Two lucky punters scoop €100,000 windfall in Lotto Christmas Millionaire Raffle

Two lucky punters have each scooped a €100,000 windfall in the Lotto Christmas Millionaire Raffle.

Shane Malone, from Ballymun, Dublin celebrated his birthday on Tuesday by collecting the massive windfall from Lotto HQ.

He said: “I still cannot believe I have won.

“I was sitting at home on Sunday evening and I remembered to check my raffle ticket from the previous night.

“I scanned it on the National Lottery App and I was absolutely shocked when I saw the €100,000 prize flashing up.

“I had to keep rechecking the ticket on the website to make sure I hadn’t made a mistake.

“We are going on holidays together in a few weeks so at least we will have some pocket money.

“We want to buy a house together in the near future so this money will go some way to making that dream come through.”

The other winner was a recent college graduate, also from Dublin, who wished to remain anonymous.

He said: “The timing of this win couldn’t be any better.

“I have just recently graduated from college and I am still looking for a job.

“I looked at my bank account after the holidays and I had .60 cent left after all of my spending over Christmas.

“The young man who collected the cheque spoke of his plans for his €100,000 windfall,

“I want to get a car but I just failed my driving test so I will have to wait for a while yet before I get one.

“I’m going to surprise my girlfriend and my family with a short holiday next week to celebrate properly.”
