’s a ticket there from that Saturday night draw. There could be a player out there unaware that they are due a visit to Lotto HQ in the very near future to claim an incredible amount.” 

“The winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and to keep it safe. They should make contact with the prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to collect their prize.”
