RESIDENTS on the south side of Cork City have been urged to carefully check their Lotto tickets after the National Lottery confirmed that the winning ticket for Saturday’s €6.9 million jackpot was sold on the outskirts of Cork City.
It was also confirmed that the winning ticketholder has yet to make contact with Lotto HQ to make arrangements to claim their prize.
The National Lottery plan to announce the lucky winning store tomorrow and in light of restrictions still in place due to COVID-19, it has appealed to the general public and the media not to unnecessarily attend the store outside of government guidance currently in place.
This latest Lotto win is the 6th jackpot win this year with over €30 million won in jackpot prizes alone.
In 2020, over €67 million has been won in prizes in the Lotto game which includes 11 new millionaires which have been created in the Lotto and Lotto Plus games.
