The €12,740,043 Lotto jackpot winner has been in contact with Lotto offices who have confirmed that it is indeed the winning ticket.
A spokesperson for the Lotto told KilkennyNow.ie: “We had contact late last night from the winner.
“We had to wait till this morning to verify the ticket and we can confirm it is a winning ticket.
