Carlow/Kilkenny people urged to check numbers after Lotto win at airport

Suzana Sorak | Illinois Lottery

There was one victor of last night's jackpot, worth more than €5.4 million.

The winning numbers on that ticket were 03 30 31 37 42 43 49.

"It has been a really busy period here with a lot of traffic through the store, and we have no idea who the lucky victor might be".

Suzana Sorak, of Willowbrook, won the prize when she matched all five numbers - 03, 05, 19, 24, 40 - on her quick pick ticket, according to the Illinois Lottery.

Given the amount of traffic that's gone through the airport in recent days, it's entirely plausible that the victor was someone home from overseas for the holidays, making an already special Christmas into probably the most unforgettable one yet. The tickets can be checked in store or through the National Lottery App.

The Giants appear to be desperately banking on a change of scenery helping Longoria rediscover his old form. The Giants finished the season with Pablo Sandoval at third base; he batted.225 in 47 games.

Granted, it's not quite €5.4 million, but those less sizeable amounts will still come in very handy over the Christmas.

Mr Griffin added: "We are also delighted to be ending the year with our 12th Lotto Jackpot victor of 2017".

And it could be someone arriving back to Carlow or Kilkenny for the holidays, or a local up to collect a loved-one, after it was been confirmed the winning ticket was sold in the WH Smith shop in the arrivals hall at Dublin Airport.

As well as the top prize of one million Euro there is a prize of €250,000, 4 prizes of €100,000, ten prizes of €10,000, 25 prizes of €5,000, 115 prizes of €1,000 and 4,500 prizes of €500.
