A busy service station in Athlone has been confirmed as the winning location for last Saturday’s winning Lotto jackpot ticket worth €6,489,165.
The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold on Thursday, May 20, at the Applegreen service station located just off the M6/N6 motorway in Arcadia Retail Park.
Isaias Garcia, Site Manager, Applegreen service station, noted that an air of excitement presently prevails amongst staff following the announcement by National Lottery headquarters.
“It’s thrilling news and we were absolutely delighted to find out that the lucky ticket was bought here at Applegreen Athlone. We have been talking about nothing else ever since and the team is having lots of fun with it.
“Nobody knows who the lucky customer is but we hope they enjoy their new life. Are we jealous? Maybe a tiny bit but I suppose if you’re not going to buy a winning lottery ticket, the next best thing is selling one,” Isaias enthused.
