The Irish luck was strong on Wednesday night as it was announced that the Lotto jackpot had been won.
And to make it better still, it was announced that the winning ticket was sold in Dublin.
Today, the shop where it was sold has been released by the National Lottery.
They confirmed that a Spar Express on Rathfarnham Road in Dublin 14 sold the winning golden ticket.
Staff were overjoyed at news of their life changing win.
“We simply can’t believe it! This is our first big Lotto win and staff and customers are buzzing with excitement,” shop owner, Ken O’Connor, said.
“We are on a lucky run as we recently sold a Scratch Card that won a customer €25,000. But this is amazing, we are hoping it is somebody local but we are a busy shop with a lot of passing traffic so we don’t know.
A National Lottery spokesperson appealed to all its Dublin players to check their tickets to see if they are holders of this golden ticket.
The winning numbers are: 1, 15, 22, 27, 31, 34 and bonus number 42.
This is the tenth Lotto jackpot win of 2018 and the first since the Lotto Plus game enhancements were introduced on 1st September. So far this year, in excess of €50 million has been paid out in Lotto jackpot prizes alone.
Since the introduction of the new Lotto Plus game enhancements last month, an incredible 848,000 Lotto players throughout the country have won prizes. Last night’s Lotto draws alone produced over 72,000 winners.
