A Roscommon man collected a cheque for €101,947 from National Lottery HQ yesterday after matching five numbers plus the Bonus number in last Wednesday’s Draw.
The east Roscommon man was one of two people whose numbers came up; the other lucky winner coming from Cork.
Speaking after collecting his cheque the man, who wishes to remain anonymous, said “On the Wednesday night after the Draw, I was fast asleep in bed until I woke up at 2am. I was lying in bed trying to get back to sleep but I had an incredible nagging sensation which told me to get out of bed and check my Lotto ticket. It was an un-explainable feeling, not something I have ever felt before so I got out of bed and I turned on the television to check the numbers. As I saw my numbers all in a row, I just stood there in a state of complete and utter disbelief.”
“This is a very timely win just before Christmas. We are going to enjoy the next couple of weeks without having to worry about money before we decide what to do with our winnings.”
The winning Ticket, which was Quick Pick, was bought in the Daybreak Store in Ballyleague. For the record, the numbers drawn were 1, 5, 24, 34, 39, 41 and the Bonus Number was 20.
Wednesday’s Jackpot was not won and tonight’s Jackpot was €11,345,002. The numbers drawn were 2, 6, 21, 23, 29 and 44 and the Bonus Number was 41 and there was one winner.
