A Laois Lotto Jackpot winner was celebrating in Lotto HQ this week after collecting their life-changing cheque worth €2,294,855 which they won online in the Wednesday 11th October draw.
The winner admitted that it was a few days before they realised their win: “To think I was walking around for a few days without any idea that I was a Lotto Jackpot winner! I have played online for a few years now so I am used to seeing messages and notifications about smaller prizes. When I saw the message for this one, I didn’t think anything of it at first, so I logged in as usual and immediately got a huge shock seeing the amount looking back at me. It certainly feels surreal to even be sitting here in the Winners’ Room but the next plan is to take a holiday to celebrate and let the news sink in.”
Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage, and the Irish Language. In total more than €6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 36 years ago. In 2022 alone, €259 Million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
