It was a day to remember for a lucky work syndicate from Co. Laois who travelled to Dublin to collect their Lotto Plus 2 top prize of €250,000 which they won on Saturday 5th August. The syndicate waited well over a month to initially make contact with the National Lottery to make arrangements to take their prize and their syndicate leader told how his unusual Lotto routine delayed his colleagues prize claim for weeks on end! 

“It’s been an incredibly exciting couple of weeks. Some people might say that I have a strange routine with my lottery tickets. I buy my weekly ticket and I always wait a couple of weeks until I check them. It allows me to daydream for a little longer with the hope that I could potentially have a winning lottery ticket worth a couple of million euro in my wallet. On this occasion, shortly after the draw, somebody told me that the Lotto Plus 2 top prize was sold exactly where I bought the ticket for the syndicate. My ears cocked up immediately and I thought, oh hello, the chances of me having this winning ticket could actually be a reality. Any normal person would have checked their ticket straight away but I still managed to hold out for nearly two weeks before I actually checked the ticket. It was only when I read that the winner of the prize still hadn’t come forward to claim it that I knew I just had to check it. All that anticipation and build up was all the sweeter when I checked it to see we had won the €250,000 prize,” said the syndicate leader. 

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.
