I didn’t check the ticket for a couple of days, it just totally went out my head, but I went back to the shop a couple of days later and the girl that scanned my ticket said, you’ll have to call the National Lottery. I knew then I’d won something big enough maybe €20,000 or so. I called them up and was told I’d won €500,000! All I said back to them was, deadly! I then rang my wife to tell her the news and I was met with dead silence on the other side of the phone. For once in her life she was speechless”, laughed the winner.
