On the 13th of May, a Galway clan scooped the Lotto Plus 2 top prize worth €250,000 in that Saturday’s Lotto draw. The syndicate, who wish to keep their win private, purchased the winning quick pick ticket in the Fancy Fare store in Salthill, Co. Galway. The family discovered they’d won the jackpot prize two days after the draw. One of the syndicate members checked the winning numbers while sitting in their car; “I just thought I’d go on and have a look at the numbers. I started reading them and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I closed my eyes, then opened them and read the numbers over and over again. My stomach jumped and my whole body started to shake. I rang my other family members straight away to share the news and there was laughing, cheering and crying. Just pure joy and excitement”.
The winning ticket holder revealed the creative place in which they hid their ticket to keep it safe before travelling up to Lotto HQ to claim their prize.
“I was thinking where on earth am I going to hide this ticket, so I locked it in my filing cabinet until the day we had to travel up to the National Lottery to pick up the cheque. I then carefully transferred the ticket from the cabinet into my handbag and it was only when I was walking around Dublin, I realised that my cheap handbag worth €5 was now carrying around a ticket in it worth €250,000!”, they added. The syndicate are looking forward to sharing the prize with the wider family circle who are sure to appreciate it.
