A ticket worth £1 million on the Irish Lotto has yet to be claimed. A Ladbrokes outlet in east Glasgow sold the winning tickets to a punter last week, although nobody has yet stepped forth to claim the prize, which is worth £1 million. It is thought that the ticket had a total value of £12.
The bet was placed in the Westmuir Street, Parkhead shop on January 11. According to the Ladbrokes spokesperson – the winner was not one of the regulars. With all of the regulars accounted for, they therefore have no idea who purchased the ticket. Ladbrokes are desperately trying to discover information which might lead to them being able to track down the winner.
The Irish Lotto took place on Saturday, with the winning numbers being determined as 14, 18, 25, 27, 33, and 44. One Scottish customer landed over a £1m, to become the third millionaire in Scotland in a little over a week. The unidentified winner will join David and Carol Martin (who pocketed £33m in the National Lottery) last week as a new Scottish millionaire. Of course, he or she will need to find their ticket first.
A fourth person in Scotland (Perth) also became a millionaire in the same week, although not via the lottery. The player bagged a £2m win at Paddy Power Casino, by winning on a fruit machine.
Scotland appears to be on something of a lucky streak at the moment, but somebody will be left kicking themselves if they don’t check their tickets soon, and pocket their £1 million cash prize. Of course, the ticket may just be lost, so everyone should keep their eyes peeled for it.
