A player from Co Offaly has become the biggest winner of last night’s Lotto draw after scooping €225,634.

The winning quick pick ticket was sold on Monday in Spar at Barack Obama Plaza in Moneygall. The winning player matched five numbers and the bonus.

Operations manager Henry Healy said he was “ecstatic” when he discovered the shop sold the winning ticket.

“Ah look its fantastic news, we’re here eight years here and this is the largest win for us so far. I didn’t even bother checking my own ticket, I don’t even win arguments, let alone the Lotto,” he laughed.

“We’re a very busy motorway service station so we’ve a high footfall. While speculation is rife its someone local, it could easily be someone who was passing by, who didn’t realise their win until they landed home.

“It’s a great boost for us here, there will plenty of conversations and speculation over the next few days. We’re delighted one of our customers won and that one of staff members made someone’s day extra special.”

The winning numbers in Wednesday’s Lotto draw were: 9, 21, 22, 24, 30, 46 and the bonus was 5

There was no winner of the Lotto Jackpot on Wednesday night which was worth over €5,912,949. This means Saturday’s jackpot now rolls to an estimated €6.5 Million.

The Offaly ticketholder has been advised to sign the back of their winning ticket and to keep it safe.

The winner should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.
