National Lottery players were on a winning streak today (Wednesday), as four separate winning ticket holders claimed a combined total of €730,822 in prize money across Lotto and National Lottery scratch card games.
A Laois family syndicate had earlier collected a cool €500,000 after they hit the Lotto Plus 1 jackpot on Wednesday June 29.
Two separate winners from Co. Laois and Co. Cork are also celebrating after they both picked up a cheque for €90,411 after they shared the Match 5 + Bonus prize with one other Lotto player from Co. Meath on Wednesday 06 July.
The three winning ticket holders have all shared the Match 5 + Bonus prize of €271,233.

The lucky Lotto player from Co. Cork who also wishes to remain private, bought his ticket at the Eurospar on Market Street in Skibbereen, Co. Cork.
