The biggest winners of the day were a syndicate from Westmeath who collected their €1 million prize which they won in the Lotto Plus 1 draw on Saturday 22nd September.

The lucky Westmeath syndicate who wish to keep their win private have spoken of their joy at becoming the first winners of the €1 million Lotto Plus prize since the top prize for Lotto Plus 1 was doubled from €500,000 last month. 

“It has been a crazy week,” said a member of the lucky syndicate.

“We started getting calls from the head of the Lotto syndicate on the Sunday morning after the draw and we were absolutely stunned – we just couldn’t believe it. We’ve been keeping our heads down all week to let all of the excitement in the town die down a little bit. We’ll certainly enjoy the celebrations this week and we look forward to being able to help family and friends with our winnings as soon as we can,” they said.
