A Dublin shop owner has said that they are “thrilled” to have sold a winning Lotto ticket this month.

The winning ticket for last Saturday’s €5,365,262 Lotto jackpot was sold on Wednesday 9th March at Chapter & Verse on Lower Leeson Street, Dublin 2, just off St Stephen’s Green.

The Dublin player became the third Lotto jackpot winner of the year after winning the huge amount on Saturday night.

Store manager Eoin Ryan was delighted to get the call from the National Lottery and to hear that one of his customers had become a millionaire at the weekend.

“What a call to receive!” he said.

“We were thrilled to hear that we sold last weekend’s jackpot ticket and of course quite shocked too. We have nine staff here in the shop and they will all be over the moon to hear that one of our customers has won over €5 million.

“There is definitely a great buzz around the place and I’m sure the excitement will continue as the news spreads to our customers over the next few days.

“During the pandemic, it was quieter with people working from home and of course in the past few weeks as staff return to the offices nearby, things are getting busy again so it’s good timing for the win. Fingers crossed the winner realises just how lucky they have been soon!”

The National Lottery are continuing to appeal to Lotto players to check their tickets carefully from Saturday night as the jackpot winner is yet to make contact.

The Dublin winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it safe. They should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their life-changing prize.
