Mega Lotto prize remains unclaimed
Time is running out for a €4.1m Irish Lotto winner to claim their prize.
The lucky ticket holder, who scooped the major sum in the New Year’s Eve draw, has 90 days from December 31st to collect their prize before it is added to the unclaimed prize fund.
The winning numbers for the draw were 4, 11, 23, 30, 37, 44 and the bonus number was 32. The ticket was purchased from Chawke’s Centra and Texaco filling station on the Dublin Road in Castletroy, with the exact prize standing at €4,164,479.
Shop owner Tom Chawke has reported a rise in Lotto ticket sales since news of the win was made public.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “The sum is still outstanding but some people wait a few weeks before they come forward and others have a fear of the win being made public. Last year a Cork winner took just under three months to come forward.”
