Galway Daily news €19 million Lotto jackpot winner in the west comes forward

One lotto player in the west could lose out on a €22,872 prize if they don’t claim it before the deadline by the end of the month.

A lotto player won the Match 5 prize in the draw on Wednesday, October 27 last, with a ticket sold in Claremorris, Co. Mayo.

But the 90 day deadline to claim their prize by January 25 is coming up, and the National Lottery is urging players to check their tickets.

The winning ticket was sold at  the Centra store on Lower James Street in Claremorris.

The winning Lotto numbers for the draw on Wednesday, October 27 were: 03, 11, 25, 32, 40, 45 and the Bonus: 05.

A spokesperson for the National Lottery said “We are urging any of our Lotto players in Mayo who may have purchased their Lotto tickets for the 27th October draw at the Centra store on James Street in Claremorris to carefully check their tickets.”

“There is a Match 5 prize worth €22,872 which remains unclaimed, and we are hoping to hear from the winner soon as the last date to claim is 25th January.”

“If you are this lucky winner, please be sure to sign the back of your ticket and contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie as soon as possible. We will then make arrangements for you to claim your prize.”

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 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.

The €19 million Lotto jackpot is up for grabs once again this Wednesday evening, remaining unclaimed for over three months now.

The National Lottery has said that they are seeking a change in the rules that will allow for a must win game before long.
