A trip to Disneyland, a Caribbean cruise, a giant TV and a popcorn maker- wish list of new Lotto millionaires
12 Oct 2015
A young Dublin family who scooped a €7m Lotto jackpot say they're going to splash out on an indoor slide with their winnings. The mum and dad, both in their 40s, were accompanied by their young children as they collected their winnings at Lotto HQ in Dublin. The couple, who wish to remain private, said they were completely overwhelmed after realising they won the Lotto jackpot worth a staggering €7,384,790. The couple purchased their ticket - a €40 Quick Pick play ticket for eight draws - in the Super Valu store in Killiney Shopping Centre, Rochestown Avenue, Dun Laoghaire on Sepember 15th last. Incidentally, the couple also won a €3 scratchcard. The happy couple and their family have also been thinking about their dream shopping list for the past week and it includes "a trip to Disneyland in Florida, followed by a cruise in Jamaica; an indoor slide (‘so we can get downstairs quicker’); a new car; find dream house and pay off mortgage immediately; a pin ball machine and a popcorn maker; an immediate trip to Harvey Norman to check out gigantic screens for a new home cinema; and finally (for the moment) a trip to Venezuela to see the fantastic lightening storms’." The husband, who works in sales, said: "We’re going to look after our family and friends, and donate to an animal charity, as it’s a cause close to our hearts. We’re looking forward to being secret Good Samaritans, and doing some philanthropic work when we see a need."
