Donegal couple collect 12 million euro Lotto cheque


A Co Donegal couple have collected a cheque for over 12 million euro from the National Lottery.

The delighted winners,  who wish to remain anonymous, won the prize in last Wednesday’s Lotto draw (4 June 2014). The last time the jackpot reached near this amount was in March 2012.

“This means a lot,” smiled the happy winners. “We’re on cloud nine!”

The €12 winning ticket was purchased in American House on the Main St in Bundoran, Co. Donegal and the winning line was a Quick Pick. In August 2012 the store sold a EuroMillions Match 5 winning ticket worth €54,277.

The good news is still sinking in for the happy couple. They’re looking forward to making plans but have nothing definite planned at the moment.

Fifty Lotto jackpots have been won in Co. Donegal since the game began in 1988. This latest win brings Donegal’s total amount won in Lotto jackpot prizes to over €61.4 million
