National Lottery urges Telly Bingo players to check their tickets ahead of 12th October claim deadline
Dublin Lotto player claims €1 Million top prize
The National Lottery has urgently appealed for Telly Bingo players in Laois to check their old tickets from the Friday 14th July draw as soon as possible as a Snowball prize worth €45,075 remains unclaimed.
The winning ticket was purchased on Tuesday 4th July at Dunnes Stores in the Kyle Shopping Centre on James Fintan Lalor Avenue in Portlaoise.
As ticketholders have 90 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize, the Snowball winner has less than a week until the claim deadline which is close of business on Thursday 12th October.
A National Lottery spokesperson has urged Telly Bingo players in Portlaoise who may have purchased their tickets at the Dunnes Stores in the Kyle Shopping Centre to check their old tickets as soon as possible to avoid missing out on claiming this prize.
“With less than a week to go until the claim deadline for the €45,075 Snowball prize, we are urgently appealing to all of our Telly Bingo players in Laois to check their old tickets from the 14th July draw. We are eager to hear from the winner as soon as possible with the last date to claim fast approaching now. The claim deadline is close of business next Thursday, 12th October.”
“The winning ticket was purchased on Tuesday 4th July at Dunnes Stores in the Kyle Shopping Centre on James Fintan Lalor Avenue in Portlaoise. We are hoping that the ticketholder will realise just how much their ticket is now worth and come forward as soon as possible. The winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and to 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 them to collect their €45,075 prize.”
Meanwhile, the Lotto Plus 1 winner who scooped €1 Million in the Wednesday 27th September draw claimed their top prize this week in Lotto HQ.
The winner, who purchased their ticket at the Spar shop in St Agnes Park in Crumlin, admitted that he did not realise he had a winning ticket for almost a week after the draw.
“It was the following Monday before I even thought of checking my ticket. I was getting something out of the car and saw my ticket there so just decided to scan it on the app. At that stage, I didn’t even know that there had been a top prize win so I wasn’t expecting anything until the message ‘You’ve won Big!’ popped up on the screen. I gave the Claims Department a call then to see what it could be. When I heard that I had won €1 million, I was absolutely speechless. That was definitely not how I saw that call going!”
The Dublin winner intends on putting his new found fortune to good use.
“Clearing my mortgage is the top of the priority list. I can’t believe I’m now in a position to even be able to do that. It’s an absolute dream come true!”
