Check those tickets! National Lottery continues to appeal to Sligo players ahead of 15th April deadline
A Lotto player in the Culleens area of Sligo has just ten days left to come forward to claim a Match 5 + Bonus prize worth €36,687. The Sligo player scooped their prize in the Saturday 15th January draw.
As ticketholders have 90 days from the draw date to claim their prize, the claim deadline for the Lotto Match 5+Bonus prize is close of business on Friday 15th April 2022.
The winning Lotto numbers for the Saturday 15th January 2022 draw were: 02, 09, 16, 30, 37, 40 and the bonus 23.
Saturday 15th January marked the historic ‘Will be Won’ event in which a player in Mayo won the largest jackpot ever seen in the Lotto game in Ireland.
As the Lotto jackpot was capped at €19.06 million, the funds that would usually go to the jackpot flowed down to the next highest tier at which there was a winner and in that draw, this was the Match 5 + Bonus prize tier. An incredible 149 players all over Ireland shared an astonishing prize fund of almost €5.5 million at the Match 5+Bonus prize tier to win €36,687 each.
The Sligo Match 5+Bonus winner, who is yet to come forward to claim their €36,687 prize, purchased their ticket on the day of the draw in the Mace store at the Hilltop Service Station in Culleens, Co. Sligo.
