Do you know that feeling when your favourite lotto draw is about to close and you still haven’t bought a ticket? One Munster resident certainly does. He’s no stranger to playing the lottery at the very last minute, and one of the tickets he bought in the nick of time led him to an incredible €6.600.000 victory.
Fortunate man collected this impressive jackpot with his family, after correctly guessing the main numbers 9, 15, 17, 24, 41 and 43 in the Irish Lotto draw on December 8th. This prize almost slipped through his fingers because he’d completely forgotten to buy a ticket.
The anonymous man realized he made a mistake 30 minutes before the draw, and it was too late to run to the store. He decided to play online instead, but had to top up his account because there just wasn’t enough money to make a purchase. Everything worked out for the best, and he managed to buy a ticket that made him €6.600.000 richer.
Munster resident read the news about an online player hitting the jackpot the very next morning. He didn’t think much of it, and didn’t feel like checking his numbers right away. The jackpot winner finally decided to do it after receiving an email from the National Lottery. He expected to scoop a couple of euros, but found himself staring at a bunch of zeroes on the screen.
His family isn’t in a rush to spend the money, and they’ll try to process this incredible victory over the course of the next few weeks. They intend to have the best Christmas ever and clear their mortgage and bills once the New Year rolls around.
