A National Lottery spokesperson said it hopes to reveal the name and the location of the winning store which sold the €6.9 million Lotto jackpot in the next couple of days and said:
“With a jackpot win of this amount, it is important that we take some time to inform the winning retailer and of course to give the winning ticketholder the time and space they need to let this amazing win sink in so we will be announcing the winning store in the coming days," the spokesperson said.
