Well, we know where we’re doing the lotto next time…
Euromillions players in Gorey and across county Wexford are today being urged to check their tickets carefully from last night’s draw after a Sunny South East player matched five numbers and one lucky star to win an incredible €122,344.
The Wexford winner purchased their winning Quick Pick ticket at Hammel’s Centra in the village of Kilmuckridge in Gorey, Co. Wexford.
The winning numbers for the Tuesday 8th March draw were: 12, 18, 21, 25, 31 and lucky stars 02, 09.
Speaking to Wexford Weekly, store owner Shay Hammell said he was thrilled to hear that one of his customers was the biggest winner in Tuesday night’s draw:
“The entire team working in the store will be delighted to hear that one of our customers has come into some good luck! Back in December 2020, we had another big EuroMillions win when we sold a ticket worth €500,000 in the EuroMillions Plus draw.”
“It’s great to hear of another customer now enjoying a big win. I’m sure we’ll see lots of our locals eager to check their tickets now as news spreads around the town. We wish the winner all the very best and hope they realise soon just how much their ticket is now worth!”
The Wexford winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket, which is now worth €122,344, and keep it safe. The winner should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email email@example.com and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.
As mentioned, it is not the first time that Hammell’s in Kilmuckridge has sold a winning lotto ticket. Last December, they sold a ticket worth over €500,000 to one lucky customer.
As there was no winner of the €17 million jackpot on offer in Tuesday night’s draw, Friday’s jackpot is now set to roll to an estimated €30 million.
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 2021 alone, €289 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
