Bettystown Lucky Lotto player who matched five numbers and bonus number collects €160,656 in winnings



A Lotto player from Bettystown who matched five numbers and the bonus to win €160,656 visited National Lottery headquarters recently to claim his prize.

The lucky player matched five numbers and the bonus in the May 29 Lotto draw after buying their ticket at Tesco Narrow Ways on Eastham Road in Bettystown.

“I watched the Lotto draw live that night. I watched the first three numbers come out and then went into the kitchen to make a cup of tea. I would have resisted if I had known what was about to happen, but of course you don’t think you’re about to win a huge prize just like that. When I returned to the living room with the glass and chocolate in hand, I just couldn’t believe my luck. I’ve been playing Lotto since the game started and I don’t think I ever thought I’d win this much.”

Winner Meath already have some plans in place to capitalize on their profit. “Home improvements are at the top of the list. There is always an ongoing list of what needs to be done, so this will make a big difference there. I can’t wait to trade in my car too, so the win really came at the perfect time.”
