THE shop where a Lotto ticket worth €6.2 million was sold has been revealed.

A very lucky punter scooped a life-changing €6,197,310 in last night's draw.

The National Lottery has said that the golden ticket was sold at the Tesco Extra on Donore Road in Drogheda, County Louth.

The numbers drawn were 1, 7, 9, 18, 22, 33 and the bonus number is 17.

This is the second time that someone in the Wee County hit the Lotto jackpot this year.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “County Louth may be Ireland’s smallest county but when it comes to Lotto wins it is really punching above its weight. So far this year, half of our Lotto jackpot wins have come from the ‘wee county’.

“Louth has always done well when it comes to Lotto wins. A recent review conducted by the National Lottery shows Louth is the luckiest county.”

The National Lottery revealed that their “Luckiest Lotto Counties” survey showed that Louth has the most Lotto millionaires per head of population since the Lotto game was launched 32 years ago, with an average of 5.9 Lotto jackpot winners for every 10,000 people.

The spokesperson added: “We are calling on all our Lotto players in Louth, particularly those who play in Drogheda to carefully check their tickets to see if they have won this life-changing prize.

“If it is you, be sure to sign the back of the ticket, keep this valuable piece of paper safe and contact our prize claims team on 01 836 4444 and we will make arrangements for you to come to the National Lottery to get your prize”.
