Less than 72 hours left for raffle winner to claim €1 million prize

Ticketholders have 90 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize in person at National Lottery Headquarters on Abbey Street in Dublin.

THE WINNER OF the €1 million National Lottery Christmas Millionaire Raffle has just three days left to claim their prize.

The deadline of Friday 31 March is fast approaching.

The lucky ticket was purchased at the Topaz Service Station on Lower Tivoli Road in Cork on 21 December 2016.

The Christmas Millionaire top prize winning ticket of €1 million, was ticket number 179740.

National Lottery Chief Executive Dermot Griffin said:

With only three days to go until the deadline we would urge all National Lottery players to check in their homes and cars for any misplaced Millionaire Raffle tickets purchased just before Christmas last year, and ask all players to remind anyone that they might have bought a raffle ticket for as a Christmas present to also check their tickets.

Ticketholders have 90 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize in person at National Lottery Headquarters on Abbey Street in Dublin. The claim deadline for this prize is this Friday.

Players have often left it late to claim prizes with some coming forward on the very last day. In August 2016, a lucky Cork family syndicate claimed a €381,863 EuroMillions Prize just one hour before the prize claim deadline.

The ticket holder is advised to sign the back of the ticket and contact the National Lottery Prize Claims Team on 01 836 4444.
