A couple in their early 40s say they will spend some of their €7.3 million Irish Lotto winnings on a dream house, complete with pinball table and indoor slide! The pair eventually came forward to collect their bounty after matching all six main numbers in the draw on Saturday 19th September on a ticket bought from the Supervalu shop at Dun Laoghaire’s Killiney Shopping Centre.

Their entry was valid for eight draws and the couple admitted they didn’t usually check their numbers until all the draws had been played, but as the husband recalled in The Journal, “I’d heard on the radio that a syndicate had won the jackpot, and I usually wait until the 8 draws are over on the ticket before I check it. So I put it into a ticket checker in a shop in Killiney and the message told me to contact National Lottery offices.

I thought ‘that’s strange’ so when I went back to the office, I put in the numbers on the web checker and all these fireworks went off. But I still didn’t believe anything great had happened.”

It was only after he returned home and checked again online that the family began to accept that they were due a big payday. They celebrated with their young children by going out for desserts and have now compiled a wish list for their newfound fortune.

The indoor slide will be a major feature of the family’s new dream home, for which they are now hunting after years of renting. They also intend to buy a popcorn maker, install a home cinema and take trips to Disneyland in Florida, Jamaica and to Venezuela to witness lightning storms.

If you would like to follow in their footsteps, Irish Lotto tickets are on sale for tonight’s €3.5 million draw and you can get hold of them at authorised retailers in Ireland or through the link on the homepage, wherever you are. good luck!
