Life-changing top prize win at Tallaght petrol station 

CircleK Kilnamanagh

A National Lottery player had a car journey to remember after popping into a Tallaght petrol station and leaving with a top prize win on a Mega Money Multiplier scratch card. The astonishing €250,000 prize was won at the Circle K Kilnamanagh petrol station on the Maybury Road in Tallaght.  

The winner was delighted to collect their cheque at Lotto HQ and explained that it was a last-minute decision to make the life-changing scratch card purchase. “I pulled into the petrol station on the way home from work as I didn’t want to land home too early – I’d only be lumped with more jobs! I decided to mix things up a bit and go for a different scratch card to the one I might normally go for,” he said. 

The winner went on to admit that it took some time to believe what he was seeing “I went out and sat in the car to scratch it and couldn’t believe my eyes. I’d just won €250,000! Even though you can see it right in front of you, you still can’t wrap your head around it!”
