Dublin Family’s Last-Minute Decision Yields €15 Million Lotto Jackpot

A Dublin family experienced the shock of a lifetime as they collected their massive €14.67 million cheque at National Lottery Headquarters on Monday. This life-changing amount was won by a spur-of-the-moment decision to participate in the Lotto draw, which took place on January 27. The family’s lucky ticket was purchased online just minutes before the cutoff time.

The decision to buy the ticket was anything but premeditated. One family member recounted the spontaneous moment that led to their incredible windfall. “To be honest, the ticket purchase was totally last minute,” they confessed. “We only thought of it by chance after 7pm that evening, so it was a bit of a rush to make sure we logged on and got the ticket before the 7.30pm deadline.” With no chance of making a dash to the shop at that late hour, they appreciated the convenience of playing online.

Even after becoming millionaires overnight, the family has remained remarkably composed. They kept the news to themselves until it was time to claim their prize. “We realised on the night of the draw that we won. I checked the ticket first and then I think I might have been speechless for a few minutes. When I eventually got my words back, I was quick to share the news and the utter surprise,” one member revealed. Despite the initial shock, sleep came surprisingly easy that night, likely due to the sheer exhilaration. They patiently waited to visit the Winners Room and see the enormous cheque in writing.

The family admitted it was a surreal experience but is planning their future with level-headedness.

They aren’t the only ones celebrating big wins at Lotto HQ. A winner from Tipperary collected their €500,000 prize after hitting it big in the EuroMillions Plus draw on February 16. Their ticket was purchased at the Circle K on Kickham Street in Thurles, Tipperary.

Recalling the moment of discovery, the Tipperary winner shared their story: “I checked the ticket on the night of the draw and immediately got the ‘You’ve won Big’ message, which I had never seen before. I checked the results straight away and initially got a little confused between whether I needed to have the lucky stars or not so I was half doubting myself, convinced that there was no way that this could be real. And then, of course, I could see I had all five numbers needed in the Plus game so I knew.”

However, it wasn’t an instant celebration for the Tipperary winner. “Since it was a Friday night, I had to wait all weekend before I could contact Claims to confirm my win and make arrangements so it was a weekend of holding on to my ticket and waiting to make that all-important call. I don’t play often, but I sure am glad I did this time.”
