Prosperous win for Lotto couple
A LOTTO ticket bought 'on a whim' has led to a pre-Christmas windfall for one lucky couple.
The €4 Quick-Pick ticket purchased on the day of the draw netted the couple €350,000 with the winning numbers for the Lotto Plus One prize on November 20.
The ticket was bought at the Mace shop, in Prosperous, Co Kildare, but the winners, who are from the county, have chosen to keep their identities private.
As they picked up the prize money yesterday they said they couldn't believe their luck and were going to take some time before making any big decisions on how to spend the windfall.
