National Lottery urges players to check their tickets ahead of 24th of August claim deadline

The National Lottery is appealing to Telly Bingo players in the Ballyvolane area of Cork City to urgently check their tickets as a top prize worth €27,505 from Friday’s 26th of May draw remains unclaimed.   

The winning ticket was purchased at Dunnes Stores in Ballyvolane Shopping Centre Cork City. The player achieved a Fullhouse to scoop their share of the Snowball prize worth €27,505. 

Ticketholders have 90 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize which means that the Cork winner has just FOUR weeks left to claim their prize. The claim deadline for this prize is close of business on Thursday 24th of August.  

A National Lottery spokesperson has called on all Telly Bingo players in Cork to carefully check their old tickets from May to ensure that they do not miss out on claiming this outstanding prize.   

 “We are hoping to hear from a Telly Bingo player in Ballyvolane who scooped their share of a Snowball prize worth €27,505 in the Telly Bingo draw on the 26th of May. The winner purchased their ticket in Dunnes Stores in Ballyvolane Shopping Centre Cork City. As ticketholders have 90 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize, the last date to claim this prize is Thursday 24th of August, so we are encouraging all our players who purchased their ticket in the Dunnes Stores to check their old tickets very carefully.”  

“If you are the winner, please be sure to sign the back of your winning ticket and immediately contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and we will make arrangements for you to claim your prize.”
