It was a case of lucky Londis for one punter after they bought the winning €8.9m lotto ticket in a Duleek shop.

The National Lottery has revealed Wednesday’s Jackpot winner bought their ticket at Lowthe’s Londis on Main Street last Saturday (October 1st).

However, they’re still waiting to hear from Ireland’s newest Lotto millionaire, the 30th of 2022!

The Meath player is the eighth Lotto jackpot winner so far this year.

And whoever scooped the pot has become the second seven-figure winner in Meath this year, after a private syndicate won €4 million on their ticket bought in Summerhill back in February.

Store owner Seamus Lowthe says he was completely shocked when he found out that his store sold the winning life-changing ticket:

“The first thing I did was check my own ticket as I did the Lotto on Wednesday night for the first time in a while. I was in complete shock when the local rep called me the following day to let me know we’d sold the winning ticket. We’re a local family run store, open 38 years and selling the Lotto 30 years and this is our first ever big win. It’s complete magic for us”  

He added “It’s going to create some buzz and atmosphere around the village over the next couple of days. Everyone will be wondering who won. I hope it’s someone local, it would be great. It’s a class amount, life-changing. I’m absolutely delighted for the winner and I’m delighted for us. We wish them all the very best”.
