National Lottery appeal to Dublin players to check their tickets as winner is yet to come forward.
The National Lottery are urging players in Dublin to check their Lotto tickets after it was confirmed that last Wednesday’s Lotto Plus 1 top prize of €1 million was won in Dublin 12. The Dublin winner became Ireland’s 29th lottery millionaire of the year with a ticket they purchased at the Spar store in St. Agnes Park in Crumlin on Dublin’s southside.
Owner of the winning store, Brian Ferris said: “I’ve owned the store for five years now and this is our second big win in three years which is absolutely incredible! Our last one was a €500,000 EuroMillions Plus win. The locals will be delighted when news gets out and I’m sure we’ll see lots of them eager to check their tickets. I know the winner hasn’t been in touch yet so hopefully when word spreads, they’ll check their ticket and be on to the National Lottery soon!”
As Ireland’s newest millionaire has yet to come forward, the National Lottery have advised players in Dublin 12 to check their tickets carefully and if they are the big winner, they should sign their ticket and make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.
