Soldier of fortune! Retired professional soldier leads syndicate to €364,219 Lotto win in Wednesday night’s draw
Abbeyleix store celebrates as Laois syndicate come forward to claim €200,000 scratch card prize
It was a day of huge celebrations at Lotto HQ in Dublin after two separate syndicates from Dublin and Laois claimed in excess of €500,000 in combined prizes.
The biggest winners of the day was a syndicate comprised of a group of friends from Dublin who won Wednesday’s Lotto Match 5 + Bonus prize which was worth an incredible €364,219. The syndicate, which is headed up by a retired professional soldier, relived the excitement they experienced when they found out about their huge win late on Wednesday night.
“You will never meet a more deserving group of people to win a prize like this and I’m thrilled for the group,” said the head of the syndicate.
“I organise the Lotto tickets through my online lottery account and shortly after the draw, I received an email from the National Lottery telling me that I had some good news about my ticket. I didn’t get too carried away at first but once I opened the email and seen that the prize was worth over €350,000 – I was in complete shock! I knew they wouldn’t believe me at first so I took a picture of the screen on my phone and dropped it straight into the WhatsApp group so that they could share in the excitement straight away,” he said.
Also claiming a massive National Lottery prize was a jubilant syndicate from Co. Laois who were celebrating after they won €200,000 on a €10 All Cash Spectacular scratch card. The winning scratch card was purchased at Breslin’s SuperValu store in Abbeyleix, Co. Laois.
