A National Lottery player from Co. Meath collected their whopping Lotto jackpot prize of €3,987,540 at Lottery HQ on Thursday afternoon. 

The player, who is the sole winner of the ticket and wishes to remain anonymous, is still trying to come to terms with becoming a millionaire overnight’Speaking about the win they said,  “I’ve had over a week to process the win and still can’t wrap my head around it! I kept double checking and triple checking the ticket all week to make sure I hadn’t made a mistake, but today, the ticket was confirmed, and I nearly keeled over when I received my cheque and seen all the numbers. It’s the most surreal feeling ever”, he said.

The local man from Meath purchased his winning quick pick ticket on the day of the draw (18th March) in Bowe’s EuroSpar in the centre of Duleek village.

I’m determined to share this prize with my nearest and dearest to spread some joy. I’ve already given some of my friends some money to help change their lives a little and I’m in the process of dividing the remainder of the prize out amongst my family. I’m can’t wait to hop on a plane and take a nice long holiday in the sun over the next couple of months to really let the win really sink in!”, he added.
