Lucky ticket sold In Cork
Deadline for claim: Friday 31 March
The winner(s) of the €1 million National Lottery Christmas Millionaire Raffle has just a few days left to claim their prize. The deadline of Friday 31 March is fast approaching.
The Christmas Millionaire top prize winning ticket of €1 million, was ticket number 179740. The lucky ticket was purchased at the Topaz Service Station on Lower Tivoli Road in Cork on 21 December 2016.
Speaking at the winning Topaz Services Station on Tivoli Road in Cork, National Lottery Head of Marketing, Michael Hayes said, ‘With just a week to go until the prize claim deadline on Friday March 31, we are reminding all players to check their tickets. The ticket was purchased in the run up to the busy Christmas shopping period. Millionaire Raffle tickets are a popular gift at Christmas time so we would appeal to all of those who may have bought a ticket as a gift or who may have received a ticket from a loved one to check their tickets for a chance of claiming a life-changing prize of €1 million.’
In 2016 alone, Topaz Fuels and their customers have contributed almost €10.5 million to support Good Causes and local community projects nationwide through sales of National Lottery products.
‘It’s fantastic for Topaz Tivoli to have the honour of selling a winning lottery ticket, but it’s nothing without a winner. We are very hopeful that the ticket is found and someone can enjoy a late Christmas present. It would be great to welcome a newly-crowned millionaire customer back to the store’, said Topaz Tivoli Store Manager Niall Buckley.
Throughout the 30 year history of the National Lottery, players have often left it late to claim prizes with some coming forward on the last day. In August 2016, a lucky Cork family syndicate claimed a massive €381,863 EuroMillions Prize just one hour before the prize claim deadline following an extensive media campaign.
Ticketholders have 90 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize in person at National Lottery Headquarters on Abbey Street in Dublin.
