Jubilant celebrations were underway today at the lucky Spar Service Station in Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow after the National Lottery this morning confirmed that they sold the winning ticket for Wednesday night’s massive €11,255,280 jackpot prize.
The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold on the day of the draw (Wednesday) at the Spar Service Station on Monastery Road in Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow.
Since the inception of the Lotto game in 1988, there have been 55 Lotto jackpot winners in Co. Wicklow, amounting to a massive €87.2 million in jackpot prizes alone.
Ken O’Connor who is the owner of the lucky Spar store is no stranger to Lotto jackpot joy having previously sold a Lotto jackpot ticket worth €5.7 million at another of his Spar stores in Rathfarnham, Dublin 14 last October.
The delighted shop owner said, “We just can’t believe it! We heard the news yesterday that the winning ticket was sold in Wicklow but we had no idea it was us until last night, it’s just fantastic. The shop is absolutely buzzing this morning and I am just thrilled for our customers and of course our staff. Just last year, we sold another winning Lotto ticket worth €5.7 million at another one of our stores in Rathfarnham in Dublin so we’re definitely a lucky retailer for our customers. Whoever the winner is, we wish them every bit of luck enjoying this life-changing win,” he said.
Among the celebrations at the winning Spar Service Station in Enniskerry in Co. Wicklow, a National Lottery spokesperson also confirmed that it is still waiting to hear from the lucky winner (s) of the €11.2 million prize. They said, “The National Lottery are still waiting to hear from the lucky ticketholder of this truly incredible prize. It is possible that the winner is still unaware that they may be in possession of the winning ticket so we are encouraging anybody who has a ticket, to check it carefully and to contact our prize claims team on 01 836 4444 and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize”.
The mega jackpot win is the 15th highest jackpot since the Lotto was launched in 1988 and last night’s lucky ticketholder from the Garden County also winner becomes the 6th Lotto jackpot winner of 2019. So far this year, 14 brand new millionaires have been created by Lotto and Lotto Plus games.
