National Lottery urges Cork players to check their tickets after Saturday night’s €2.4 million Lotto win
One lucky Lotto player in Cork is waking up to the fact that they are over €2.4 million richer this morning after the National Lottery confirmed that one ticketholder in the Rebel county scooped Saturday night’s Lotto jackpot worth €2,469,871. The National Lottery also confirmed that it plans to reveal the location of Ireland’s latest Lotto jackpot win in the coming days.
Incredibly this is the second Lotto jackpot win in the space of a week following the €6.4 million win in Athlone on Saturday 22nd May. Following last night’s Lotto jackpot win, the National Lottery is now encouraging all its Lotto players, especially in Co. Cork to carefully check their tickets to see if they are Ireland’s newest Lotto millionaire..
“This is why we love our Lotto game – celebrations have only started to quieten down following last Saturday’s €6.4 million win in Athlone and now we have yet another newly minted millionaire in Co. Cork to celebrate! This is the seventh millionaire to be made in the Lotto game in 2021 so we are urging all of our players in Cork to check their tickets carefully to see if they are the lucky winner. If you are the winner, stay calm and be sure to sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place. They should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize,”
the Lottery spokesperson said.
The winning numbers for Saturday night’s €2,469,871 Lotto jackpot are: 09, 15, 28, 34, 39, 46 and bonus number is 26.
Furthermore, the National Lottery is continuing to urge Lotto players in Athlone and Castlebar to check their tickets carefully from last Saturday’s draw. One lucky Westmeath player has a ticket worth €6.4 million after scooping the 22nd May jackpot while a player in Mayo has a ticket worth €1 million after winning the top prize in the Lotto Plus 1 draw on the same night. Neither player has come forward yet.
Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage and the Irish Language. In total more than €6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 34 years ago. In 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
