Celebrations are well underway in a local community on the outskirts of Wexford town after the National Lottery held a special event at a family run service station to celebrate last Saturday’s Lotto Plus 1 top prize win of €1 million…
The winner, who purchased their life-changing Lotto ticket at Maxol Killeens on Newline Road in Wexford Town has made contact with the National Lottery.
Arrangements are now being made for them to collect their prize when they will officially become the 33rd National Lottery millionaire of 2023.
Speaking to Wexford Weekly, Tony and Sarah Butler who operate the store were overjoyed to find out that Maxol Killeens had sold the winning ticket worth €1 million.
“It’s just brilliant for absolutely everybody in the community. It’s especially sweet for us as the business has been a part of our family for over 30 years and to get a big lottery win for one of our customers is just the icing on the cake. We believe that the winner has already been in touch so whoever they are, I know that the entire local community will be wishing them every success with their new found fortune,” they said.
Meanwhile, with just hours to go until tonight’s €65 million (estimated) EuroMillions draw, the National Lottery is reminding players hoping to win big tonight that tickets can be purchased ahead of the 7.30pm cut-off time for sales in-store, at www.lottery.ie or via the National Lottery app.
A National Lottery spokesperson said:
“The countdown is on for tonight’s €65 million (estimated) draw with excitement building for EuroMillions players all over the country. If a player in Ireland was to win the staggering jackpot tonight, they would take the title of 18th Irish EuroMillions jackpot winner ever seen in Ireland. As we get closer to the draw, don’t forget that tickets can be purchased in-store, at www.lottery.ie or via the National Lottery app ahead of the cut-off time for sales at 7.30pm this evening.”
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 36 years ago. In 2022 alone, €259 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland. Play National Lottery games responsibly, play for fun.
