Lotto fever has gripped the nation today with a ticket sold as last night’s (Wednesday 13th June) mega €2,895,277 million Lotto jackpot was won.
And the Cavan shop that sold the golden ticket is marking its second Lotto Jackpot win in five years.
The winning Quick Pick selection ticket was sold on Tuesday 12th June at the Spa XL Service Station in Swanlibar, Co. Cavan.
The small village of Swanlibar is situated in the north-west of Co. Cavan, close to the Fermanagh border.
A delighted owner of the Spa XL Service Station, Francis O’Reilly said:
“We’re certainly lucky up this part of the country. We sold a €2 million Lotto Jackpot ticket in 2013. We are just thrilled for one of our lucky customers this morning.
The town is going absolutely bananas checking their tickets since the crack of dawn but we don’t have any word on who the winner is just yet.
We do get some passing trade coming through the town but the majority of our customers would be local so we’re hoping that one of them has won this truly life-changing prize."
This is the 5th Lotto jackpot win so far this year with jackpot prizes exceeding €24million.
The winning Lotto numbers were: 05, 21, 25, 29, 41, 43 and the bonus 31
