Once again, the National Lottery is back with a huge announcement regarding two players who were lucky enough to win big. As always, the National Lottery keeps getting bigger and bigger for the players in UK and IRE. There is an enormous number of people from IRE who are now winning huge prizes from the National Lottery.
This time, the National Lottery has the first winner with a jackpot prize-winning amount of €8,530,884 from the Lotto jackpot on January 27, 2021. The National Lottery has revealed that the winner is a resident of Limerick and is now officially a millionaire. The player is also the first Lotto Jackpot prize winner for the year 2021.
The National Lottery officials also had the opportunity to know the story of the winner. The player informed the officials that he was in complete disbelief when he checked his email. When he saw the email, he thought that he had only one €5 or €6, but he had never expected to win such a huge amount.
The player informed that even when he checked the email, he could not believe what he was saying. He logged out of his email several times and checked the email again and again. At first, he thought it was some sort of scam but realized it was not and he just had his wish answered.
The player informed that he was not going to let the win get over to his head. He has no plans of going on a spending spree and loses all his money to luxuries and things that he does not need.
The player informed that the first thing he did when he learned about the win was called his family and inform them. They were all in shock and could not believe the news in the first place.
The winner stated that the money will be kept as saving and most of the money will be spent on his family. He has no plans of wasting it on unnecessary things and he will be paying some bills with it as well.
However, the player stated he will take his family on a vacation once the pandemic is over and his entire family is vaccinated.
Meanwhile, another lucky family from Co. Kerry is now celebrating a huge win. The family received their €1 million prize cheque through the post and were extremely excited at the win. The family managed to win the prize from the Lotto Plus 1 draw that was held on December 23, 2020.
The family had purchased the Quick Pick ticket for the Lotto Plus 1 game from Whyte’s Centra Store that is located in Castleisland in Kerry. The family informed the officials that they already knew about the win but waited until the Christmas and New Year holidays were over before claiming it.
