Lucky Kilkenny woman scoops €350,000 in the Lotto

A KILKENNY woman got the shock of her life at the weekend but it wasn’t caused by Halloween ghosts. Instead it was thanks to a winning Lotto Plus ticket. She matched the first six numbers drawn in Saturday’s Lotto Plus 1 draw and won €350,000.

A KILKENNY woman got the shock of her life at the weekend but it wasn’t caused by Halloween ghosts. Instead it was thanks to a winning Lotto Plus ticket. She matched the first six numbers drawn in Saturday’s Lotto Plus 1 draw and won €350,000.

The happy winner, who wished to keep the win private, picked up her cheque at National Lottery offices this week. “When I first checked the ticket, I thought I’d won €5,000 and was delighted. But then I rechecked it and realised I’d actually won €350,000. I got such a shock. Up ‘til now, the most I’d won was €12,” said the delighted winner.

She continued: “I lost count of the number of times I rechecked my numbers. I got such a thrill to see ‘one winner’ knowing that one winner was me. It’s a great amount to win, especially with Christmas around the corner and I’ll definitely pay off my bills and loans.” The regular player bought her lucky €10 Quick Pick ticket in Topaz Service Station, Castlecomer Road, Kilkenny on Friday.
