Tipperary Strikes Lotto Luck Again! Winning Lotto Plus 1 ticket bought in Thurles

A lucky Tipperary player woke up to an early Christmas present on Sunday after scooping a €500,000 in Saturday night’s Lotto Plus 1 draw.

The National Lottery today appealed to p layers to check their tickets after Tipperary scored its second big Lotto win in the last few months.

The lucky quick pick ticket was purchased at McKevitt’s Costcutters, in Friar Street, Thurles.

The winning numbers were: 13, 23, 25, 27, 34, 39 and Bonus number 43.

In October, Easons in Thurles sold a mammoth €7.5 million Lotto Jackpot ticket which was won by a group of Tipperary pals. One of the syndicate members revealed when they claimed their prize recently she was so stunned she hid the winning ticket in a book for several days without telling anyone.

The owner of the shop that sold last night’s winning ticket, David McKevitt, said today he could not believe it when he heard the great news.

“This is our biggest ever lotto win. We sold a €25,000 winning ticket some years ago. There is huge excitement here today especially given the time of year we have! This will certainly make it a very happy Christmas for one of our customers.”

Approximately 30 cent in every euro spent on National Lottery games go back to Good Causes all over the country in the areas of health, sport, arts, heritage and the environment.
