A lucky Tipperary Lotto player will share a prize of €152,666 with a Dublin player after matching 5 numbers and the bonus in the main Lotto draw on Wednesday night (24th February).

The two lucky ticket holders are set to claim €76,333 each after their Wednesday night wins.
The National Lottery has confirmed that the Tipperary winner has made contact and arrangements are now being made for the lucky winner to claim their prize.
The Tipperary winner purchased their Quick Pick ticket at the SuperValu in Poppyfields Retail Park in Clonmel on 23rd February.
Store owner Stuart Martin spoke of his delight at hearing the news: “We’re a large family run business with 45 members of staff and as soon as we heard the news, the excitement started to build around the shop. We have owned the store for the past six years so it’s lovely to hear that one of our customers has had a nice bit of luck. We wish them all the best and hope they really enjoy it!”
The Lotto numbers from Wednesday night’s draw (24th February) were: 02, 10, 12, 13, 38, 40 and the bonus number was: 17.
