Christmas comes early for Kildare player who scooped €94,809 in last night’s Lotto draw

A player from Co. Kildare has got the month off to an amazing start after matching 5 numbers and the bonus in last night’s Lotto draw to scoop an incredible €94,809.

The winning quick pick ticket was sold on Sunday the 27th of November in Spar on Edward Street in Newbridge, Co. Kildare.

Joe Smart, Co-owner of the shop was over the moon to get the call from the National Lottery that his shop had sold the winning ticket: “It’s great, we’re absolutely delighted. I really hope it’s someone local, but we do get a lot of passing trade and people who live outside of the locality. We’re a small convenience store, open since 2007 and we’ve eight staff. This is our first big win and we’ve already posted about it on our Facebook page to remind customers to check their tickets!”, he said.

There’s already a great buzz amongst our staff and customers. We want to give massive congratulations to the winner. What a lovely time of year to get a prize like this”, he added.

The winning numbers in Wednesday’s (30th November) Lotto draw were: 2, 23, 30, 32, 35, 37 and the bonus was 9

There was no winner of the Lotto Jackpot on Wednesday night which was worth over €6,727,917. This means Saturday’s jackpot now rolls to an estimated €7 Million.

The Kildare ticketholder is advised to sign the back of their winning ticket and to keep it safe. The winner should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize. 

Meanwhile at Lotto HQ, there was joy for a Westmeath man and his family after he claimed a prize worth €500,000 which he won in the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday 22nd November.

The lucky Westmeath man won the EuroMillions Plus top prize of €500,000 with a Quick Pick ticket he purchased at Tuthill’s newsagents in the Golden Island Shopping Centre in Athlone town.

Discussing his plans for his win, the Westmeath native said:

“I’m still in a state of shock to be honest, the whole family are. It feels more real seeing the cheque worth a half million euro sitting in front of me. The one thing that we keep saying is that it’s going to be an amazing Christmas. We’ll have a nice break for the holidays, and we’ll get some proper spending plans in place after that. We have some bills to pay off such as the mortgage and after that, we might start looking at doing some work on the house. We’ll have to make a few decisions for sure but it’s an amazing position to be in, to be able to do that.”
