# Luck of the Draw
Dublin man wins €350,000 in Lotto after picking 'wrong numbers'
The man made a mistake while typing his numbers while buying an online ticket and it’s the best mistake he’s ever made.

A DUBLIN MAN won €350,000 on the Lotto thanks to a mistake he made when buying his ticket.

Speaking today as he collected his cheque at the Natonal Lottery offices, he said: “I started buying my Lotto tickets online a few months ago as I wanted to make sure I was in the draws while away on holidays. This time I made a mistake when I was typing in my usual numbers, and got one of the numbers wrong.”

But if I hadn’t made that mistake, I wouldn’t be here – it’s just gas!

The lucky winner bought his ticket on the National Lottery’s Play Online service and won the top prize in the Lotto Plus 1 draw, which he said he only recently started playing.

He said he needs to get used to his surprising news now before deciding how he will spend his winnings.

There was a second winning ticketholder of the Lotto Plus 1 top prize on Saturday with the winning ticket sold in Dalkey Post Office in Dublin.
