Midlands winner in Lotto  scoops €1million over weekend

A midlands Lotto player scooped €1 million after winning the Lotto Plus 1 top prize.

This morning the West is certainly awake as a lucky Lotto player in the Galway suburb town of Doughiska has won last night’s Lotto jackpot of €4,051,610.

A Longford Lotto player fell one number short of sharing the Lotto jackpot, matching five numbers and the bonus ball, but still picked up a cool €238,673.

The winning Lotto jackpot ticket, worth more than €4 million was sold at Joyce’s Supermarket, Doughiska Shopping Centre, Doughiska Road, Galway. Doughiska is a suburb less than 10 kilometres from Galway city centre.

A delighted store owner of Joyce’s Supermarket, Pat Joyce said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have sold the winning jackpot ticket and it’s fantastic news for our customers in the Doughiska community. We’ve been spreading the good news to our locals this morning and getting them to check their Lotto tickets. Doughiska is a lovely place, one that has grown a lot in terms of population in recent years and is a multicultural town so I’m really hoping that the winner is a local.”

This is the 93rd Lotto jackpot to be won in Co. Galway since Lotto began more than 30 years ago and this is the the fifth Lotto jackpot to be won so far in 2019. The winning numbers of last night’s main Lotto draw were: 9, 10, 34, 37, 40, 47 and the bonus number was 7.
