The manager of a shop where Ireland’s newest millionaire bought their lucky Lotto ticket yesterday is urging locals to check their numbers as he believes they live in the area. 

There were two big winners on Wednesday as separate players in Dublin scooped two huge prizes in the bumper €7.5 million draw.

But the biggest winner of the night was a lucky Lotto player in Citywest in Dublin 24 who became the latest National Lottery millionaire after winning the Lotto Plus 1 top prize of €1 million.

Warren Brennan, the manager of the Belfry Spar store where the winning Quick Pick ticket was sold said there is huge excitement.

He urged local residents to check their tickets because it is more likely that the winner will be from the area.

“The staff in the store are absolutely buzzing, knowing that somebody who came into the store yesterday is now a millionaire, it’s truly incredible,” he said.

“The store is situated in the heart of a large residential area here in Citywest so the likelihood is that one of the local residents is a brand new millionaire. Whoever they are, we wish them every bit of luck with their million euro win.”

While the South Dublin store welcomes its €1 million Lotto Plus 1 win, another online Lotto player in Dublin scooped €112,078 after coming just one number short of €7.5 million jackpot.

Next Saturday’s jackpot prize is heading for an estimated €8 million because while there were 84,000 prize winners in last night’s Lotto draw, there was no winner of the €7.5 million jackpot.

A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “It was a bumper night of winnings for a large number of players in Wednesday night’s Lotto draw.

“We are asking all of our players to check their tickets to see if they have won a prize. For our players who play online, if you have won the €112,078 prize, an email will be waiting in your inbox with this brilliant news. If you are one of the big winners, please contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize.”

The winning Lotto numbers for last night's draw were: 10, 15, 18, 23, 28, 33 and bonus number 38.

The winning Lotto Plus 1 numbers which are worth €1 million to one lucky player are: 17, 20, 29, 33, 37, 42 and bonus number 16.
