A Waterford mother who went into a Tesco Store to do her weekly shopping walked out a cool €193,300 richer – after discovering she was in possession of a winning Lotto ticket!

The woman was unaware she and her family had been holding onto the winning Lotto Match 5 + Bonus for several weeks, and only realised their great fortune when she decided to get a bundle of old lottery tickets scanned.

The lucky family syndicate made up of the woman, her husband and adult children celebrated in style when they visited the famous National Lottery Winners room today to claim their mega prize.

The Quick Pick ticket was purchased on Saturday 21st October at the Tesco store in Kilbarry in Co. Waterford.

Unaware of the win for a number of weeks after the draw, the family matriarch made the discovery on her weekly shopping trip to the Tesco store.

The lucky syndicate wish to keep their win private, but that hasn’t stopped the happy group from sharing the news with their family and friends.
