A National Lottery spokesperson said: “National Lottery players in the Rebel County have had lots to celebrate in recent weeks with Cork currently holding the title for National Lottery millionaires for 2022 so far. Just a few weeks ago, we saw two Cork players scoop €1 million each in the special EuroMillions Raffle after purchasing their tickets in two separate stores in West Cork located just 20km apart. And now a Lotto player in Cork has become the county’s latest National Lottery top prize winner and millionaire after scooping Wednesday night’s Lotto Plus 1 top prize of €1 million.”
“We are appealing to all of our Lotto players in Cork to check their midweek Lotto tickets very carefully as one player has a ticket worth €1 million. The winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and to keep it safe. They should make contact with our prize claims team as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made for them to claim their prize.”
