A Claremorris lotto player came one number short of winning the Lotto jackpot of €6,363,763 at the weekend.
Lotto players in the area are being asked to check their tickets from last night’s draw after someone won the Lotto Match 5 + Bonus prize of €110,240.
While there were over 104,000 prize winners in Saturday night’s draw, there was no winner of the Lotto jackpot, which rolls to an estimated €6.8 million on Wednesday.
The winning numbers from last night’s Lotto draw are: 21, 28, 32, 33, 43, 47 and the bonus number is 40.
The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased last Friday at Kavanagh’s SuperValu on the Square in Claremorris, Co. Mayo.
Assistant Manager in the winning SuperValu, Natalija Burlacenko said, "We got the all-important call from the National Lottery this morning and I think we're still in a bit of shock - god only knows how our lucky customer feels, it’s just brilliant! It’s our first big Lotto win in the store and there is great excitement in the town already as news of the win spreads. There has been no news from the winner yet but we have been encouraging all of our customers to check their tickets carefully and whoever the winner is, we hope that they thoroughly enjoy it.”
