Could it be you? Waterford Lotto players urged to check tickets for unclaimed €70,000 prize

Lotto players in Waterford have been urged to check their old tickets, with just hours left to claim a €70,725 prize.

The National Lottery today issued a final appeal to people to check their tickets urgently ahead of today’s dreadline.

And if you happen to have the following numbers – 14, 20, 24, 38, 41, 45 and the Bonus 03 – you will be over €70,000 the richer for it.

These numbers are from the winning €6 Quick Pick ticket that purchased back in Febraury 8 at the Applegreen Service Station on the Dungarvan Road in Clonmel, a short distance from the Waterford border. There were two winners of the shared Lotto Match 5 + Bonus prize of €141,450.

The winner has already had 181 days to claim their prize. Usually, National Lottery players have 90 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize, but due to the Covid-19 public health crisis the prize claim deadline was temporarily extended to 181 days following a change to the National Lottery licence.

A National Lottery spokesperson said today: “There are just a matter of hours left to claim this Lotto prize of €70,725 and we are once again appealing to our players to check their tickets carefully. The deadline for this prize is today at 5.30 pm so if this Tipperary player does find their winning ticket before then, we urge them to contact our prize claims team immediately on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize.”
