Two Telly Bingo players share €100,000 Snowball prize in Tuesday afternoon draw

Telly Bingo players in Kildare and Westmeath urged to check their tickets!

It was a Tuesday afternoon to remember for two Telly Bingo players in Kildare and Westmeath who shared the astonishing €100,000 Snowball prize on offer in today’s draw. 

Over the past two weeks, anticipation has been building in the Telly Bingo game as the Snowball prize has continued to roll. On Tuesday 12th September, the National Lottery added €40,000 to the Snowball prize fund for the Super September Snowball promotion and as there has been no Snowball winner since then, the prize continued to roll. 

The Kildare winner scooped €50,120, which included a XCross prize in addition to the Snowball, after purchasing their ticket at Donovan’s Centra in Greenfields Shopping Centre in Maynooth. The Westmeath player won their €50,000 share of the Snowball, as well as a €5 lucky line prize, after purchasing their ticket at Dunnes Stores in Irishtown, Athlone.  

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “It’s been an exciting two weeks for Telly Bingo players all over the country with the Snowball prize rolling since Tuesday 12th September. Today’s game saw two players in Kildare and Westmeath celebrating after sharing the €100,000 prize fund on offer. We are now encouraging all of our players who may have purchased their tickets at Donovan’s Centra in Greenfields Shopping Centre in Maynooth and at Dunnes Stores in Irishtown, Athlone to check their tickets very carefully. The winners are advised to sign the back of their tickets and to keep them safe. They should contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to collect their prizes.”

The Telly Bingo game on RTÉ One gives players the chance to play Bingo in their own homes at 12.45pm every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at a cost of €2.50. Players hoping to be in with a chance of winning in in the next game on Thursday  are reminded that tickets can be purchased in-store ahead of the 11am deadline for ticket sales on Thursday morning.  

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. In total more than €6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 36 years ago. In 2022 alone, €259 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
