COULD it have been you? Last night’s €5.3m Lotto was won in the Mid-West, and the national lottery office has confirmed this morning that the winning ticket was purchased yesterday in Ennis.
The grand total prize of €5,318,670 was won on the back of a €7.50 quick-pick, purchased in Thomas O’Keefe’s shop in Roslevan in Ennis.
The numbers on the winning ticket from Wednesday night’s draw were 5, 7, 10, 18, 41 and 47. The bonus number was 44.
There were no winners of the Lotto plus 1 and 2 draws worth €500,000 and €250,000 respectively.
The number of overall Lotto prize draw winners has fallen since the game was changed in September but the amount of money given out in prizes has increased, according to the operators.
Earlier this month, a south Dublin couple collected their jackpot win of more than €7.3m from a draw held in September.
The couple bought the winning ticket in Dún Laoghaire, Co Dublin on September 15, but did not realise they had won until almost two weeks later.
Their €40 quick pick ticket was valid for eight draws, but the pair won the jackpot on the second draw night, September 19, along with a €3 Scratchcard.
