€12.8 million Lotto jackpot claimed by syndicate in Dublin

This is the first time this year that the jackpot has climbed this high.


Updated 20.51

THE WINNING TICKET for last night’s €12,849,224 million jackpot has been claimed by a syndicate of winners.

Earlier, it was confirmed that the ticket was sold in SuperValu in Knocklyon, Dublin.

There was just one winning ticket – making it the largest jackpot so far this year.

The National Lottery says the winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on the day of the draw.

This evening the Lottery confirmed that the lucky winners had been in touch and made arrangements to claim their prize money.

Other than the existence of the syndicate, little concrete is currently known about the winners.

The winning numbers drawn were 2, 15, 19, 26, 37, 38 and the Bonus number 39.

One person, another Super Valu customer, this time in Portlaoise, is now 179,034 the richer after coming one number short. This is the first time this year that the jackpot has climbed this high.

Last month, a work syndicate collected a cheque for €88,587,275 after buying the winning ticket for the EuroMillions lottery on Tuesday 24 January.
