SPAR Belfry Citywest

A recent Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot draw was certainly a night of capital gains as two separate players in Dublin scooped two huge prizes in the bumper €7.5 million draw. The biggest winner of the night was a lucky Lotto player in Citywest in Dublin 24 who became the latest National Lottery millionaire after winning the Lotto Plus 1 top prize of €1 million. The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold on the day of the draw at The Belfry Spar store in City West in the south west of Dublin.

Manager of the winning store, Warren Brennan has urged the residents of Citywest to check their Lotto tickets and said that due to the location of the store, it is more likely that the winner will be from the area, “The staff in the store are absolutely buzzing, knowing that somebody who came into the store yesterday is now a millionaire, it’s truly incredible! The store is situated in the heart of a large residential area here in Citywest so the likelihood is that one of the local residents is a brand new millionaire. Whoever they are, we wish them every bit of luck with their million euro win,” he said.

A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “It was a bumper night of winnings for a large number of players in Wednesday night’s Lotto draw.
