Lotto player who bought winning ticket in Sligo filling station has days left to claim €36,687 prize
A Lotto player who bought their ticket at the Hilltop Service Station in Culleens, Co Sligo, has just days to come forward to claim their prize.
The Sligo player scooped their €36,687 prize in the Saturday 15th January draw after purchasing a Lotto Match 5 + Bonus ticket at the filling station.
As ticketholders have 90 days from the draw date to claim their prize, the claim deadline for the Lotto Match 5+Bonus prize is close of business on Friday 15th April 2022.
The winning Lotto numbers for the Saturday 15th January 2022 draw were: 02, 09, 16, 30, 37, 40 and the bonus 23.
Saturday 15th January marked the historic ‘Will be Won’ event in which a player in Mayo won the largest jackpot ever seen in the Lotto game in Ireland.
As the Lotto jackpot was capped at €19.06 million, the funds that would usually go to the jackpot flowed down to the next highest tier at which there was a winner and in that draw, this was the Match 5 + Bonus prize tier. 149 players all over Ireland shared a prize fund of almost €5.5 million at the Match 5+Bonus prize tier to win €36,687 each.
A National Lottery spokesperson has appealed to Lotto players in Sligo to check their tickets urgently to ensure that they do not miss the upcoming deadline to claim their prize.
