Galway Lotto player matches 5 numbers + bonus in Saturday draw

Galway daily news galway syndicate claims 133,000 euro prize

Lotto players in Galway are being urged to check their tickets carefully today from Saturday night’s draw after two players matched five numbers and the bonus to share a prize fund worth €48,448.

The Galway player won their €24,224 share of the prize after buying their winning Quick Pick ticket on Saturday at Desmond Salmon on Patrick Street in Portumna.

A Dublin player also scooped their prize after purchasing their winning Quick Pick ticket on Friday 6 October at the Bus Stop Kiosk in the Nutgrove Shopping Centre in Dublin 14.

The winning numbers in the Saturday 7 October draw were: 23, 25, 28, 32, 33, 44 and the bonus was 29.

Both winners are advised to sign the back of their tickets and to keep them safe.

The win, just one number away from the €2 million jackpot, came after a lucky EuroMillions Plus player scooped €500,000 in Friday night’s draw.

“We are encouraging all of our Lotto players in Dublin and Galway to check their tickets carefully from Saturday night’s draw as two players now have tickets worth €24,224 each. Both players should sign the back of their tickets and make contact with our prize claims team,” said a spokesperson for the National Lottery.

While there was no winner of the jackpot in last night’s draw, over 85,000 players nationwide won prizes across the Lotto and Lotto Plus games. Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot is now set to roll towards an estimated €2.5 million.
