A lucky Lotto player from Galway won the top prize of €250,000 on last night’s National Lottery Lotto Plus 2 Draw.
This was the first Lotto Plus draw since exciting game changes were introduced which sees in excess of 50% more winners and the creation of more millionaires across Lotto and Lotto Plus.
Last night’s winning ticket was bought in the busy Eason store on Shop Street, Galway. Manager David Boyce said today there is massive excitement in the city at news of the win.
The new enhanced Lotto Plus game was launched last week with a nationwide brand campaign with the theme The Celebrations. The ad focuses on the Lotto house band, The Celebrations, who are exhausted after playing “Celebrations” for winners for the last 30 years – and they face being even busier with the new game changes promising more winners and more millionaires!
Under the game enhancements there has been no change in the cost of playing the main Lotto game. But to facilitate the significant prize increases the price of a Lotto Plus line has risen by 50 cent to one Euro.
