The National Lottery has confirmed that a Wexford syndicate has come forward following their massive €1,000,500 Lotto Plus Raffle win in Saturday night’s draw. Arrangements are now being made for the winners to collect their prize in Lotto HQ. 

The winning ticket was sold at Wallace Costcutters in Wellingtonbridge, Co. Wexford and store manager Ger Cruise was over the moon to hear the news: “Well it’s certainly been a Bank Holiday weekend to remember following Saturday’s (3rd February) Lotto draw. We were thrilled to get the call from the National Lottery and to be honest ever since then, there’s been a great buzz around the town. Everyone is just delighted for the winners and we wish them all the very best with their huge win.”

The Sunny South East winners won the life-changing amount in a special event which saw a €1 Million boost to the Lotto Plus Raffle prize fund for the 3rd February draw.  

Each of the tickets with the winning Lotto Plus Raffle number drawn on Saturday night were entered into a once-off random draw where one ticket was selected to win an additional prize of €1 Million. While every ticket holder who had the winning Raffle number won €500, one ticketholder won €1 Million, in addition to the usual €500 prize.   

  Meanwhile, tomorrow night’s Lotto Jackpot is set to head towards an estimated €2.8 Million. Players dreaming of becoming the second Lotto Jackpot winner of 2024 are reminded that tickets can be purchased in-store nationwide, through the National Lottery app or at www.lottery.ie ahead of the 7:45pm cut-off time for sales on Wednesday evening.
