‘Appy Days as Online Player Collects €250,000

Lotto Plus 2 Online Win

A lucky Lotto Plus 2 top prize winner who arrived at Lottery HQ this week was an ecstatic lady from Co. Carlow who won the €250,000 prize with a ticket she bought on the National Lottery App on Wednesday 29th August. 

“Usually, I would win a few bob here and there playing the Lotto online so I’d regularly get the email from the National Lottery stating that they have some good news about my ticket. I was getting used to logging and finding out that I had won a tenner and other small amounts like that so I wasn’t overly excited about my latest email! When I eventually logged in to my account, my jaw nearly hit the floor when I saw that there was a €250,000 prize waiting for me,” said the Carlow native.

Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games go back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, community, arts, heritage and the Irish language. In total more than €5 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 30 years ago.
