There are just two weeks left for a Galway lotto player to claim their €22k prize, as they are now the last of dozens who have done so.

There were 36 Match 5 winners of the Christmas Day draw that netted each player an incredible €22,778 share of the prize fund, but only one remains unclaimed.

The winning ticket in Galway was sold at Mannion’s Mace on the Milltown Road in Tuam on Friday, December 24, 2021.

The winning numbers in the Christmas draw were 11, 17, 19, 23, 26, 43 and the bonus number was 31.

Ticketholders have just 90 days from the time of the draw to claim their prize, and the deadline for this incredible sum is Friday, March 25.

Galway lotto players are being encouraged to check their old tickets as soon as possible and to make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team to ensure they do not miss out of their €22,778 prize.

“With just two weeks left until the claim deadline for the December 25 Lotto draw, we are hoping to hear from the Galway winner very soon,” a National Lottery spokesperson said.

“We are urging all of our Lotto players who may have purchased their ticket on December 24 for the Christmas Day draw at Mannion’s Mace at the Top Service Station on the Milltown Road in Tuam, Co. Galway to check their tickets very carefully.”

“There is a ticket holder who is yet to claim €22,778 and the claim deadline is close of business on Friday, March 25.”

If you do find that you have the winning ticket, their advice is to sign the back of it immediately, and keep it safe.

The lucky winner should make contact by calling the prize claims team at 1800 666 222 or by emailing claims@lottery.ie to make arrangements.

Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage, and the Irish Language.

In total more than €6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 34 years ago. In 2021 alone, €289 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
