Most people who discover their lotto ticket is worth $1.000.000 want to shout it from the rooftops – but not one secretive Cork resident. He hasn’t told a soul about his impressive windfall, but that is about to change one of these days.
The anonymous man from Cork bought a ticket for Irish Lotto draw on October 24th from the Costcutters Store, located at the N20 Mallow Plaza on the Limerick Road, Mallow. Despite failing to hit the main jackpot, the lucky lotto aficionado correctly guessed the numbers 8, 15, 22, 32, 34 and 41 in the Lotto Plus 1 draw.
He ended up scooping €1.000.000, but it took him a while to discover his ticket was worth a fortune. The Cork resident decided to check his numbers after hearing about an unclaimed prize in his area almost a month after the draw took place.
That was when it suddenly dawned on him to check his numbers – and he was up for a surprise. The anonymous man realized his ticket was worth €1.000.000 and described this moment as a huge shock to the system. As a matter of fact, it was such an enormous shock that he’s still trying to come up with a way to share it with his loved ones.
After collecting his windfall in Dublin, the fortunate man admitted he still hasn’t fully comprehended the scope of his victory. He’s currently looking forward to sharing the news with his family, because they’re a close-knit circle and he won’t be able to keep it a secret for too long. The Cork resident added he’s already making long-term plans for the future, and intends to surprise his loved ones very soon.
