Could it be you? Mystery Kilkenny punter scoops almost €100k in lottery draw
A lucky local punter had a very Good Friday when they scopped €97,604 after matching five numbers in the EuroMillions draw.
The National Lottery has appealed for its players in Callan, Co. Kilkenny to check their tickets as this winning Quick Pick ticket was sold in Glynn’s Daybreak store at the Friary Walk Retail Park.
The winning numbers from the main EuroMillions draw were: 03, 10, 17, 33 and 39. The lucky star numbers were 01 and 04.
Glynn’s Daybreak owner Michael Glynn: “We’re absolutely delighted. It was a nice surprise to get the call from the National Lottery this morning as it’s our first major winner in the store! It’s a nice bit of news for the town too and hopefully, as most of our trade is from local people these days with people shopping closer to home, the winner is someone from Callan.”
With more than 51,000 winners in last night’s EuroMillions draws, the National Lottery has appealed to all of its players to check their tickets, particularly in Kilkenny where this ticket was old. There was no winner of the €53,434,751 EuroMillions jackpot.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “It’s not the Easter weekend that many of us would have planned but it sure was a Good Friday for one lucky person in Callan in Kilkenny who has won this nice €97,604 prize. We are asking all our Kilkenny EuroMillions players to check their tickets to see if they are the winner.
“We look forward to welcoming them to National Lottery HQ once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. If you are this lucky winner please sign the back of the ticket and contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize when it is safe to do so.”
