While there was much dismay locally in Claremorris when the deadline passed on Friday for a mystery Lotto winner to claim a €2.9 million jackpot, Mayo's Lotto luck hasn't run out just yet.

Another Lotto millionaire was made just a few miles down the road in Roches Centra, Balla, yesterday evening (Monday).
