Lotto winner to buy Ferrari

A two-seat convertible Ferrari is on the shopping list of a man who won the Lotto on a ticket bought in Ennis on Wednesday.

Today (Friday), a married couple who ‘happened to be passing through’ Ennis, collected the Midweek Lotto jackpot of €5,318,671.

They purchased their €7.50 Quick Pick Lotto ticket in the Roslevan Stores, Ennis, on Wednesday last, the day of the jackpot draw. This was the first time the store has sold a winning Lotto jackpot ticket.

This is the 40th Lotto jackpot to be won from a ticket purchased in County Clare. Clare’s largest jackpot prize of €8,302,209 was won in Kilrush, on March 5, 2014.

Today’s lucky couple, who do not wish their win to be a public one, are not from Clare and declared themselves “delighted but not surprised” to have scooped the bigger, better Lotto jackpot. The lucky husband said, while sipping a glass of champagne in National Lottery offices

“I always said I’d win Lotto, but it was still a very big surprise when it happened, and all the more because I’ve been playing since 1988, when the game began, and always play my own numbers. On Wednesday, I included just one line of Quick Pick numbers – as insurance- and that’s the line that won’, he smiled.

Today’s happy family have some plans to celebrate the win, including, “A trip to Las Vegas, a family weekend away very soon, just to chat through it all.”

“We’re going to look after the family, children and grandchildren, and make sure they’re sorted. And I’m definitely buying a two-seat convertible Ferrari. It’s been on my bucket list, and now it’s time to act,” the man said.
