Tipperary has a new millionaire as lucky Lotto player scoops €1 million Lotto Plus prize

County Tipperary is home to Ireland’s latest millionaire this morning after a lucky Lotto player scooped a cool €1,000,000 on last night’s Lotto Plus 1 draw (Wednesday 8th May).

The winner purchased their golden Quick Pick ticket at the Applegreen store in Moangarrif, Clonmel in Co. Tipperary.

The delighted store manager of the Applegreen station, Kieran O’Neill, said: “It’s really good news for the town. We have a lot of local customers from Moangarrif and the wider Clonmel area, with a lot of local businesses, factories and a stud farm nearby so we really do hope it is one of our regulars who has won the million euro. We have been spreading the word to all our customers since early doors this morning, getting them to check their tickets and spreading the good news, but whoever it is – I wish them the very best of luck!”

Last night’s winning Lotto Plus 1 numbers were: 2, 4, 13, 17, 23, 27 and the bonus ball was 26.

A National Lottery spokesperson said today: “This is amazing news for a lucky Lotto player in Tipperary and it is the fourth Lotto Plus 1 millionaire made this year alone and the seventh millionaire across all our Lotto games in 2019 . If you are this lucky winner be sure to sign the back of your ticket and get in touch with our prize claims team on 01 836 4444 and we will make arrangements for you to come to the National Lottery Winner’s Room to get your prize”.

There was no winner of last night’s €4,779,975 Lotto jackpot which now rolls to an estimated €5.5 million for next Saturday’s draw (11th May).  Play in-store, online or using the National Lottery App on your smartphone for your chance to win the highest Lotto jackpot of the year so far.

Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on National Lottery games go back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts and heritage. In total more than €5.4 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 31 years ago. In 2018 alone, the National Lottery raised over €227 million for such good causes.
