A QUICK Pick ticket which was sold at a shop in Clare came within one number of sharing the Lotto jackpot of €6.4 million on Saturday.
The ticket was sold at Loughville Motors Centra store on the Lahinch Road in Ennis and came agonisingly close to sharing the big prize.
However the owner of the ticket still has plenty to celebrate with the Lotto match five plus bonus prize worth €61,382.
Anybody who bought their ticket at the store is being urged to check their tickets.
“With so many big winners in Saturday’s Lotto draw, we are asking everyone who bought a ticket for the draw to check their tickets carefully,” said a National Lottery spokesperson.
“If you are one of the winners of these prizes, stay calm and be sure to sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place.

“The winners can contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize,” the spokesperson added.
The winning Lotto jackpot ticket was sold in Westmeath, while another player in Mayo won €1 million in the Lotto Plus 1 draw. The winning Lotto numbers for Saturday night’s €6.4 million jackpot are: 01, 05, 12, 23, 45, 46 and the Bonus was 41.
