The owners of the store where one lucky punter in Galway scored a €120k Lotto prize weekend said that they said that they are “delighted” with the news and wish the best for winner.

A ticket sold at Minihane’s Supervalu on Church Street in Gort won a lucky player €120,441 after matching 5 numbers and the Bonus Number in Saturday night’s Lotto draw.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at Minihane’s on the same day as the draw.

Peter Minihane and his wife Fiona O’Driscoll have owned the SuperValu in Gort for the last fifteen years.

“We were delighted to receive the call that our family-run shop sold the winning Match 5 + Bonus ticket,” Peter Minihane said.

“Our store employs over 70 members of staff so we’re certain that excitement will grow around the shop and the town as soon as word starts to spread.”

“It’s great news for the community and we hope that the winner really enjoys their win.”

The winning numbers in Saturday night’s draw were 04, 27, 37, 43, 44, 46 and the bonus number was 32.

The owner of the winning ticket is being advised to sign the back of their ticket and to get in touch with the National Lottery claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.

There were over 105,000 prize winners in Saturday night’s draw, but no-one claimed the €8,697,641 jackpot on offer.

This will now roll over to Wednesday’s draw which, with an estimated prize in the region of €9 million, will be the largest jackpot up for grabs this year.

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 €5.8 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 33 years ago. In 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
