Lucky Wexford punter yet to claim €350,000
LOTTO REVEALS €20M UNCLAIMED IN 2009
A WEXFORD punter is sitting on a small fortune, but they may not realise it.
The Lotto Plus 1 draw yielded a jackpot of €350,000 for a lucky Wexford person recently, but the jackpot remains unclaimed.
The Quick Pick ticket was bought in Pettitts SuperValu on the Quay in Wexford last week and the draw took place on Wednesday. March 24.
The prize has not been claimed yet and Siobhán O'Keeffe of Pettitts is anxious that it doesn't go the way of some € 20 million which went unclaimed in prizes last year.
'Maybe this ticket is just sitting in someone's purse or wallet and they just haven't realised it,' said Siobhán.
As the Lotto Plus 1 and Plus 2 draws don't get the same publicity as the main draw, many people may even be unaware there was a Wexford winner last week, she noted.
Earlier this week the National Lottery revealed that some €20 million in prizes went unclaimed in throughout County Wexford last year.
